"I feel I have already benefited greatly by joining recently. Having read the Consumer articles, I rang and spoke to George in your technical department. Most helpful and I have now chosen my home ventilation system – such a relief!"

Christine L.

"Today we visited The Warehouse and, following your advice, purchased a heater. The icing on the cake was its price, $49! Thanks as usual for all the good advice."
