    NiCad is Nickel Cadmium. NiMH is Nickel Metal Hydride and is a slightly newer technology than NiCad. The NiMH usually has more capacity than NiCad for the same size battery. I suspect that the...

    If you read it online, then it must be true. Seriously, compare what you are buying to what you are replacing. There should be an identification data plate on the old heater. If the new one is not...

    Check the identification plate on your existing water heater to determine the voltage, amperage and/or wattage requirements. You should select a new unit that matches the old one. The one you have...

    The diameter of the spring will get smaller; however, you will probably not notice that. It's the length of the spring that will get longer. Think of it this way - every time you wind one full turn...

    Suggest that you go with the external (gasoline powered) small generator. It is easy enough to find a 5000 watt generator at a reasonable price. These usually furnish 240 volt / 20 amp supply. And...

    Agree with TJR - you now have too much spring. However, if you truly do have the same inner diameter and the same wire size, then shortening the length by 2" should have given less than a ten...

    I am certainly not the expert here, so I will defer to someone who is; but, turning off the main valve at the entrance to the house is the way I do it. I also shut off the water heaters. When I...

    It sounds like you are on the right track with this new contractor. A 6"X6" return air duct sounds awfully small and would certainly restrict airflow. Ductwork leaks will also seriously degrade...

    Bricks - It really does sound as if your system should be adequate. There must be something amiss somewhere. BTW, can you give us the manufacturer and model number of your heat pump? I look...

    The only way to get an accurate design for HVAC is to do a Manual J calculation. That being said, I have found that older homes with average insulation, infiltration, and single pane windows will...

    I am assuming that you verified that the light was not burned out?

    Another issue that I have had on LiftMaster operators is that the tab at the bottom of the socket does not contact the light...

    Sounds like your up and down limit switches may not be set properly. Check your owner's manual for proper procedure. You might also check the up or down force limits as well.
  15. If you have truly wound your spring 8 full turns,...

    If you have truly wound your spring 8 full turns, you should not have any slack develop on the lift cable (assuming you have 4 inch drums). There must be something binding in the torsion shaft,...

    Sounds like your spring is too strong. I calculate that your spring will lift a 165 pound door.

    Always measure your springs in the unwound state.

    The door should balance at any level. It...

    Sounds like something is binding on the shaft, cable drums, or spring. Eight full turns when winding a torsion spring should be plenty (7 turns is normal). Check out this tutorial Single Torsion...
  18. Poll: Shop Around

    That sounds like a lot of money for just a condenser and evaporator/fan replacement. I know it is a Cadillac heat pump, but that sounds high.

    19 SEER is a lot unless you plan on staying in the...

    Suggest that you identify your garage door opener by manufacturer and model number. You can then Google that info to get a copy of the owner's manual. You should be able to get the proper set up...

    "Also, if they are the ones that replaced the air handler without replacing the condenser at the same time, isn't that the wrong solution?" Not necessarily.

    Wow! A lot of questions! First off, let me say that it will be hard to properly diagnose and recommend a new system without first seeing your existing house and system. With that in mind, let me...

    I sure was hoping that you were going to say above! In any event, go ahead and re-install the strut on the upper panel. Raise the door to the fully opened position, and take a photograph so that we...
