What is a GFCI circuit breaker or outlet?
GFCI stands for Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter. It constantly measures the current on the hot and the neutral wire of a circuit. If the current in one of the wires differs from the other by 1/10,000 of an ampere the breaker or outlet trips. It does so because that 1/10,000 of an ampere is leaking and flowing somewhere other than through the wire and that somewhere could be someone’s body. These are used in wet locations throughout the house. Kitchens, bathrooms, outside, Garages, etc.
What do the colored circles mean on match?
The colored circles on Match tell you the activity status of a user. For example, a solid green circle next to a user's name means that they have been online within the last 45 minutes. If the green circle is empty, it indicates that they were last online between 46 minutes and 24 hours ago. An empty yellow circle means the user was last active between 24 and 72 hours ago. Lastly, no circle signifies that the user has not logged in for over 72 hours.
Do I have to break my tiles to repair my leaking shower faucet?
This all depends on the condition, age, and plumber you decide to use for this repair. An unexperienced plumber will most likely recommend breaking the tiles and replace the entire unit inside the wall. The proper procedure would be to first identify the make and model of the shower unit and properly diagnose the issue and parts needed. 90% of the time we can locate the correct parts. Experience is vital for this repair as it is needed to identify the unit.
How do I know the repair technician I choose is reputable?
Any technician you hire should be able to boast the proper licenses and insurance, but in addition to that, you want someone who will show up on time when they say they will, have the necessary parts on hand to minimize wait time, perform the job quickly and efficiently and leave your home neat and tidy. Look for someone who respects your time and will act with integrity and timeliness. Check out reviews on the company and get word of mouth recommendations to ensure you’re hiring someone who’s highly regarded in the community. Look for a company that offers a good warranty on quality parts and appliances
Common Air Duct Cleaning Terms
Access: The ability to gain entry to the interior of the air duct or HVAC component. Access Door: Fabricated metal barrier (hatch) by which a service opening is accessed or closed. Adhered Substance: A material, such as mastic, that is not removable by direct contact vacuuming. ACGIH: American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists. Adhered Particulate: Any material not intended or designed to be present in an HVAC system, and which must be dislodged in order to be removed. Aerosols: Solid or liquid airborne particles. AIHA: American Industrial Hygiene Association. Air Duct: A passageway for distribution and extraction of air, excluding plenums not installed in accordance with SMACNA Standards (See ASHRAE Terminology of Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration, 1991). Air Duct Covering: Materials such as insulation and banding used to cover the external surface of a duct. Air Duct Lining: Generally refers to fiberglass or other matting affixed to the interior surfaces of the air ducts for thermal insulation and noise attenuation. Air Filtration Device (AFD): A portable or transportable, self-contained blower assembly designed to move a defined volume of air equipped with one or more stages of particulate filtration. Depending on the mode of use, an AFD that filters (usually HEPA) and re-circulates air is referred to as an "air scrubber." One that filters air and creates negative pressure is referred to as a "negative air machine." Air-handling Unit (AHU): A packaged assembly, usually connected to ductwork, that moves air and may also clean and condition the air. Coils: Devices inside an HVAC system that temper and/or dehumidify the air handled by the HVAC system. These include heat exchangers with or without extended surfaces through which water, ethylene glycol solution, brine, volatile refrigerant, or steam is circulated for the purpose of total cooling (sensible cooling plus latent cooling) or sensible heating of a forced-circulation air stream. Collection Device: A HEPA-filtered machine designed primarily to collect debris, filter particulate and discharge air back to the indoor environment, or a fan driven non-HEPA-filtered machine that is designed to collect debris, and then filter particulate while discharging the air outside the building envelope. Ductwork: A system of passageways for distribution and extraction of air, excluding plenums not installed in accordance with SMACNA Standards. EPA: United States Environmental Protection Agency Duct Access Door: Fabricated metal barrier (hatch) by which a service opening is accessed or closed. HEPA: High Efficiency Particulate Air. To be called a true HEPA filter, or certified HEPA filter the filter must have a documented filtration efficiency of 99.97% at 0.3 micron-sized particles. HVAC System: The heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system includes any interior surface of the facility's air distribution system for conditioned spaces and/or occupied zones. This includes the entire heating, air-conditioning, and ventilation system from the points where the air enters the system to the points where the air is discharged from the system. IAQA: Indoor Air Quality Association Mold Contaminated: The presence of indoor mold growth and/or mold spores, whose identity, location and amplification are not reflective of a normal fungal ecology for an indoor environment, and which may produce adverse health effects and cause damage to materials, and adversely affect the operation or function of building systems. Porous HVAC System Surface: Any surface of the HVAC system in contact with the air stream that is capable of penetration by either water or air. Examples include fiberglass duct liner, fiber glass duct board, wood, and concrete. Thermal Acoustic Materials: HVAC insulation materials designed for sound and temperature control. UL: Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. Vacuum Collection Equipment: See "Collection Device." Visibly Clean: A condition in which the interior surfaces of the HVAC system are free of non-adhered substances and debris. Visual Inspection: Visual examination with the naked eye of the cleanliness of the HVAC system Wet Process Cleaning: Any method of mechanical cleaning of HVAC components that utilizes water and/or liquid chemicals as part of the process (i.e. power washing, steam cleaning, hand washing).
