    Watch your wires!

    This is what happens when a rookie (or any) tech shoots a screw through the black wire leading to the 80V ignitor on an Intellignition board. An expensive lesson

    That's better than an apprentice shooting a 5/16 self tapper into a hot water reheat coil U-bend in a VAV box on the 13th floor of a hospital lab complex, on a Friday, with a plumber that never pressure tested the lines and turned the water on and left....

    LMAO, RIGHT NOW!!!
    Which makes more sense to you?
    CONSERVATION - turning your thermostat back and being uncomfortable. Maybe saving 5-10%
    ENERGY EFFICIENCY - leaving your thermostat where everyone is comfortable. Saving 30-70%

    DO THE NUMBERS! Step on a HOMESCALE.
    What is comfort? Well, it AIN'T just TEMPERATURE!

    Energy Obese? An audit is the next step - go to BPI.org, or RESNET, and find an auditor near you.

    No, that was me as a second year sheetmetal apprentice in NY. That was my "biggest mistake" ever. It cost an untold amount of insurance money.

    That water leaked from Friday afternoon until Monday morning, down 13 floors, through doctors labs, ruining god knows how much lab equipment, computers, and experiments.

    It was one hell of an eye opening experience.
