Keeping your clothes dryer safe

Hot Water Faster

-   I decided against these options because the installation would take too much time, and the materials alone would cost more than I was willing to spend. .  Thanks to an idea I read about in The Journal of Light Construction, I was able to significantly reduce the amount of time it takes to get hot water at my kitchen faucet, and the total cost of materials for this project was less than $40. I’ve considered a few different options to get hot water at my kitchen sink faster, such as installing a re-circulating pump or a point-of-use water heater – you can read about the details of these options at Home Depot’s web site ..More

Burning Dryer Transition Ducts

- .  The strange thing is that these semi-rigid ducts seem to be universally accepted by building code officials, and they’re recommended by clothes dryer manufacturers. Semi-rigid metal dryer transition ducts are available anywhere dryer duct materials are sold, but it’s almost impossible to find a UL Listed version of this.  Everyone seems to like these, but they have their drawbacks: they puncture easily, they crush easily, they unravel easily, and they have very sharp edges.  I repeat, very sharp edges ..More
