comment How can I stop mortar plugs from popping out of slab holes?
They tell you that it's normal that plugs pop out and harmful chemicals are exposed in your house, potentially to children? Well first I'd be reporting them to the EPA and FDA if they didn't pay to have someone who knew how to work with concrete over to fix your house TOMORROW.

Can we get a close up pic of the border of the window frame? Specifically where your red arrow is pointing.

Get a moisture tester and check the spots with the mold. If it's bone dry, the mold is dead/inactive and you need to take no additional action.

comment How do I install carpet tiles in a below grade room?
Ceramic tile ranges in thickness from 1/4" to 3/4", and there's usually at least 1/4" of mortar underneath, so it's definitely gaining more than 1/4" by removing the old tile.

The thickness is a reason to remove the ceramic tile as well.

comment How to keep my air conditioner from freezing when it is cool outside?
Take the AC off Maximum. Give the compressor a chance to shut off so the fins can defrost - set the temperature setting at a level where you can hear the compressor shut off from time to time.

And it's the outside grill - aka the heat ex changer - that's freezing over? Or the inside?
