Hey Ed, Why Is Manual S® Your Favorite Manual?

In this edition of "Hey Ed", Ed discusses why Manual S® is his favorite manual

Hey Ed, why is manual S your favorite manual? Cause my name is in it. The full reason in actually manual S is my favorite manual because it's the ignored one. It’s manual S, it’s for shame because nobody buys it. Statistically, we know it doesn't get 80% of the purchases that other manuals do, and the sad part, it might be the most important book in the series. We don't select equipment based off of tons, we have to look at the sensible gain, the latent gain, and the total gain and the rules per manual S are meet the sensible, meet the latent, don't exceed the total by 15, 20 or 30% and you will have a piece of equipment that will give you those predictable results. It’s gonna do a pretty good job when it's really hot out at maintaining temperature but it's gonna do a job of maintaining humidity throughout the summer season and that's the way I see it.
