I've read that even if there are doorways and such in interior walls, that those walls can still be load-bearing walls. I suspect that the wall I'm dealing with is a load-bearing one. I want to...

Well, in hindsight my previous place only had a "few" carpenter ants. Just got a new place at the end of February, and this past week the ants made a spectacular entrance. We knew the place had...

The furnace wouldn't start at all last week. The technician came in and cleared some blockages, and then it worked fine until yesterday. I've been told that the condensate drain line should slope...

Question Lennox Pulse condensate line question

My Lennox Pulse is dead again, though I'm pretty sure it's just another condensate-related clog somewhere, as that is all it's ever had wrong with it. I'm enclosing a link to a photo of what I'm...
