I can see your point of view.
I think that a post that endeavors to solicit help or advice needs to be very clear.
Because the poster is asking for help from people donating their time. it is the responsibility of the soliciting poster to be clear & forthcoming with the details surrounding their request.
Further more they are getting free advice, often from people who normally sell this advice. So the soliciting poster needs to behave in a deferential & respectful manner.
A post (or posts) that is mere comment or commentary can be more informal / less structured.
Seems reasonable to me.

When some people read threads they only check back with the specific line they were on. I posted a short sentence telling them it's there, instead of posting the whole thing. Sorry that annoys you...

Did they fixed it?
What did they say was the problem?
-- Moe Jones HVAC Service Technician Energy Equalizers Inc. Houston, Texas www.EnergyEqualizers.com
Maintenance fixed the A/C only a month ago when it completely quit working. Our electric bill that month was $320 for a 800 sq ft apartment.
Maintenance is coming tomorrow. How do I make sure they fix the unit right, or make the landlord replace it if it won't work properly? The electric bill is outragous.

Generally speaking, you can save / spend about 2% for each degree, although that can vary significantly depending on the indoor / outdoor difference and the efficiency of your unit..

http://www.progress-energy.com/custservice/carres/billtoolkit/step1.asp - "Most people can be comfortable with a setting of 78-80 degrees Fahrenheit, plus you'll save 7 percent to 10 percent of your cooling costs for each degree above 78."
That seems a bit high vs. other sources I've read, but again, a lot depends on where you live, etc.
When I lived in Charlotte, 76-78 was fine for us during the summer. Now that I'm in RI, 74F is on the warm side.
I'd be curious to hear what someone in Phoenix might find comfortable at this time of the year.

The power companies website (Progress Energy, NC) says there's a 10% increase in cooling costs per degree above a 78 deg setting.

Well, I thought if I knew the name of a couple certifications I could mention them. Just searched Google - found EPA Section 608 Certification, NEMI - TABB certification, NATE, and HVAC Excellence.
