comment Why is GFCI tripping on refrigerator circuit?
The exception was there, so you didn't have to GFCI protect the receptacle you plugged the garage door opener into. Turns out a bunch of people found that receptacle was also useful for plugging in those retractable extension cords. When the NEC caught on, they removed the exception.

@benrudgers That exception no longer exists, and when it did exist it was in garages not basements.

comment What would be your choice for a no frills good and reliable furnace?
Call a few local HVAC companies and see what they offer. A furnace is not something you can just pop over to Home Depot and buy, you'll have to get it through an HVAC contractor. You'll be limited by whatever the local dealers offer, and most smaller shops carry only a single brand.

@merk The tool Steven suggests is what's used to prevent the basket from spinning. In extreme cases like this, they aren't very useful.

comment Can we capture the hot, humid air from a gas-powered clothes dryer during winter?
Probably a bad idea. The amount of moisture dispelled by the dryer, is likely too much to put back into your home. Extracting the heat from the exhaust can be a dangerous game, and may have a higher cost than it's worth.

comment How do I check if this furnace switch the blower to second speed
Increasing the speed of the air moving through the furnace, will likely have the opposite effect than what you're looking for. The air will not have enough time to pick up heat, and the furnace will overheat faster.

comment How do I check if this furnace switch the blower to second speed
You can check the temperature with a thermometer, an infrared thermometer is a good tool for this. When the limit switch trips, the blower should not turn off. It should continue to run, to purge the excess heat. Sounds like a cracked heat exchanger. You should contact a local HVAC company, and have them come take a look. Probably cheaper to replace the furnace, than to swap out the heat exchanger.

comment How to check issue with Gas fire place?
Some fireplaces have a pilot. Flipping the switch on and off a gajillion times won't do anything, if you don't light the pilot.
