comment thermostat c wire question
Unused low voltage wires in HVAC and telco, are often wrapped back around the cable. It's a very common practice, which allows the wire to be used as needed in the future. Instead of criticizing the installer for doing this, you should thank them. Unwrap the wire, and use it as your C wire.

comment How can I tell if something is ruptured inside my lawnmower?
Don't forget to remove the spark plug wire from the spark plug, before reaching your hand under the deck and fiddling with the blade.

comment What would be involved in moving electrical panel a few inches?
Don't forget to tighten the terminal screws to the proper (manufacturer recommended) torque. Loose connections lead to heat, which leads to worse connections, which leads to more heat. It's a vicious cycle, which ends in fire.

comment Why is my bathroom floor raised up very high?
Could it simply be that the bathroom is tile (concrete-mortar-tile), while the hallway is just concrete/vinyl/low pile carpet (concrete-thin cover layer)?

I'm fairly sure 12 VAC systems are covered by NEC.
