WHAT IS A HEAT PUMP?
A heat pump transfers heat between two places. In the summer, it pulls heat out of your house and forces it outside, leaving your indoor space cool. In winter, it draws warm air inside so you stay nice and toasty.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN ELECTRICIAN AND ELECTRICAL CONTRACTOR?
There is a difference between an electrician and electrical contractor. An electrician is a worker who specializes and is qualified to do tasks related to electrical systems. They have completed an apprenticeship and courses. An electrical contractor is the person or company that hires electricians. They must study longer and pass more exams than an electrician. Most of the time, both are licensed and insured. But an electrical contractor will always only employee licensed electricians.
Why is there a buzzing noise in my electrical panel?
There could be several reasons you hear a buzzing noise in your electrical panel. Depending on the type and location of the panel, it could indicate several different issues. If the panel is located near an AC unit or outside appliance that runs on electricity, it could be due to electromagnetic interference (EMI). This type of interference can cause the wires, circuits, and other components in the panel to vibrate and create a buzzing sound. You should move the appliance away from your electrical panel to rectify this issue. It is also possible for a buzzing noise to come from loose or damaged wiring within the panel itself. When wires become loose over time, they can create high-pitched buzzing noises, which indicate a problem with the wiring connection. If this is what you're hearing, it's essential to shut off power to your system and contact an electrician for further inspection. Overloaded circuits in your electrical panel may also cause a buzzing noise. Circuit overloads happen when too many appliances are connected to one circuit simultaneously, causing it to draw too much current with each use. In this case, you will need to check how many appliances are connected to each circuit and switch some appliances off until the course returns to an acceptable load capacity level.
What size socket is an oxygen sensor?
If registered, there is a 7/8" (22mm) hole. An open-end wrench may damage the O2 sensor, so it's better to cut the wires and remove them with regular sockets.
I bought a new refrigerator/freezer and I was planning to move my old one out to the garage and use it for additional cold storage space. Will it damage the unit if I store it in the garage?
Only if it is a self-defrosting refrigerator and the temperature in your garage drops below 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, it is possible that the oil could thicken and cause premature compression failure.
How many amps does a clothes dryer pull?
Depending on the strength of the current and temperature, how much power it uses will vary. Ideally, you should have a 30 Amp breaker. The dryer is only going to use 25 Amps, though.
