I need to get a government grant to do some research. It's like free money.
"There is sufficient evidence that falling ice is physically harmful and measures should be taken to ensure that the public is not likely to encounter such ice."
"Effective public participation in and direct benefits from wind energy projects (such as receiving electricity from the neighboring wind turbines) have been shown to result in less annoyance in general and better public acceptance overall."
So if you build a wind turbine, people will be mad. If you pay them or give them free/cheap electricity, they will be less mad.
Im trying to install a new light fixture in the front hall. Current light is activated by 2 switches (on each end of hall). The NEW fixture has 1 black wire and 1 white wire. The ceiling wires have 2 black and 2 white coming down. The OLD single light has the 2 wires connected separately by a lit...
and then I don't know what that one is about other than to show you multiple lights I guess
The problem with a lot of those questions is that people don't stop and think before
Like the contractor we had for the kitchen, he screwed up the 3-way for the overhead lights, so that it was switch 1 controlled the whole circuit and then switch 2 only switched them on and off if switch 1 was on
Since the red wire is already being used for the outlets, you'll need to run a pair of 3 wire cables from the existing switch box to the location in the garage where you want these light switches.
This is what you'll likely have to do:
Here are some other options:
@Aaron What do you mean, this isn't clear to everybody?

For >1" fittings, tape is just hard to apply. If you're threading them on really far the tape may be stretched and pulled out of position too much, while dope will spread and have better coverage
And on the "after the valve" stuff like you said, like shower heads, those things WILL be removed (to clean/change) every few years, and tape can be cleaned off, while it's practically impossible to remove dope
For threaded plumbing connections, you typically use pipe dope or thread tape (aka teflon tape). Are there situations when one is preferred over another? Does the size of the pipe, type of pipe, parting being connected, or other variable make a difference in the selection?
Note, this assumes you...
and I also have a light on the keypad that turns on when my garage door is open, and I can press it to open/close the door. Very handy 1) at night to see if I left the door open, and 2) right beside my front door, so I can open the garage without using the stupid code thing outside
I ended up just running vent right up to the hole where my attic fan sits up at the top of the roof. When the fan spins it blows the steamy air out, and when it doesn't it is cold enough that the steamy air just rises out of the hole
Also, humidity sensing fans: do I really need to put in a switch in the bathroom, or just hotwire it and let it ride (and maybe install a switch in a box in the attic if I feel adventurous and need to turn it "off off" for some reason?
I really don't want to rip up the wall though - it's going to be enough trouble with the ceiling and I think there's already a power line there - the same one I think that feeds the attic power fan so it's a lot easier to just tap into that instead of running down the wall, putting in a switch, etc. etc

@shirlockhomes the other problem with that is that I've got plywood nailed down all across the joists for storage area and it is a bitch and a half to pull up those sheets to look under them, and I don't know if the bathroom wall that has the light switch for the vanity lights is under that sheet or a different sheet
@shirlockhomes under? you mean like in the ceiling right next to it? not sure what you mean
they hired half of the shuttle folks so he didn't get a job there. He is at FactSet Research right now. Talking with JPL as we speak... one position available at Cal Tech imaging center... see what happens
@ChrisCudmore I agree on the silent part, but I'm concerned because of the flex tubing in the attic that it will need more push to get the air out (bends, etc) so I'd rather go over than under, and even 1.3 sones rates quiet
