McCain against Veterans?

Senator John McCain has said things like, "I know the veterans.  I know them well.  And, I know that they know that I'll take care of them."  It was stunning, because nothing could be further from the truth.  It's something that our friend Charlie Fink even made an issue of in his new video at Lunatics and Liars <> .
A lot of you have asked to explain why Senator McCain gets consistently low ratings from veterans groups.   Below is a full list of votes, statements, and positions of Senator McCain's, which shows that Senator McCain has consistently bailed on troops and veterans.
It's a very long, but comprehensive list.  I encourage you to take a look and pass it around.  An even more robust list, complete with video, can be found at <> , as well.

Brandon Friedman
Iraq and Afghanistan War Veteran
Vice Chairman,
Senator John McCain's Record on Troop and Veterans' Issues
Voting Against Veterans
·  Veterans Groups Give McCain Failing Grades.  In its most recent legislative ratings, the non-partisan Disabled American Veterans gave Sen. McCain a <> 20 percent rating for his voting record on veterans' issues.  Similarly, the non-partisan Iraq & Afghanistan Veterans of America gave McCain a <> "D" grade for his poor voting record on veterans' issues, including McCain's votes against additional body armor for troops in combat and additional funding for PTSD and TBI screening and treatment.
·  McCain Voted Against Increased Funding for Veterans' Health Care.  Although McCain told voters at a campaign rally that improving veterans' health care was his top domestic priority, he voted against increasing funding for veterans' health care in 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007. (Greenville News, 12/12/2007; S.Amdt. 2745 to S.C.R. 95, Vote 40, <> 3/10/04; Senate S.C.R. 18, Vote 55, <> 3/16/05; S.Amdt. 3007 to S.C.R. 83, Vote 41, <> 3/14/06; H.R. 1591, Vote 126, <> 3/29/07)
·  McCain Voted At Least 28 Times Against Veterans' Benefits, Including Healthcare.   Since arriving in the U.S. Senate in 1987, McCain has voted at least 28 times against ensuring important benefits for America's veterans, including providing adequate healthcare. (2006 Senate Vote # <> 7, <> 41, <> 63, <> 67, <> 98, <> 222; 2005 Senate Votes # <> 55, <> 89, <> 90, <> 251, <> 343; 2004 Senate Votes # <> 40, <> 48, <> 145; 2003 Senate Votes # <> 74, <> 81, <> 83; 1999 Senate Vote # <> 328; 1998 Senate Vote # <> 175; 1997 Senate Vote # <> 168; 1996 Senate Votes # <> 115, <> 275; 1995 Senate Votes # <> 76, <> 226, <> 466; 1994 Senate Vote # <> 306; 1992 Senate Vote # <> 194; 1991 Senate Vote # <> 259)

·  McCain Voted Against $44.3 Billion for Veterans Programs.  McCain was one of five senators to vote against a bill providing $44.3 billion for the Department of Veterans Affairs, plus funding for other federal agencies. (H.R. 2684, Vote 328, <> 10/15/99)
·  McCain Voted Against $47 Billion for the Department of Veterans Affairs.  McCain was one of eight senators to vote against a bill that provided $47 billion for the Department of Veterans Affairs. (H.R. 4635, Vote 272, <> 10/12/00)
·  McCain Voted Against $51 Billion in Veterans Funding.  McCain was one of five senators to vote against the bill and seven to vote against the conference report that provided $51.1 billion for the Department of Veterans Affairs, as well as funding for the federal housing, environmental and emergency management agencies and NASA. (H.R. 2620, Vote 334, <> 11/8/01; Vote 269, <> 8/2/01)
·  McCain Voted Against $122.7 Billion for Department of Veterans Affairs.  McCain voted against an appropriations bill that included $122.7 billion in fiscal 2004 for the Department of Veterans Affairs, Housing and Urban Development and other related agencies. (H.R. 2861, Vote 449, <> 11/12/03)
·  McCain Opposed $500 Million for Counseling Services for Veterans with Mental Disorders.  McCain voted against an amendment to appropriate $500 million annually from 2006-2010 for counseling, mental health and rehabilitation services for veterans diagnosed with mental illness, posttraumatic stress disorder or substance abuse. (S. 2020, S.Amdt. 2634, Vote 343, <> 11/17/05)
·  McCain opposed an Assured Funding Stream for Veterans' Health Care.  McCain opposed providing an assured funding stream for veterans' health care, taking into account annual changes in veterans' population and inflation. (S.Amdt. 3141 to S.C.R. 83, Vote 63, <> 3/16/06)
·  McCain Voted Against Adding More Than $400 Million for Veterans' Care.  McCain was one of 13 Republicans to vote against providing an additional $430 million to the Department of Veterans Affairs for outpatient care and treatment for veterans. (S.Amdt. 3642 to H.R. 4939, Vote 98, <> 4/26/06)
·  McCain Supported Outsourcing VA Jobs.  McCain opposed an amendment that would have prevented the Department of Veterans Affairs from outsourcing jobs, many held by blue-collar veterans, without first giving the workers a chance to compete. (S.Amdt. 2673 to H.R. 2642, Vote 315, <> 9/6/07)
·  McCain Opposed the 21st Century GI Bill Because It Was Too Generous.  McCain did not vote on the GI Bill that will provide better educational opportunities to veterans of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, paying full tuition at in-state schools and living expenses for those who have served at least three years since the 9/11 attacks. McCain said he opposes the bill because he thinks the generous benefits would "encourage more people to leave the military." (S.Amdt. 4803 to H.R. 2642, Vote 137, <> 5/22/08; Chattanooga Times Free Press, 6/2/08; Boston Globe, <> 5/23/08;, <> 5/26/08)
·  Disabled American Veterans Legislative Director Said That McCain's Proposal Would Increase Costs For Veterans Because His Plan Relies On Private Hospitals Which Are More Expensive and Which Could Also Lead To Further Rationing Of Care.  "To help veterans who live far from VA hospitals or need specialized care the VA can't provide, McCain proposed giving low-income veterans and those who incurred injury during their service a card they could use at private hospitals. The proposal is not an attempt to privatize the VA, as critics have alleged, but rather, an effort to improve care and access to it, he said. Joe Violanti, legislative director of the Disabled American Veterans, a nonpartisan organization, said the proposal would increase costs because private hospitals are more expensive. The increased cost could lead to further rationing of care, he said." (Las Vegas Sun, <> 8/10/08)
Lack of Support for the Troops
·  McCain co-sponsored the Use of Force Authorization.  McCain supported the bill that gave President George W. Bush the green light--and a blank check--for going to war with Iraq. (SJ Res 46, <> 10/3/02)
·  McCain Opposed Increasing Spending on TRICARE and Giving Greater Access to National Guard and Reservists.  Although his campaign website devotes a large section to veterans issues, including expanding benefits for reservists and members of the National Guard, McCain voted against increasing spending on the TRICARE program by $20.3 billion over 10 years to give members of the National Guard and Reserves and their families greater access to the health care program. The increase would be offset by a reduction in tax cuts for the wealthy. (S.Amdt. 324 to S.C.R. 23, Vote 81, <> 3/25/03)
·  McCain voted against holding Bush accountable for his actions in the war.  McCain opposed the creation of an independent commission to investigate the development and use of intelligence leading up to the war in Iraq. (S.Amdt. 1275 to H.R. 2658, Vote 284, <> 7/16/03)
·  McCain voted Against Establishing a $1 Billion Trust Fund for Military Health Facilities.  McCain voted against establishing a $1 billion trust fund to improve military health facilities by refusing to repeal tax cuts for those making more than $1 million a year. (S.Amdt. 2735 to S.Amdt. 2707 to H.R. 4297, Vote 7, <> 2/2/06)
·  Senator McCain opposed efforts to end the overextension of the military--a policy that is having a devastating impact on our troops.  McCain voted against requiring mandatory minimum downtime between tours of duty for troops serving in Iraq. (S.Amdt.. 2909 to S.Amdt. 2011 to HR 1585, Vote 341, 9/19/07; S.Amdt. 2012 to S.Amdt. 2011 to HR 1585, Vote 241, <> 7/11/07)
·  McCain announced his willingness to keep U.S. troops in Iraq for decades--a statement sure to inflame Iraqis and endanger American troops.  McCain: "Make it a hundred" years in Iraq and "that would be fine with me." (Derry, New Hampshire Town Hall meeting, <> 1/3/08)

·  McCain voted against a ban on waterboarding--a form of torture--in a move that could eventually endanger American troops.  According to ThinkProgress, "the Senate brought the Intelligence Authorization Bill to the floor, which contained a provision from Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) establishing one interrogation standard across the government. The bill requires the intelligence community to abide by the same standards as articulated in the Army Field Manual and bans waterboarding."  McCain voted against the bill.  (H.R. 2082, Vote 22, <> 2/13/08)
·  McCain Also Supported Outsourcing at Walter Reed.  McCain opposed an amendment to prevent the outsourcing of 350 federal employee jobs at Walter Reed Army Medical Center--outsourcing that contributed to the scandalous treatment of veterans at Walter Reed that McCain called a "disgrace." (S.Amdt. 4895 to H.R. 5631, Vote 234, <> 9/6/06; Speech to VFW in Kansas City, Mo., 4/4/08)
·  Senator McCain has consistently opposed any plan to withdraw troops from Iraq--a policy that has directly weakened American efforts in Afghanistan.  Senator McCain repeatedly voted against a timetable for withdrawing troops from Iraq. (S.Amdt. 3876 to S.Amdt. 3874 to H.R. 2764, Vote #438, <> 12/18/07; S.Amdt. 3875 to S.Amdt. 3874 to H.R. 2764, Vote #437, <> 12/18/07; S.Amdt.3164 to H.R. 3222, Vote #362, <> 10/3/07; S.Amdt. 2898 to S. Amdt. 2011 to H.R. 1585, Vote #346, <> 9/21/07; S. Amdt. 2924 to S.Amdt. 2011 to H.R.1585, Vote #345, <> 9/21/07; S.Amdt.2 087 to S.Amdt. 2011 to H.R. 1585, Vote #252, <> 7/18/07; S.Amdt. 643 to H.R. 1591, Vote #116, <> 3/27/07; S.Amdt. 4320 to S. 2766, Vote #182, <> 6/22/06; S.Amdt. 4442 to S. 2766, Vote #181, <> 6/22/06; S.Amdt. 2519 to S.1042, Vote #322, <> 11/15/05)
·  McCain said it's "not too important" when U.S. troops leave Iraq.  This exchange occurred on NBC's Today Show with Matt Lauer:
LAUER: If it's working, senator, do you now have a better estimate of when American forces can come home from Iraq?
McCAIN: No, but that's not too important.
(NBC, Today Show, <> 6/11/08)
Cheerleading for War with Iraq--While Afghanistan was Unfinished
·  McCain suggested that the war in Iraq could be won with a "smaller" force.  "But the fact is I think we could go in with much smaller numbers than we had to do in the past. But I don't believe it's going to be nearly the size and scope that it was in 1991." (CBS News, Face the Nation, <> 9/15/02)
·  McCain said winning the war would be "easy."  "I know that as successful as I believe we will be, and I believe that the success will be fairly easy, we will still lose some American young men or women." (CNN, <> 9/24/02)
·  McCain also said the actual fighting in Iraq would be easy. "We're not going to get into house-to-house fighting in Baghdad.  We may have to take out buildings, but we're not going to have a bloodletting of trading American bodies for Iraqi bodies." (CNN, <> 9/29/02)
·  Continuing his pattern, McCain also said on MSNBC that we would win the war in Iraq "easily." "But the point is that, one, we will win this conflict. We will win it easily." (MSNBC, 1/22/03)
·  McCain argued Saddam was "a threat of the first order."  Senator McCain said that a policy of containing Iraq to blunt its weapons of mass destruction program is "unsustainable, ineffective, unworkable and dangerous." McCain: "I believe Iraq is a threat of the first order, and only a change of regime will make Iraq a state that does not threaten us and others, and where liberated people assume the rights and responsibilities of freedom." (Speech to the Center for Strategic & International Studies, <> 2/13/03)
·  McCain echoed Bush and Cheney's rationale for going to war.  McCain: "We're going to win this victory. Tragically, we will lose American lives. But it will be brief.  We're going to find massive evidence of weapons of mass destruction . . . It's going to send the message throughout the Middle East that democracy can take hold in the Middle East." (Fox News, Hannity & Colmes, <> 2/21/03)
·  "But I believe, Katie, that the Iraqi people will greet us as liberators." (NBC, 3/20/03)
·  March 2003: "I believe that this conflict is still going to be relatively short." (NBC, Meet the Press, 3/30/03)
·  McCain echoed Bush and Cheney's talking points that the U.S. would only be in Iraq for a short time.  McCain: "It's clear that the end is very much in sight . . . It won't be long . . . it'll be a fairly short period of time." (ABC, 4/9/03

Why I love America

I just got this from a senion citizen, who happens to be a white male, in his 60's. Oh yeah, and he supports Obama, even campaigns for him weekly. I love this guy, he happens to be from the midwest, and my father in law. I love America because, despite all the bad people, the racists and hypocrites, the overwhelming majority are amazing and simply good people. The hardest working people with the can do attitude and the willingness to give everyone a shot. Live your dreams, and check the truth below:

 I have been totally appalled with the not so subtle racism rampant in the Presidential race. There is a "NEW" form of racism that is supplementing the original ugly version … more on this later. This interesting piece makes it a bit easier to see.

Could racism be the culprit?
 Ponder the following:
 What if the Obama's had paraded five children across the stage, including g
 a three month old infant and an unwed, pregnant teenage daughter?
 What if John McCain was a former president of the Harvard Law Review?
 What if Barack Obama finished fifth from the bottom of his graduating class?
 What if McCain had only married once, and Obama was a divorcee?
 What if Obama was the candidate who left his first wife after a severe
 disfiguring car accident, when she no longer measured up to his standards?
 What if Obama had met his second wife in a bar and had a long affair while
 he was still married?
 What if Michelle Obama was the wife who not only became addicted to pain
 killers but also acquired them illegally through her charitable organization?
 What if Cindy McCain graduated from Harvard?
 What if Obama had been a member of the Keating Five?
 (The Keating Five were five United States Senators accused of corruption
 in 1989, igniting a major political scandal as part of the larger Savings
 and Loan crisis of the late 1980s and early 1990s.)
 What if McCain was a charismatic, eloquent speaker?
 What if Obama couldn't read from a teleprompter?
 What if Obama was the one who had military experience that included
 discipline problems and a record of crashing seven planes?
 What if Obama was the one who was known to display publicly, on many
 occasions, a serious anger management problem?
 What if Michelle Obama's family had made their money from beer distribution?
 What if the Obama's had adopted a white child?
 You could easily add to this list. If these questions reflected reality,
 do you really believe the election numbers would be as close as they are?
 This is what racism does. It covers up, rationalizes and minimizes
 positive qualities in one candidate and emphasizes negative qualities in
 another when there is a color difference.
 Educational Background:
 Barack Obama:
 Columbia University - B.A. Political Science with a Specialization in
 International Relations.
 Harvard - Juris Doctor (J.D.) Magna Cum Laude
 Joseph Biden:
 University of Delaware - B.A. in History and B.A. in Political Science.
 Syracuse University College of Law - Juris Doctor (J.D.)
 John McCain:
 United States Naval Academy - Class rank: 894 of 899
 Sarah Palin:
 Hawaii Pacific University - 1 semester
 North Idaho College - 2 semesters - general study
 University of Idaho - 2 semesters - journalism
 Matanuska-Susitna College - 1 semester
 University of Idaho - 3 semesters - B.A. in Journalism
 Education isn't everything, but this is about the two highest offices in
 the land as well as our standing in the e world. You make the call.
 There has to be a reason that, in spite of the above, we are where we are today.
 Of course, there is a generous dosage of country-wide stupidity too.

Green is good for Marketing & Your home

We just wrote these blogs recently in our SEO Blog templates blog, enjoy:

Green is a wonderful marketing word
Have you ever noticed that consumer behavior favors Green products? As it should, and you should use it in your marketing, but only if it is appropriate. Otherwise the green backlash can be very costly. We are lucky to have launched a sister site last year called, the site sells energy saving heaters that are better for the environment. We actually get more traffic on heater related keywords than anyother subject at the moment. So this blog is really powered by the heaters and so we decided to do some shameless self promotion today. We are too busy working on our day jobs so here is the FAQ from the heaters site. Reading this will probably save you money on your heating bills this winter.
Q. What is a ComfortZone™ Heating System?
A. The ComfortZone™ quartz infrared heater is a revolutionary portable furnace that safely and efficiently heats the objects in a room using infrared waves as opposed to less efficient systems that use radiant or solar radiation.
Q. How does the initial cost and savings compare to other heaters?
A. ComfortZone™ quartz infrared heaters utilize new, more efficient technology for generating large amounts of infrared heat. Built with yesterday’s quality using tomorrow’sinfrared and solid state electronic technology. ComfortZone heaters incorporate great styling, with micro-electronic genius. To invest in similar technology that would heat a comparable area could easily cost twice the initial investment without delivering the exclusive features and safe healthy benefits in this 3rd generation portable furnace. The energy savings each month will usually pay for the cost of the heater in less than a few months.
Q. How does the ComfortZone™ Portable Heater Work?
A. The Comfort zone combines new advanced engineering with the latest in infrared commercial quartz tubes. Both technoloigies were developed by Well Electronics for the Comfort Zone heaters. The new heat exchanger incorporates a copper-ionization panel for efficient ionization of the water molecules in the air. These water molecules act as a carrier for the infrared heat that is expelled into the room. Ionized water molecules distribute the heat more evenly in the room than do the air molecules which is why you eliminate most cold air pockets in a room by using moist infrared heat. It is a warmer softer heat that penetrates the body more effectively than radiant heat. three solar copper furnaces inside the unit absorb the heat from these tubes much like a sponge absorbs water. The patent pending process also utilizes stainless steel diffusion coils and special infrared tubes with ceramic and stainless steel tips. In independent tests the combination of stainless steel diffusion coils interacting with the copper ionization panels in the new heat exchanger produced a 14% increase in heat output / efficiency. The Comfortzone heaters exhales what is coined as “soft” environmentally friendly heat that employs the humidity in the room as a vehicle to warm up large spaces quickly and efficiently. Conventional heat sources that dry the air cause occupants to lose energy and force them to breathe dryuncomfortable air.
Q. Where is the ComfortZone™ Portable Zone Heaters most often used?
A. Cold uncomfortable areas in your home, finished basements, that cold back bedroom, that office down the hall, mobile homes, etc. It can also be used as an energy saving source of comfortable heat when employed as a substitute for other heat sources in the home. It’s a better cheaper way to heat your home.
Q. What makes the ComfortZone™ Heater “Healthier” than other heaters?
A. For one… the ComfortZone™ does not use up oxygen or dry out the air, nor does it produce positive ions like other blower type heaters. And the ComfortZone™ does not destroy healthy negative ions… it actually produces them. Since the early 1950s scientists have suspected that ions play an important role in how the body functions and, consequently, in how we feel. Research has shown that an abundance of negative ions in the air we breathe is highly beneficial. Conversely, scientists have found that if the air is charged with too few negative ions and too many positives, we become anxious, fatigued and tense. Positive ion poisoning has, in fact, been linked to heart attacks, aggravated asthma, migraine headaches, insomnia, rheumatism, arthritis, hay fever, and most allergies.Two . . . the internal temperatures inside the furnace destroy harmful biological pathogens including bacteria, virus, mold and mildew without creating a combustion cycle like other fossil-fueled space heaters and radiant/solar coil type electrical heaters. These types of heaters use up oxygen and they remove humidity from the air.
Q. What makes the ComfortZone™ Heating System different?
A. There are three major types of heat.The first, is radiant heat. Radiant heat can be generated utilizing combustion or the burning of a fossil fuel, i.e. natural gas, wood, oil, etc. It can also be generated using electrical current to heat a coil, as in a base-board heater, or to heat different liquids such as oil in a portable radiator. Radiant heat is a very long wave form that can actually be seen radiating off the earths surface in a mirage or off the top of a wall radiator. It is a very long wave pattern.The second, is solar radiation. Solar radiation is a very short wave pattern that includes all hose wavelengths in the light spectrum that are both harmful and beneficial. Solar radiation is responsible for you’re the burn you get by sitting to close to a fire or disc heater or by sitting out in the sun too long. Ultraviolet radiation falls into this solar radiation spectrum. Solar radiation has a very short wve pattern that cannot be detected by the human eye. Ultraviolet Radiation, for example, is a type of solar radiation and the wave pattern varies from approximately 180 nanometers to 270 nanometers.A third form of radiation is Infrared radiation. It is the safest and most effective type of radiation to use for warming up the objects in a room including the human body. The ComfortZone™ Heating System uses safe infrared radiation to efficiently convert electrical power into therapeutic infrared heat. Infrared heat is by far the most economical type of heat for zone or area heating. Infrared waves vary from 5 to 14 microns which is is much much longer than solar radiation but much much shorter than radiant heat waves. Infrared radiation is the perfect wave form for the most efficient heating systems. Infrared heat is also the most therapeutic type of heat which is why it is used universally for all medical applications requiring heat applications as well as the preferred heat type in most saunas. Infrared Saunas produce the same infrared wave that the ComfortZone heaters produce.
Q. How does the comfort of ComfortZone™ furnace compare to other systems?
A. The ComfortZone™ furnace is a state of the art system that provides the most comfortable form of heat. Unlike traditional systems, which may leave a differential of up to 18 degrees from floor to ceiling, the ComfortZone™ infrared furnace produces infrared heat that does not concentrate near the ceiling. Heat is evenly distributed from floor to ceiling throughout the room. The even heating and higher humidity permit lower heat settings with more comfort, less condensation on windows and less static electricity.In actual studies, photos using infrared lighting demonstrated that the heat was almost perfectly even from floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall. The ComfortZone™ Quartz Infrared heaters efficiency is based on the distribution of energized air, not on just fan movement. This heat is coined as “soft heat” due to how comfortable it is.
Q. Economically, how does the ComfortZone™ furnace compare to other systems?
A. The ComfortZone™ furnace is the most economical way to heat. The ComfortZone™ furnace uses an average of 35% less energy than conventional electric furnace/baseboard systems. Even more impressive results were found during comparisons with fuel based heating systems. Individual results, of course, depend on insulation values, local climate, and other conditions.
Q. How much area does a ComfortZone™ Heating System heat and at what cost?
A. The ComfortZone™ Heating System unit, is an excellent source of primary heat for up to 1000 square feet and a superb source of secondary heat for over 1200 square feet. Price per unit varies from $397.00 to $449 US Dollars. Plus… FREE SHIPPING.
Q. Why does the ComfortZone™ quartz infrared furnace cost more than a space heater?
A. It is a furnace in every respect. It has a miniature heat exchanger, miniature infrared heating coils or tubes, a solid-state electronic control system, high and low limit switches to regulate temperature and air flow, a stylish cabinet, a sensitive solid-state thermostat with high voltage relays for turning the infrared tubes on and off and a dual DC fan system to eliminate harmful electromagnetic radiation that is produced by AC fans. It is a revolutionary “Green technology” product in every respect that produces high-quality infrared heat at a fraction of the price of conventional portable heaters. A space heater only has the capacity to heat a small space because the heat stays where it was generated. The ComfortZone™ furnace, like a central heating system, will heat an entire area evenly and efficiently because the heat spreads rapidly through the entire room. Leave the door aopen and the heat will spread into the adjoining room as well. That’s whats so neat about infrared heat. Furthermore, the ComfortZone™ furnace is safe. It will not start a fire or burn you if you get to close to it. (Personal note: I like to sit in front of my unit when I come in form the cold because it warms me up fast – Bruce Searle). Because of the reduced energy consumption, and the unit’s high level of safety and comfort, ComfortZone™ users agree that it is the best value available.
Q. Is the ComfortZone™ Heating System safe?
A. The ComfortZone™ Heating System has no flame or fumes. Its safe, clean infrared heating elements provide the energy. Extensive TUV-US testing has verified the safety of the ComfortZone™furnace.
Q. How long has the ComfortZone™ furnace been around?
A. The ComfortZone™ furnace is new for 2008. It was developed by Well Electronics, an ISO 9000 manufacturer who is an oem supplier to many fortune 500 companies. Well Electronics produced over 120,000 for the US market last year. Well Electronics wanted to introduce their own innovative technology into the US market this year. Tens of thousands of Well quartz infrared heaters are marketed and sold worldwide each year.
Q. Why doesn’t the heat from the ComfortZone™ Heating System rise like conventional heating systems?
A. Because the infrared wave is shorter than radiant heat waves. Now, combine this short wave with an ionizing heat exchanger and what you have is an infrared wave that spreads more quickly and penetrates more thoroughly giving you a more even heat distribution from floor to ceiling. The ComfortZone™ heaters heat an area evenly, keeping heat down where you and your family live.
Q. What kind of warranty does it have?
A. The ComfortZone™ Heaters have an extended 3 year factory warranty which includes the heating elements. The unit has no moving parts except the fan. The heater has rouble free solid-state controls and diagnostic analysis of any problem can be analized over the telephone with our technical support team through customer service.
Q. How much power does the ComfortZone™ furnace draw?
A. The ComfortZone™ Furnace uses 1500 watts. That is less than some coffee makers!
Q. How do I order the ComfortZone™ Heaters?
A. Your in the right place. Go to or email
