We have a similar situation with the outdoor heat exchanger for our air
compressor at work. (150 HP). During the hot weather it was getting
marginal and causing compressor shutdown. So, some brilliant guy set up a
lawn sprinkler under it. Cooled it down quite a bit, but with too much
force, it also bent some of the fins reducing air flow. It is better now,
after somebody laid under it and straightened fins for a few hours.
So, considering all this information, which is intuitive, I wonder why HVAC
companies don't either sell (and make money on) or recommend at least a
cover mounted a few feet over the top of AC units, or least a section of
fence or something on the sunniest side.
Great translation by an incompetent probably.
They do "produce" heat. In the winter, I'm less careful about turning
lights off that are not being used. The light does convert to heat energy,
so it will in turn heat the house and not be wasted. Of course this was

AC people like to argue about the effect of shade,
focusing only on air temperatures. Apparently
they never stood outside in the boiling sun or
compared temperatures in houses that were fully
illuminated by the sun with house that were shaded
You know there is no such thing as Light.. There is just the absence of
Universal Theory of Dark
For years it has been believed that electric bulbs emitted light. However,
recent information has proven otherwise. Electric bulbs don't emit light,
they suck dark.
Thus we call these bulbs dark suckers. The dark sucker theory proves the
existence of dark, that dark has mass heavier than that of light, and that
dark is faster than light.
The basis of the dark sucker theory is that electric bulbs suck dark. Take
for example, the dark suckers in the room where you are. There is less dark
right next to them than there is elsewhere.
The larger the dark sucker, the greater its capacity to suck dark. Dark
suckers in a parking lot have a much greater capacity than the ones in this
As with all things, dark suckers don't last forever. Once they are full of
dark, they can no longer suck. This is proven by the black spot on a full
A candle is a primitive dark sucker. A new candle has a white wick. You will
notice that after the first use, the wick turns black, representing all the
dark which has been sucked into it.
If you hold a pencil next to the wick of an operating candle, the tip will
turn black because it got in the way of the dark flowing into the candle.
Unfortunately, these primitive dark suckers have a very limited range.
There are also portable dark suckers. The bulbs in these can't handle all of
the dark by themselves, and must be aided by a dark storage unit. When the
dark storage unit is full, it must be either emptied or replaced before the
portable dark sucker can operate again.
Dark has mass. When dark goes into a dark sucker, friction from this mass
generates heat. Thus it is not wise to touch an operating dark sucker.
Candles present a special problem, as the dark must travel into the solid
wick instead of through glass. This generates a great amount of heat. Thus
it can be very dangerous to touch an operating candle.
Dark is also heavier than light. If you swim just below the surface of a
lake, you will see a lot of light. If you swim deeper and deeper, you notice
it gets slowly darker and darker.
When you reach a depth of approximatley fifty feet, you are in total
darkness. This is because the heavier dark sinks to the bottom of the lake
and the lighter light floats to the top.
The immense power of dark can be utilized to man's advantage. We can collect
the dark that has settled to the bottom of lakes and push it through
turbines, which generates electricity and helps push dark to the ocean,
where it may be safely stored.
Prior to turbines, it was it was much more difficult to get dark from the
rivers and lakes to the ocean. The indians recognized this problem, and
tried to solve it.
When on a river in a canoe travelling in the same direction as the flow of
dark, they paddled slowly, so as not to stop the flow of dark; but when they
travelled against the flow of dark, they paddled quickly so as to help push
the dark along its way.
Finally, we must prove that dark is faster than light. If you were to stand
in an illuminated room in front of a closed, dark closet, then slowly open
the closet door, you would see the light slowly enter the closet; but since
the dark is so fast, you would not be able to see the dark leave the closet.
In conclusion, I would like to say that dark suckers make all our lives much
easier. So the next time you look at an electric bulb remember that it is
indeed a dark sucker.
