Troubleshooting Furnaces: A Short Video Primer

- .  That’s gotta be some kind of a rip-off record, right?  I’ll probably write another blog post in the future, giving advice on how to hire an ethical heating contractor.  The reader lives in a 2002 built home in Rosemount, and was charged over $2,800 (yes, Two Thousand Eight Hundred Dollars) for 1.

Saddle valves: cheap, easy, and wrong

To replace a saddle valve or tee off an existing water line, start by obtaining the needed parts.  If you’re comfortable soldering copper tubing and you already have the equipment to do it, this project will cost about $10 ..More
