comment How do I get even water pressure from a bathtub mixer faucet?
I'm not sure it's "broken". When you start, you're only getting cold water from the tap (handle all the way towards cold). As you turn the handle towards hot, you start getting both hot and cold water (warm water). This is normal.

So you have a mixing valve (where there is only one handle), but you want separate handles (one for hot and one for cold)?

If the switch has a backstab terminal, you can use that for one of the wires, instead of using the side screw terminal for both.

comment What should I do after mistakenly using moldy paint on drywall?
I'm not sure the "smell test" is an approved mold detection procedure, or if it's a good idea to go around sniffing mold.

comment What could be causing my boiler not to work?
If you're getting burnt wires, your roll out switch may have failed closed. Contact an HVAC technician to determine if the switch is bad, and\or if there are any other faults in the system. The roll out switch is meant to detect abnormally high temperatures near the burner. If the switch has failed closed and the temperatures are too high, it could lead to damage to the boiler, property damage, injury, or death.
