    I'm helping a friend convert a garage into a studio apartment. Part of this job is installing a DIY ductless HVAC unit. Because the space is small and well insulated, we have chosen a the 12kBTU unit, which requires a 20A 120V circuit (actually "115V, 15A disconnect, 20A breaker") . I need to...

    Hello, I hooked up a new thermostat which required the usage of a Common wire. Being the idiot that I am, I removed the whole house humidifier wiring (Honeywell HE120) from my furnace (Lennox Airflow 92AF1UHxyz) and didn't take a photo about two years ago. <face palm> I posted on here then and...

    While drilling a hole into my bedroom wall to hang a framed portrait, I accidentally drilled a little too far and pulled out some insulation. Not a lot, about a dime sized amount. It's interior drywall and now the hole is plugged with an anchor & screw. I assume this isn't something to worry...

    Hello, I purchased an air scrubber as the one shown here https://library.coburns.com/specs/ACTIVTEK_9960009.PDF The installation per se is rather easy, but complicated by the extremely compact size of the system in my apartment. The info in the pdf says to mount the air scrubber past the air...

    I am remodeling a 1985 bathroom. The old vanity had a hollow base which had a tie kick plate on the front routed back to the in floor ductwork. Our intention is to put in a new vanity without a closed in base. Therefore the duct becomes visible. There is a 90deg duct, but the lower edge of this...

    Wife and I just purchased a home and moved in on the 23rd of December. We noticed a stank coming from the ac vents but choked it up to a stagnet unoccupied home in Florida. Boy were we wrong! We traced the smell to the entry way closet where the previous owners stored a very neglected litter box...

    I have a ranch home with a full finished basement. I saw what looked like a tail sticking out of the wall register which is at floor level. We removed the register to find what looked like a family of dead mice!! Sooo not cool. There were approximately 7 deceased critters. Clean-up has been...

    Hi, A couple years ago, I bought some magnet air vent covers but they didn’t work well. I had put them inside of my vent instead (I know...

    I changed my thermostat wiring from 18 /4 to 18 /5 to provide a common wire. I took pictures of the thermostat and Furnace control board so I could rewire with no issues. After everything was wired, I tested the thermostat. AC works fine as does the fan. However, I cannot get the heat to turn...
