Currently, we do use power bars in a couple of the rooms but the wife doesn't like them, particularly in the baby's room and wants to plug things into the wall outlet.

We have a couple of those converters but the extra thickness causes problems when placed behind furniture.

comment Why do I have a reduced flame in my natural gas fireplace when the furnace or water heater runs?
+1: If nothing has changed in the house or gas plumbing, then it sounds like an issue with your gas pressure. Your gas service should be rated for a certain psi coming into the house. Your utility provider might provide testing of their service without you having to pay for a pro to come in and test it.

comment Can I connect an outdoor wood stove to my current HVAC system?
That makes sense because you are pulling in hot air from close proximity to the stove within an area without much air flow to disperse the hot air. However, if the stove is sitting outside in cold weather, there probably isn't going to be much hot air to pull into the duct system.

+1 for advice to check insurance policy. I didn't know certain stoves could invalidate your home owner's insurance policy.

comment How do I regrade the ground around my house?
Do you have a basement below the grade? Are you getting any water leaking through the walls into the basement? Are you seeing any evidence of water getting under the house, or do you just see erosion and the ground sloping down toward the house?
