comment Can I manually run the blower on my Lennox G12Q3 furnace?
Well I'm not sure if my furnace even has the functionality to separately run the fan or not. I need someone in the know to tell me if it's even possible. I realize installing a thermostat is easy. Thanks for the heads up though.

I'll have to look into that. I imagine an HVAC repairman would know?

All it has is a lever to change the target temperature. Is that something that is generally included on a thermostat? I've never seen one that has a built in fan control.

comment What actions can I take to reduce moisture on basement floor?
I sloped the surface away from the house about 1' to 2' in this corner of the house. Since the slope towards the house is due to settling, I wonder if I need to slope much further away to extend beyond the section of ground that has settled with the house, ex: gist.github.com/3179163

comment What actions can I take to reduce moisture on basement floor?
(1) This is something I'll consider. I haven't noticed any correlation between heavy sewer discharge (ie, showers or multiple washing machine loads) and the moisture though. I don't know if I have weeping tile. (2) The eaves/downspout all run off 30 feet away from the foundation. I fixed that last year and really noticed a drop in the amount my sump pump runs (down to not at all, and yes it does work).

comment What actions can I take to reduce moisture on basement floor?
(1) Because I'm not seeing any discolouration on the walls, I'm not sure there is water against the foundation. I'm not an expert though (obviously). One solution I've heard is drilling a hole in the basement floor, and putting in a sump pit. Will this cause more problems than it solves? It sounds like my 2 initial thoughts (backfill and a dehumidifier) will be sufficient to manage this issue.

I read that the drywall doesn't provide a rigid enough backing to the track, so eventually it gets wobbly.
