comment Why Do 240V Circuits Not Require Neutral?
Is the middle branch that completes either of the 120V circuits + or - ? Am I confused on how it can be hot AND netural?

So Neutral is just the route returning the current to the source?

This gets me to about 90% of understanding the answer, but I can't quite get there.

comment Attic Venting of Knee Wall in Cape Cod
I implemented a pretty genius solution; according the AEP rep that had to inspect my work for a rebate. I created a plenum between the knee wall attic and the main attic above using the chase between the attic joists and the ceiling of my stairs. I opened it up. Closed up areas to allow only the square footage of ventilation needed at wall of the knee wall attic. I then insulated the area above the stairs with fiberglass and 1" foam. Now I can feel and hear the air being pulled from the lower area to the upper attic through the chase.

comment Can I install insulation on the ceiling of an old unfinished basement?
That stuff is like three times the cost and has mixed reviews. I have pondered it, but decided against it personally.

comment Is some condensation on bathroom walls safe?
Isn't it a good thing to see the condensation forming on the paint as opposed to getting through the drywall and condensating on the vapor barrier?

Aren't most suburban homes built with drywall around the shower enclosures?

comment Where do I need to insulate my house to help avoid ice dams?
I have a cap cod which had ice dams in two overhangs. Once I added soffit vent to pull cold air through that area, I haven't seen an ice damn since.

comment Can I cover junction boxes in the attic with insulation?
I used those Tyco splices originally, but I replaced them with metal junction boxes and hung them on the underside of the roof rafters. The insulation job was a whopping pain in a cape cod.

comment How do I rehang a wooden door with worn screw holes?
The toothpick in a stripped wood hole is one of the greatest all time fixes. I keep a certain shape of toothpick around the house just for this purpose.
