  • Currently replacing/updating light switches with decora and dimmers. I may have to have an HVAC study done because the registers in place just don't seem to be sufficient. Tips appreciated! Currently replacing all door hardware, which will include hinges. Is that wise?

    Thanks, Frodo. I appreciate your thoroughness, but just to be sure, can a handle that you
    “lever” up and then turn to adjust the temp replace my fixture? I have my eye on

    If you don't want to read the story, scroll down to "Repair Question." I like telling my
