Bit the bullet
Purchased the 2000i companion unit yesterday in preparation for the weekend. More than likely will just be running a window A/C unit for awhile...due to the face that our original roof top unit is being serviced.
Down the road I anticipate adding another 2000, especially when the larger A/C unit is up and running and/if we add more devices that pull power. However this should cover us until things get more complicated.
Lets all hope this weather cools off soon....be careful out there. The dogs are staying home this weekend...my husky hasn't left the tile floor near the central air vent all week.
