Hence the NEC cap on the number of disconnects on a strucutre at 6. You must be able to cut power from a service with a max of 6 throws. You don't have to search.
Oh, based on where the outside...
Call your town. Anyone outside your town won't have exact info.
Each state / county / town has different (And sometime opposite) rules.
Example: In Elmhurt, IL you can't patch drywall unless...
Unless your gas company is a blitering bunch of idiots they bought futures contracts for the expected consumption of you and everyone else who signed up in May and locked their price in also. This is...
No. The contractor I used got about 80% done with the job and went bankrupt. And before someone chimes in, no I didn't take the low bid I took one of the higher ones. He had cash flow issues with the...
My physic powers tell me UMS visited this morning.
FWIW, I live about 1/2 way between Seattle and Everett in a forest. We ran the AC for 36 minutes this summer the one day I forgot to close some upstairs windows. Just needed to knock a few degrees...
Keep looking. There are some Seattle area contractors who will do the load calc, but it takes some effort to find them. But don't settle if you only get one calc, just don't count bids that won't do...
The hydrant pack doesn't usually contain an ax, and by the time you see this the truck's 500' down the street.
We'd pull the disconnect and start kicking. It would collapse enough to spin the...

The words of a man who gets the dealer to change his wiper blades.
I think you've found the attitude that causes people to not call for techs, the one called arrogance.
Perhaps the reason DIY...
Heck, my 5 year old Grand Prix does this. Averages about 5K between changes. We'll see in about 5 more years how well this works.
So, correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure it was US Air that went into CH11 twice, UAL's been there for 3 years straight.
As for blaming management for the pension problem, last time I...

Ahhh. Urban cow tipping. See it all the time.
It's the labor that drives the cost up. Not the pipe. I can't believe someone from the HVAC industry didn't know that one.
Northern IL is a bit nutty with building restrictions. Elmhurst is code...
Nice lawnmower collection. Is that razor wire?
I had to think about this a bit.
Its easy to say price isn't a factor, but that would be a line of BS. Its also easy to say value and mean the intersection of enough quality and low enough price,...

Ahhh yes. That would be exactly what I meant. I'll call three, and schedule replacements if necessary.
Duc Dog, well... I'm just going to assume that's internet anonymity talking.

I'm not sure it has anything to do with respect for other peoples time. Many of the bidders sure as anything didn't respect my time.
I spent some time this morning trying to think of anything...

Keep in mind an educated customer may have trouble getting good bids.
It took me 12 estimates to get 3 that would do a ManJ and ManD. On a house with electric baseboard, so no equipment to...
Wow. I think this scares me as much as the guy who raised his bid 25% when I mentioned I wanted permits filed.

Yeah, but when the wrong answers get posted, you can't resist either A) correcting the bad info, or B) Arguing about whose right.
In all honesty, I havne't seen that many questions that I'd call...
Yes. Buy the 30 day version. You can do 4600 sqft in 2 hours while towing a 16 month "helper" around. Or 30 minutes alone.
Otherwise, call your power company and ask for conversation assistance....
I'm with that idea. Its amazing the action a letter to the correct manager will get. I've found that Lowes managers become more responsive when their disrict boss gets involved. No one wants to...

Its a long and complex story, but the short factors:
1) NG was so cheap exploration was pretty much stopped, just wasn't worth it. Wells do not come online overnight.
2) The only electric power...
Ok, they got done over a week ago, but I've been busy.
I know my installer posts / reads here, so...
