comment What kind of valve is this and how do I disconnect it?
Thanks! I didn't even know how to google for this, so knowing its name is incredibly helpful.

comment What should I do about water dripping into my smoke detector from the attic after a heavy rain?
I updated with more information and a picture. I think Condensation is still probably the culprit, and I might see about getting insulation put down over that section. I have sent the builder an email, and will probably call him if I don't hear back tomorrow

I should clarify a bit, though, it's not so much a hole, but a can where the detector sits, and the wiring comes down in through the attic. So it does sit above the rest of the ceiling but is not a gaping opening to the rest of the attic as far as I am aware. I'll edit the question to make that clear

That is possible, that section of the attic did not appear to have insulation on top of it.

comment Why does my fan switch sometimes turn the lights off?
Marked it from my phone, waited until I got back to a computer for the typing. It was the z-wave dimmer is sensitive to the fan switch, coupled with using bulbs it wasn't happy with. I switched them to LEDs and it's mostly gone away, but I'm planning on living with the remaining problem for now, since I rarely if ever change the fan from 3 to off.

@gregmac Yep, had seen that warning before (in big bold letters no less), which led to the question. The reason I mean they're inaccessable is that that whole thing is a painted over clump in the back, and I didn't really want to mess with digging it out.

@gregmac Since there's not an accessible neutral wire in that box, where would I place the second connection? (Pardon the noob question). But I agree, I'm beginning to think I'll just have to live with the lights occasionally going off (It now only happens when you switch from 3 to anything else, after I changed the bulbs...)

@gregmac The measurements are coming from "Power to dimmer" and "to light", aka on either side of the dimmer switch. Cool deal on that, I wasn't sure if it was totally necessary to pigtail the #12 cable to each connection or just run it directly off of the power line.
