At Solar Nova Scotia I make this argument on a regular basis, George.  
I don't expect anyone else to get it :-)

When people are arguing about the efficiency of the blowers moving  
air around their house, I ask them where the wasted energy from an  
inefficient blower goes.

The consensus seems to be, "away."

Laws of thermodynamics?? We don't need no stinkin' laws.
