  • Am I able to upgrade my thermostat?

    Am I able to upgrade my thermostat?

    This is the thermostat I currently have for my wall heater (see picture). Just wondering if it can be replaced with a digital one, like the programmable Honey Well brands? All wall heaters seem to have this basic manual type thermostat.

    Best answer: Anybody with a headache that doesn't go away with fresh air should get hospital treatment.

    Open exterior garage door, keep door between garage and house closed.

    Open one window in every room, open interior doors, turn on central furnace fan if furnace doesn't start.

    It should only take 5 to 10 minutes to ventilate, but the fire department usually waits 30 minutes.

    Maybe for future get a CO detector, they are only $15 http://amzn.to/2yMXaDL

  • Why my lights keep flickering or dimming.?

    So in the past few days I’ve noticed the lights flicker a lot or dim dramatically then go back to normal over and over. Sometimes even a fan that’s on will turn off then you hear a buzz in the walls for 10-20 seconds then the fan comes back on, is this something to worry about?

  • Do you let your faucets drip in freezing temps?

    Everyone I know in the south lets their faucets drip in freezing temps. But I've heard you're only suppose to do that if you have exposed pipes. My bf use to live up north and he said they've never done that. So which is it? Let them drip, don't have to, or are there other factors to consider?
