comment Furnace not working properly with digital thermostat
What type of furnace do you have (make and model)? What type of A/C unit do you have (make and model)? What type of thermostats have you tried to install (make and model)? How are you wiring the new thermostats?

comment How to GFCI protect bathroom lighting circuit
Without more information, it's difficult to provide an accurate answer. Does the switch box only have one cable entering it (the 14/3 cable)? If so, you're not going to be able to protect anything other than the GFCI receptacle itself with the current wiring. Unless you install a GFCI breaker. Could you provide some photos, or at least a simple wiring diagram?

comment How to GFCI protect bathroom lighting circuit
You could install a GFCI breaker. That would protect the entire circuit. Otherwise you'll have to connect one of the switch loop wires from the GFCI switch combo, to the load terminal of the GFCI switch combo. You'll also have to connect the neutral for the light, to the neutral load terminal of the GFCI combo.

comment Is there an cheaper alternative to plexiglass?
Plexiglas® is a trademarked name for Polymethyl methacrylate, whereas LEXAN™ is a trademarked name for Polycarbonate. Both of which are transparent "plastic" materials. The term "plexiglass" can be used interchangeably to mean either material. Which material are you talking about when you say "plexiglass"?
