    Is it ok to install central AC at around 50 degrees?

    Installer say its not a big problem but I'd like to know more opinions.   Thanks for your background info.   I think its more of issue with refrigerant pressure since its dependent on temperature.

    How is rent calculated as income tax in USA?

    How is rent calculated as income tax in USA?

When I looked at different income tax brackets like 10% for $0-8475, does the amount mean purely my collected rent or collected...
