What type of anti-scald valve should I get? A thermostatic mixing valve or a pressure-balance valve?
Thermostatic mixing valve
Pros: A maximum output temperature is set on the valve, so if you want your hot shower to be exactly 100 degrees every time, it has that temperature memory and will not go any higher than 100 degrees. Water conservation is easy because you can change the flow volume without affecting the temperature. This also means there is increase energy-efficiency. Your water heater can be set to 140 degrees, but you can still have absolute control over your shower.
Cons: They are more expensive and can only protect one fixture
Pros: They can have a lower initial cost, they provide scald protection, and they provide moderate comfort.
Cons: They have no temperature memory, you have to fiddle with knobs to achieve your desired temperature, and they have no additional scald protection.

I have some Viking wine refrigerator that's making some loud noises. It's about 14 years old and showing some issues.
I just spoke with Kevin. This is Nicole. We had an appointment today, but the technician had to go to the hospital for his wife's birth, so we rescheduled it for tomorrow. The boss asked me to narrow it down. Instead of 12 to 3, she wants it from 11 to 12 PM or 1 to 3 PM. This is for the stove.
