Have you ever oiled the motors? Many fans require occasional lubrication.

If the chair can hold up to rain (doubtful), why not just hose it down with a sprinkler?

comment How to prevent an exterior automatic watering system from freezing
Apologies. I misread which end of the system the hayloo would be on. I thought it was in the field.

This assumes the water is being regularly used. If there were an extended freeze and no water movement, R-50 would soon be useless.

comment I rewired my two bulb ceiling light
A/C bulbs in most systems are wired in parallel, not series. And, if the filament in one bulb was out, neither will work in series.

comment Replacing a toggle dimmer switch with a regular light switch
It is likely that two of the black and/or red wires are bundled together in one cable (along with a white and bare/green), going toward the other switch. The remaining black or red wire is in a cable with a white and bare/green. If so, that single wire is the common (the paired black/red are the travelers).
