There is not reason to defer anything to an electrician. You...

Re: bus bar question

My take on this is that there is a 200% chance of a bad connection at the terminals.

Re: It's Raining in My Attic!

Re: bus bar question

I'm not here to argue the point, but I don't see it that way. In actuality there is more surface connection with the wire split.

Just trying to understand the Code perspective of the issue.

Re: Need guidance on write up

Door filters are redundant.

The coil has filters installed.

Re: It's Raining in My Attic!

I am less concerned about ventilation than the source of moisture.
