comment How safe is having my boiler in my daughter's bedroom?
@drake035 Avoiding the unavoidable is not possible, you're correct about that. But why would you tempt fate, if you didn't have to? You're comparing things that are far beyond your control, with something that is easily controlled. A 0.0001% chance of something happening, is still a better chance than 0%.

comment dual GFCI circuits with multiple protected outlets, all sharing a neutral
If your circuit is actually wired like this, it's a mess! First off, your GFCI receptacles are hooked up backwards. In your image the grounded (neutral) terminal is on the left, but you have the ungrounded (hot) conductor connected to it. Secondly, because of the shared neutral you'll always have unbalanced loads through both GFCI receptacles. This is going to cause one or both of them to trip, as soon as any load is put on the circuit.

comment Can I run a 50 amp circuit underground?
@MikeB I can't keep up with every local change to the NEC, I simply go by the unmodified version. It's possible that some locations may require this or that.

comment What is causing my circuit breaker to trip instantly and trip the next breaker too? Update - Video Added
The breaker might be bad, and you might be able to change it yourself. As for figuring out which receptacles, lights and fans are fed through the breaker. That's easy. It's all the things that stop working when the breaker is OFF.
