  1. I thought of grabbing my magnet but my tool box was at the other end of the crawlspace, and I was too lazy to go get it.
  2. Is it worth noting – and/or recommending action – when the SEC has an amp capacity of 90 with a 100 amp main disconnect? In this case, #2 AL, THW.
  3. The main runs of this boiler piping is silver. What material is this???
  4. Thanks. I should have Googled first. I thought cleaning from the registers would be easier.
  5. I often see these black plugs on HVAC ducts. What are they for?

Don't mess with something that is working. Assuming this, clean the gable vents and blow in a minimum of 14 inch cellulose insulation across the attic floor. This will keep a naturally hot attic from radiating down through the ceiling in summer making the AC work harder, and help keep warm air from rising into the attic in winter. I think that's all you want. Trying to get balanced heating and cooling with a one z
  12. There is a full time operator. Watch your step please.
