comment How can I stop exhaust fan vent condensation problems?
@bcworkz :) I don't want belabor the (dew) point. But dew point actually has a concrete definition. It is defined as the temperature below which condensation occurs, and is given in degrees C or F. So the higher the RH the lower the dew point, not higher as you say in your comment and imply in your answer. (All puns intended.)

+1 Although I think you meant either "bathroom exhaust has a very low dew point" or "bathroom exhaust has a very high relative humidity".

comment What could be causing this leaky evaporator problem?
"do you think he is on the right track?" is a pretty vague question to answer. "Do you think this is part of the problem?" makes me wonder what, exactly, you mean by "this". I'm pretty sure somebody here can give you help, but it will be much easier for everyone if you could focus your question(s).

comment What kinds of dimmers do I need?
Reading this answer I'm left with the impression that the Insteon solution would require a PC to work. This is not true. The solution using three Insteon switches can be programmed and put to use without any PC involved.

comment How do I remove a drill bit that is stuck due to an overtightened chuck?
I've had success with channellock pliers. They usually leave marks on the chuck, but they're also more common than strap wrenches.

comment How do I hang a 500lb bed swing?
A picture or diagram of the swing and your porch would also help. If it's under tension like a hammock, there may well be forces much higher than 500lb involved.

comment Where can I find strong magnetic strips?
This seems like a "let's go shopping" question. You might want to review this post about 'shop for me' questions and see if you can reword it. A quick google search yields lots of hits for strong magnets. You'll need to explain why the google results are inadequate for you question to be accepted.

comment What could be causing this washer to rattle very loud sometimes?
It's not really clear from your question what, exactly, the symptom is. Is it the predominant high frequency sound in the video? If so, I'm not confident that I'm hearing an earnest reproduction of it which makes it difficult to offer second opinion. Or, is it the amount or nature of motion of the basin you are concerned about?
