comment How can I determine what the minimum working pressure is for a gas range?
Check the manufacturers installation instructions. It will surely be listed there.

I'm not sure minimum pressure is a spec that's typically listed. It will likely be included in the installation instructions, but not likely in the specs.

comment Sub Panel Install - Main Panel Full
Holy crow, that's a packed panel! Is this a large home, or is each receptacle on its own breaker? I've seen panels full of regular breakers, but never one full with tandem breakers. Seeing that suggests that maybe you should do a new load calculation (including the new loads in the basement), and see if it's time to upgrade the service.

comment Why does my breaker trip when I turn a light on?
Did this problem just start happening, or did something change that caused the problem (modified electrical, hung pictures on the wall, got a new light, etc.)?

comment How to troubleshoot heat that's always on?
I'd start by drawing myself a simple circuit diagram, of how I thought everything was wired. Then I'd verify the wiring, updating my diagram as I went. This will make it easier to see if the wiring is incorrect.

If you're burning out the transformer, you're either drawing too much current, or you've created a short with the wiring.

comment Dry wall, mounting 13KG whiteboard
@bib I've edited a bit. Even though toggles and anchors exist, does not mean drywall should be used to support things. Drywall is a finish material designed to hide the underlying structure, not a structural material (even though it may add rigidity to the wall).

comment How to troubleshoot heat that's always on?
So what it sounds like, is that when either thermostat calls for heat, the boiler turns on. Then each thermostat activates its own zone valve, to direct the heat to the correct zone. If this is the case, it could be that the one zone valve is stuck open. Or that one of the thermostats is always calling for heat, whether due to a bad thermostat or faulty wiring.

comment What can cause short life of the igniter in furnace?
Are you sure you replaced it with the correct part? I think Trane uses 80, or 120 volt igniters depending on the furnace. From what I could find, the 80 volt igniters have black leads, while the 120 volt igniters have white leads. You might also want to contact Trane, or your local dealer, as there may be a service bulletin out for this. Typically if there's a common problem in a product, the company will put out a service bulletin which tells technicians how to solve the problem.

comment How to determine if my heating & cooling system is adequate for my home?
The calculation is complex, and includes the number of windows facing each direction, wall thickness, insulation, climate, etc. Square footage is only a single variable, in a much larger equation. You can probably find an online calculator, or maybe a smartphone app.
