Posted in thread: Adding breakers to panel on 12-19-2013 at 05:05 PM
Yes, it is only 100amp service. I'm not looking to add any high-load devices, but would like to
add some outlets around the house as I remodel my way through it. I'd like to reroute and/or
Posted in thread: Adding breakers to panel on 12-16-2013 at 04:48 PM
Just re-read my post and realized I misspoke when referring to the "central bar" in the panel
as the "neutral". It's actually the hot legs that the breakers connect to that I'm referring
to, and I'm g...

I'm just beginning to look the situation over in preparation for some electrical work and would
like to add two or three more circuits through my panel. From the outside of the box it
appeared that it...
Posted in thread: Converting type of register on 08-13-2013 at 03:26 PM
There are a total of five of these throughout the house in various rooms. Since the house had a
high-efficiency furnace and central air when I bought it in 2000 (and still has the same
system), I'm ce...
Posted in thread: Converting type of register on 08-12-2013 at 06:26 PM
My house was supposedly built circa 1945 (it's concrete block on a slab) and I'm guessing that
the furnace/ac registers in the walls are of an earlier style that may be outdated. (I've

Posted in thread: Insulating Concrete Block on 07-07-2012 at 03:49 PM
My house being concrete block and horribly lacking in insulation, I've been researching this
site and elsewhere on the subject. After going over a fair amount of material I've come to a
couple of conc...
Posted in thread: Feed to Separate Building on 02-28-2011 at 05:54 PM
I'm sure this can't be right, but I've discovered that the feed to my detached garage comes
from a 220v 50amp breaker in the main panel in the house. The current is carried by a 10-3 NM
cable across t...
Posted in thread: Ceiling or walls...which first? on 01-05-2010 at 12:10 PM
Guess I never really gave this much thought before, but when doing a full remodel is it normal
to do the ceiling first and then the walls? I'm looking at a redo in my laundry room, which has

I don't know what the typical range is of a TV remote, but my closest neighbor is across the
street. Also, my TV is in a corner of the room which places the back of the TV towards all
neighbors and bo...

This is getting frustrating. We have a 42" Samsung LCD flatscreen TV that's not quite a year
old. From time to time the darn thing will just simply change the channel all by itself. Last
night we're t...
