10/10

We thought our 20+ year old first-generation furnace needed replacement. So we started looking around for companies and brands. Denise of Air Treatment gave us a lot of helpful recommendations (I like to understand all the alternatives). She told us that if our furnace died they could replace it with promptly. Well, that happened and they did. They were helpful loaning us heaters and they were efficient replacing the furnace. Very few surprises and none were unpleasant. I recommend Air Treatment and I recommend Denise.

To hook up Hi Fi speakers to a receiver, we needed speaker wire. In the old days, we just used "lamp cord" -- the kind of two-conductor wire used to connect lamps to electrical sockets. Now there exist cables sold specifically for this application. There is a lot of superstition sold with those cables and that increases the price. I wanted just reasonable cables, not high-markup ones such as you would find in Future Shop. Canadian Tire sells packages RCA-brand speaker cable for about the same price as lamp cord. On advantage of the speaker cable is that it is designed so that you can tell one conductor from the other. This makes it easier to ensure that your speakers are not out of phase (i.e. the polarity of all speaker connections all match). When looking at wire gauges, lower numbers are better. That means that there will be less signal loss, all other things being equal.

I needed to replace a 30+ year old desk lamp. I checked Living Lighting and Royal Lighting before going to Ikea. Ikea had a nice-looking, simple, effective lamp, more to my taste than at the other stores. The specialist stores were helpful and knowledgeable but the lamps were more ornate and quite a bit more expensive. Ikea does cost more time. The you are forced to go follow too much of the predetermined meandering path through the store. There are short-cuts, but not enough.
