JJackstone,

I've never seen that Ohm's law wheel before, so I stand corrected. No worries dude, you're not a pain. That's why I love this site. People are willing to share knowledge.

Take care

JJ,

Steve,

You need to look at Ohm's law. Voltage = Watts X Resistance. Or Watts = Resistance / Voltage. You already know you don't need an alternator to run the LED lights. They run off of DC...

A long time ago, in a former life, I used to be a locksmith. I hate to break it to you Ben... $23 is not a mid grade lock. You can tell either by the price, or the fact you got it at a big box...

Can anyone tell me how to post a picture for my...

I didn't realize asking about spray foaming an attic would cause such division. This difference of opinion could actually be very good in coming up with a way to quickly, cheaply, AND qualitatively...

OK, so it looks like Tiger Foam or Handi Foam is the closest thing I'm going to get to calling in a pro with the pressurized paint gun delivery system. I'm OK with that. I'd rather DIY it myself...

Piwoslaw,

The closest thing I have to a DC subsystem is a few variable AC to DC transformers from Rat Shack. This is simply because any of my DC based electronics require an AC plug to charge...

eco dude,

I don't know what you decided to do, but here's what I did if it helps.

My house had the original 1964 single pane windows when I moved in. When the Santa Ana winds blew, my drapes...

Don't get me started on Building Inspectors

I'm still in the process of doing that to my house two years after I bought it. Seriously, if I hadn't have gutted it before I moved it, I probably would have burned it down in frustration simply...

strider3700,

I know it's about a year later, but, just be careful about "monitoring" your usage. It's really easy to fall into an obsession. I know. I did. Just after I got my PV panels...

Yea, this was me two years ago (still is). When I bought my house, I knew it was going to be a fixer-upper. I knew the wiring was DIY because of the unsheilded and exposed inside plug that was...

Daox,

It's a year later. What did you end up doing with the rest of the concrete? Jack hammer, sledge, put it on the back burner?
