comment How best can I discover what is up with my electrical bill?
I used my kill-a-watt to take readings everywhere I could. Then I made estimates about light fixtures. I put these in a spreadsheet. By comparing with my utility bill, I knew roughly what the unmesurables were using. I periodically repeat the process and compare the numbers over time.

comment How do I secure a canvas garage?
I have some that look exactly like this, and claim to be for a 5/8" drill, but are still way to small. That was the largest size my hardware store stocked. sigh

comment How many “zones” should my underfloor heating system have?
It would help to know some dimensions; the total square footage at least. Also, something about your climate and insulation, so we know how much load will be on the heating system.

comment Should I pursue building my own wind turbine?
what needs are you hoping to meet? How long an outage do you hope to have power for? How much power do you want to use during that time?

Are you saying that the heater or AC stays on for hours, continuously?
