comment Where can I find a temperature sensor that tweets?
6-more months later - in addition to ecobee's open API for complete control, they now support IFTTT if you don't want to do the lower level programming.

comment How to connect primer tubing to non-laundry faucet?
I'm surprised no one knew about this (I asked 6 so-called pros). That would have been a much simpler/cheaper solution. Thanks anyways.

comment How to connect primer tubing to non-laundry faucet?
You're right, it's small; 1/4" tubing -- the saddle valve will work, but I was sort-of hoping for an automatic priming.

comment How much weight can single-track shelving mounted on brick wall hold?
Can't calculate the load without knowing the screw type/size. Screws are rated by their shear and pull-out strengths in different types of materials -- pretty easy to select screws once you know the load.

comment How do I balance air outlet/inlet valves without an airflow meter?
When mine was installed (Canada), the technician told me the house will always have a "negative" air pressure when the furnace is off because the MVHR fan runs continuously. She demonstrated this by holding a tissue next to a window opened a crack. When the furnace is on, she explained, it will draw in the fresh air it needs and the MVHR fan will slow down or shut off as required.
