comment How do I wire a new ceiling light with power to the ceiling and 3-way switches?
One of the white wires will connect to the white wire on the light. One of the black wires will connect to either the other black wire, or the other white wire. Finally the remaining wire will connect to the black wire on the light.

Didn't you label the wires when you disconnected them from the previous fixture?

comment How much energy will continuously running a furnace fan use?
If you take the measurements when in 'Cool' mode (if available), you'll likely see a current draw similar to the 'Fan ON' mode. Blower motors often run at slower speeds when in 'Heat' mode, because hot air is lighter and easier to move.

When the furnace is firing, the draft inducer will be running as well. This will account for the extra current draw when the furnace is firing.

@maple_shaft I just made up some numbers, and even mentioned that in my "notes" section at the end. "Values used are not actual values, they are example values only.".

Just glancing quickly through International Plumbing Code (IPC), I noticed for threaded joints of various materials it says "Pipe-joint compound or tape shall be applied on the male threads only". Notice it doesn't say "and/or"... Just sayin'

comment Cheaper to run central heating sporadically high or constantly low?
I think there are too many variables involved to give a general answer. It'll likely depend on the heating system, size of the space, insulation (or lack thereof), floor/wall coverings, furniture, number of occupants, other heat sources, etc.

comment How to tell if a ceiling junction box is braced to hold the weight of a ceiling fan?
Just a note. In the quoted text (and throughout NEC) "outlet" is not the same as "receptacle".
