  • My neighbor just snow blew my driveway what is the proper neighborly course of action?

    Im 28 he's mid to late 40s. Usually I actually enjoy doing it by hand but do to our crazy winters and my lack of a super-short short driveway i decided to buy a snowblower this year. I assume he thought I was just to busy with school to go out and shovel it, and didn't know I had a snow blower yet.

Please help! I'm panicking.

  • Does it make any sense to use a filter in your home RETURN air ducts?

    Would that block the air or would it help to prevent dust? Currently I just use the furnace filter as directed by the HVAC company.

    I am concerned because when I bought this (foreclosed) home it had plumbing damage due to frozen pipes. But I think this happened while the heat was off. I have lived here for about 3 years with no issues so far. When it gets cold (single digits and below) my strategy has been to remove the access panel to the crawl space and open vanity/cabinet doors to let heat flow into these areas. If I have had no issues so far (and have had several periods of multiple days hovering around zero (F), then do you think I am safe as long as I do my current strategy while traveling? Any other tips?? (I keep thinking about insulating them, just haven't got to it yet.)

    Shortly after moving in we had a rain storm and noticed our roof was leaking you can even see bubbles in the ceiling paint. We notified our landlord and he hasn’t fixed the problem we come home and notice the bubbling has gotten worse and our coffee table had water spots on it. There is an attic above us so the water has been leaking through the roof and gotten bad enough to leak through the floor of the attic. We aren’t sure how to handle the issue if he won’t fix it.

  • Can a small child's knit glove do this to a toilet?

    A small kid's knit glove was accidentally flushed down an upstairs toilet two weeks ago. All's been well so far.

    A small kid's knit glove was accidentally flushed down an upstairs toilet two weeks ago. All's been well so far. It's a 3-bathroom house, two toilets upstairs and one in a far storage room downstairs, not hooked up to water and never used. Now the never-used always-dry downstairs toilet is suddenly filling up in the bowl when the upstairs toilets are flushed, and it's leaking around where it's seated on the floor. Surprisingly as well, I looked at the PVC septic cap in the yard and it's unusually moist around the threads. Did a small child's glove create the problem? Or did cold North Georgia weather? Am I up against something else and more serious? Thanks for answers.

  • Why the aircon makes hot air in summer, and cool air in winter? I set 24 degrees both for summer and winter.?

    Best answer: It's a heating and cooling system. That's why it costs so much, because it's two machines in one fairly massive container.

    Hello everyone. A few years back (2016) I purchased a house in a gated community in Pennsylvania. At purchase, no one told me anything was wrong. We had an inspector come check the property, there were no warnings of anything forth coming. Recently, the water heater in my house broke. The entire first floor was flooded. Right after, once we finally got all the water out, we had an inspector come back and he told us that the first floor is basically crawling with mold, and it will cost us 1000 s of dollars to fix. If we don t fix the problem in the next year or 2, the first floor will basically cave on itself. Now, even if we got the water heater replaced, this would not have changed the mold situation. My question is, should we be the ones held accountable for the mold situation in the first floor? I do not intend to resell this house with this horrible mold situation to other tenants, this is a serious hazard. But we don t have the money to get it replaced. My question is, since this problem wasnt disclosed to us and we basically signed my name to the house under false pretenses, is there anything I can do to get this taken care of by either the previous owner or the owner of the gated community? We would sew if we have to. Thank you for reading.

  • Noticed air condition always trip the circuit breaker after about 45minutes to 1 hour running. It's already the 5th time. What's wrong?

    Best answer: check refrigerant levels in the a/c. [I assume you're in Australia -- a/cs don't run in North America at this time of year]. If that's ok -- you need to cal for repair because the compressor is drawing too much power. If you're actually in North America, the "a/c" is in heat mode and... show more
    Best answer: check refrigerant levels in the a/c. [I assume you're in Australia -- a/cs don't run in North America at this time of year].

    If that's ok -- you need to cal for repair because the compressor is drawing too much power.

    If you're actually in North America, the "a/c" is in heat mode and the heating elements [inside the air handler indoors] likely need to be cleaned. You start this by replacing the air filter [unless this was done within the past 60 days]. then you power off the system, open the air handler and locate/clean the strip heating elements.

    [PS: where are you? we aren't mind readers here ....]
