comment Furnace filter inserted backwards, will this cause permanent damage?
Good chance that the problem is a coincidence of the filter and not caused by it. I take this is a split unit? Is the coil on the inside of the air handler frozen also? Maybe you have a refrigerant leak.

comment How to safely dispose of latex paint?
Most municipalities don't accept latex paint at hazardous waste events, though some might. Latex isn't considered a hazardous waste. Definitely a good place to bring oil based paints.

comment Should data ground wires be attached to plumbing?
Are you sure that it's okay to attach these grounds to the electric panel? This does not sound like it will meet NEC.

comment Do hot water tanks have to be in the drain pan
If you paid by credit card, you can inquire with them about service warranties the card provides. Worse case scenario, you can dispute the installation charge with your credit card. But, yes, the first step would be home depot.

comment Do hot water tanks have to be in the drain pan
I literally laughed out loud when I saw the pics of how the tank was placed. Thank you. I never get used to how terrible a job a "professional" can do. Get this plumber's boss involved. Don't put up with this, even if it turns out to be "safe". Money is too valuable to give away for this type of work.

comment 14ft Ceiling beam sagging 5/8" - what to do?
Yes, the hairline cracks down the middle of the drywall seams are common. Most likely caused by not filling the void between drywall sheets with enough compound or by using fiberglass tape on butt joints.

comment 14ft Ceiling beam sagging 5/8" - what to do?
Do you have pictures? Please don't let the 5/8" sag freak you out. My 1880's philadelphia rowhome had floor joists that bowed 1.5 - 2 inches over 14 feet when I bought it. I since sistered the joists, but at no time was the floor going to collapse or anything. This problem is not an emergency at this point!

comment Cleaning a very dusty garage
If getting a shop vac, make sure to use bags, and not the filter that comes with it. It will clog very fast, and will lose suction.

comment Is it OK to have more than one neutral wire in the same connection on the neutral bus bar on a main panel?
There should be instructions printed on the box. Did you find any specs on the inside of the door?
