• How do you get rid of woodpeckers?

    Okay, there is always this stupid, annoying woodpecker that is always pecking on my house, outside my bedroom. my dad has tried covering the holes it makes with metal, but the bird just finds another part to peck. How do you get rid of them. I am worried he will peck into my bedroom at some point.

  • Cost to run electricity to middle of commercial space?

    I am considering investing in a franchise. I just learned that there are 3 locations in the commercial space that will require electricity in the middle of the room.

    I am considering investing in a franchise. I just learned that there are 3 locations in the commercial space that will require electricity in the middle of the room. They want the wires to be ran under the carpet (using carpet tiles). I've did some research and learned that the 2 options are either using FCC (flat wire) or cutting into the ground. The current space has hardwood on top of concrete. I know you will not be able to give me real numbers, but what kind of pricing should I be looking for? Space is maybe 20 feet wide, 50 feet deep. I guess they would have to get the power running from the walls to the center of the room? Maybe 10 feet? Just trying to get my head around pricing before I decide to invest. This is the only thing I'm clueless about and if it's going to cost a million dollars, I'll opt out.

    Tent help?

    I'm ordering this tent to camp. It's exactly what I'm looking for EXCEPT the "porch" does not have flaps to cover it if it rains. Any solutions?

    I'm ordering this tent to camp. It's exactly what I'm looking for EXCEPT the "porch" does not have flaps to cover it if it rains. Any solutions? I was thinking using metal clasps/snap button things (sorry idk how to explain it much better) & cutting it to fit the screens individually so you can attach & unattach them. Maybe there are other, easier solutions I couldn't think of. The tent is in my price range & otherwise is exactly what I'm looking for so please don't suggest I buy a different one. I've looked for a long time with no luck.

  • No water coming out on the hot water side?

    So an odd plumbing problem. If I turn on the bathtub's hot faucet on the far side of the house (furthest away from the water heater) and then turn on the sink. The water eventually stops coming out. Totally, completely stops for the entire house. No water at all coming out of the hot side. I then go to the sink... show more
    So an odd plumbing problem. If I turn on the bathtub's hot faucet on the far side of the house (furthest away from the water heater) and then turn on the sink. The water eventually stops coming out. Totally, completely stops for the entire house. No water at all coming out of the hot side. I then go to the sink closest to the water heater and turn the hot side on. Nothing comes out, but after a minute or so, I hear like a bang in the water heater and the water starts flowing again normally. I've tried draining the water heating thinking it may be a sediment issue, but the water coming out of the drain is clear. And the water heater works. The water is hot. This issue only effects the hot water side. The cold water side has no problem with pressure or consistency. I'm probably going to have to call a plumber. But I am wondering if anyone knows what this could be?

  • Propane gas level?

    Best answer: Do you need it for anything else (stove, oven, hot water heater) that needs propane? If not just turn off the HVAC and use an electric space heater and fill it when it gets cheaper in the summer.

  • Ductless Mini split; I have a leak on the inside coil,Replacement question?

    I found the leak on the inside wall mount unit- I found the same BTU system from the same manufacturer (Pioneer) - The model is "newer" - Will I be able to ONLY change out the inside wall unit? I assume they are compatible like a typical heat pump/ air handler setup?

  • Homelite gas string trimmer won't draw fuel?

    Best answer: you probably only have to get it started once and after that, it'll be fine. take the spark plug out, squirt an eyedropper of fuel directly into it [or spray carb cleaner], put spark plug back in and give 'er a few good yanks.
