Removing the switches and splicing power straight through would be another option.

comment LP for gas stove
I haven't read through the codes, but I think either rigid pipe (black steel pipe), or Corrugated stainless steel tubing (CSST) is acceptable. You're probably not going to be using the same piping you used for your portable gas grill, unless your gas grill is really heavy duty.

comment Two A/C units are close to each other and turning one on turns the other on. How to fix?
Including the make and model of the units will help folks provide the most accurate information possible. It's likely that there's a way to adjust the remote/receivers to eliminate interference, but it's impossible to provide the exact procedure without knowing more about the device.

comment How to get doorbell louder?
Depending on the setup, it might be possible to add a secondary bell in a different location. Wireless bells might also be an option. It might also be worth looking into bells designed specifically for the hearing impaired, which offer louder tones, flashing lights, and other attention getting gizmos.

Don't forget to insure that the transformer has the capability to supply the newfangled thermostat.

comment What do I do with the ground wire?
You've got it round backwards. The OP has a grounding conductor, but the new switch does not have a grounding terminal. Also, simply connecting a wire to a nearby water pipe is NOT a proper grounding method.
