    White Powder residual from a Gas furnace???

    White powder residual from gas furnace is basically happen due to the high humidity level.
  5. RTUs? They're rooftop package units.

    At first glance on my phone, the RTUs looked like zambonis on an ice rink. Or, maybe I spent too much time in the sun today.

    ISO Class III...???

    I'm assuming this inspection was a loss control survey for an underwriter. A building inspection would identify type, not insurance class. After the '08 crash, I did alot of work for commercial insurers for 2 years. If you confirmed the steel wall framing, you might be able to consider it mixed construction and then try to apply the 2/3 rule. Cold-rolled, light-gauge framing supporting loads however, is more likely to be class 1. Where there any interior load bearing walls? Unprotected light gauge steel is Class 1

    ISO Class III...???

    hello again... In my travels this week, I inspected a building that had: Steel Roof Trusses Metal Stud Exterior Walls, sheetrocked on the inside; & sided w/ T1-11 wood panels on the exterior (at least I believe they were metal studs...looked like 2X6 nominal...maybe cold-formed load bearing exterior wall metal studs?) The building was constructed in the 1990's (according to the insured). Is this an ISO Class III (light non-combustible)...???...or is it ISO Class I simply because it's frame construction? (reason I'm asking is...I've never come across steel roof trusses on a frame building) thanx, MF

    I'm not being sarcastic John. I really think she is a performance artist. She is trying to show us something about self expression.☺️

    What if I told you that gal is my sister? How would that make you feel? Or maybe I wouldn't tell you, just put a hex on you that keeps you up all night, wondering whose sister she is? 😅
  14. Dennis, you might want to check the dates on the posts you're responding to.

    Sorry Marc, it's just the bright shiny shell of the hard nut of reality, but, no worry, with the right approach anyone can crack it, ergo, the clogger.

    Need hot water quicker!

    Installing small tank-less unit would also be the best option. It will help you get desired quantity of hot water without any delay.

    Raised stair nosing

    Consider the installation has the same effect as slope and 3/8" on that 10-inch tread would exceed 2%. Regardless of whether it's compliant, it's a shit-ass set-up. What did the installation do to the nosing?

    Wiring Puzzle

    2011. As I recall, it was added because of all these "smart" gizmos that might need a neutral at the switch location.

    404.2(C) is a new one, right? Which cycle?

    Do you suppose crane flies have a special kink about doing it on a condenser coil?

    Wiring Puzzle

    I see how that could work. But if that's what's going on, whoever did it must be cognitively impaired. It would also violate 404.2(C) (neutrals have to run to switches)

    Raised stair nosing

    If it's installed on every step, then the risers will all be the same height (assuming that the carriages are cut properly). What's on the line about it?

    Looks like something out of Twin Peaks.
