comment Is it possible to boost an electrical circuit for more current draw?
I used to have an HP LaserJet4 printer. I ran a separate circuit for it per the manual. That helped keep my lights from dimming too much. Recently I had an issue with a UPS that kept tripping. I found out that I could configure the UPS voltage trip sensitivity. Lowering the sensitivity solved my occasional tripping. Maybe your UPS has a similar feature.

comment Would bullet proof glass help deter burglars? How does it compare to normal glass?
In his edit David says he wants to sleep well at night. An alarm would do this for him. That is why I gave the answer, and I guess that is why it is being up voted.

comment Do I need a box-spring for my bed?
While it does not eliminate the box-spring, you can buy a thin box-spring. We did that when we got a pillow top mattress. The normal box-spring made the bed too high.

comment What are the drawbacks to bridging phases in my home electrical?
It will not spike your energy bill. The only problem you might have is if you install it incorrectly. If you are already installing switches and outlets correctly you should have no issue installing a phase coupler.

comment Where can I get a switch for a 30A circuit?
I did not notice the link was for a double throw switch. I updated the link and image. The prices at Grainger are high, but they have a lot of customers. Go figure.
