Thanks. I guess the easiest thing might actually just be to try a new one anyway, as I know this sort of thing likely has no easy fix (if one can even determine the problem).

Ceiling fan hum

I have 2 completely different ceiling fans in 2 different rooms. They both make a similar 'hum' as soon as they are turned on (almost before they even start moving). I don't believe it's a physical...

Hi. I have a Generac XG8000E and what appears to be a 30A 125/250V cable (pics below). I believe it's 10' and I want to get a longer one (maybe 25' or so).

In any case, is this the proper...

Thank you very much. I'll see what I can find online next time I'm in a spot with decent cell service...

Nest temperature sensor - useful?

To confirm, if I have central A/C with just 1 zone in the house, and heat is just upstairs/downstairs (with 1 nest already located upstairs and 1 downstairs), there is no reason to get these,...

Thanks and it looks like I do have soffit venting (or at least baffles, sorry, I don't exactly know what all this means). This is part of what the insulation company did when we moved in:

When we bought our coloinal-style home (in southern CT) 8 years ago, the home inspector noted that the attic fan wasn't working. My question is; is it a no-brainer to fix/replace it (yes, it's taken...
