Can I ground a ceiling fan to another electrical ceilin - 30 Jun 2019 03:54

<p>Recent NEC editions allow you to run a retrofit ground wire (equipment grounding conductor) from an ungrounded box/circuit to a grounded branch circuit's ground wire, provided the donor circuit has a large enough ground wire to be a suitable ground for the circuit being retrofitted. (For instance, if you are grounding a 20A circuit this way, the donor circuit would need to have a 12AWG or larger ground wire.) The permission for this is given in NEC 250.130(C):</p>
<blockquote readability="26 &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;(C) Nongrounding Receptacle Replacement or Branch Circuit Extensions.&lt;/strong&gt; The equipment grounding conductor of a grounding-type receptacle or a branch-circuit extension shall be permitted to be connected to any of the following:&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;(1) Any accessible point on the grounding electrode system as described in 250.50&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;(2) Any accessible point on the grounding electrode conductor&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;(3) The equipment grounding terminal bar within the enclosure where the branch circuit for the receptacle or branch circuit originates&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;(4) An equipment grounding conductor that is part of another branch circuit that originates from the enclosure where the branch circuit for the receptacle or branch circuit originates&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;(5) For grounded systems, the grounded service conductor within the service equipment enclosure&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;(6) For ungrounded systems, the grounding terminal bar within the service equipment enclosure&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Informational Note: See 406.4(D) for the use of a ground-fault circuit-interrupting type of receptacle.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;/blockquote&gt; &lt;p&gt;Furthermore, since ground wires do not need to run with the circuit they are grounding as per NEC 300.4(B)(2):&lt;/p&gt; &lt;blockquote readability=" 10="" <p="">
(2) Grounding and Bonding Conductors. Equipment ground‐ ing conductors shall be permitted to be installed outside a race‐ way or cable assembly where in accordance with the provisions of 250.130(C) for certain existing installations or in accordance with 250.134(B), Exception No. 2, for dc circuits. Equipment bonding conductors shall be permitted to be installed on the outside of raceways in accordance with 250.102(E).
<p></p>
</blockquote>
<p>, you can simply run a bare 14AWG wire from the new ceiling fan box, through the ceiling, to the &quot;donor&quot; box, bring the wire into the box, and connect it to the existing ground wire bundle there.</p>

The Best Way to Remove Wallpaper Without Losing Your Sa - 27 Jun 2019 05:37

Tags:

<aside class="recirculation post-info"></aside>
<p>What would you do to avoid removing wallpaper? Probably whatever you could, judging by the stories of woe we found on the web.</p>
<p class="p1 DIYer Rachel Meeks wrote in her “Small Notebook” blog that she was so overwhelmed by the prospect of removing 40-year-old wallpaper from several rooms that she actually &lt;em&gt;knocked down a couple of walls&lt;/em&gt; rather than spend time scraping.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p class=" p1="" if="" only="" she’d="" checked.="" she="" would="" have="" found t’s="" actually="" a="" fairly="" simple="" diy="" project="" so="" long="" as="" you="" the="" right="" info,="" tools,="" and="" expectations.="" (it’s="" gonna="" take="" <a="" name="some time"></p>some time!)
<p></p>
<a class="anchor" name="section-885"></a>
<h2>First, Check to See If Your Walls Were Primed</h2>
<p class="p1 Anyone who’s managed to remove wallpaper lickety-split likely (and luckily) had walls that were sealed with wallpaper primer before they were papered, says Geoff Sharp, owner and founder of Sharper Impressions Painting Co., which operates in several cities including Atlanta and Indianapolis.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p class=" p1="" priming="" became="" more="" common="" in="" the="" 1990s.="" it="" prevents="" wet="" glue="" from="" soaking="" into="" plaster="" or="" drywall="" and="" forming="" a="" tough-to-break="" bond.<=""></p>
<p class="p1 Loosen a corner or seam with a putty knife and pull. If it peels off in a sheet, you got primed!&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p class=" p1="" being="" able="" to="" peel="" off="" wallpaper="" in="" complete="" or="" partial="" sheets="" after="" lifting="" the="" corners="" with="" a="" putty="" knife="" is="" called="" dry="" stripping.<=""></p>
<p class="p1 With well-primed walls, dry stripping should work for the entire job and you could finish a room in a couple of hours at most.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;aside class=" recirculation="" list"=""></p>
<a class="anchor" name="section-886"></a>
<h2>Water Works Miracles on Getting Rid of Wallpaper</h2>
<p class="p1 “Wallpaper glue is water based, so water is a super-efficient remover,” says vlogger Chris Berry, known as The Idaho Painter, who owns B&amp;K Painting in Boise. “It works so well, we use it instead of chemical wallpaper strippers on both drywall and plaster.”&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p class=" p1="" here’s="" what="" to="" do="" with="" water:<=""></p>
<ul>
<li>Score or perforate the paper and its backing in sections so water can soak through and loosen the glue. The pros recommend a scoring tool called the PaperTiger (under $20) because it doesn’t harm the wall.</li>
<li>Douse the perforated paper with <em>hot</em> water using a pump or compression sprayer (under $50). OK, wallpaper-phobics, here’s where the myth that DIY removal is the worst gets legs. The big mistake most people make is using a regular old spray bottle or damp rag to wet the paper. This leads to hours of fruitless scraping (and griping) because the paper and its backing don’t get sufficiently saturated. The sprayer, on the other hand, gives you the firepower to really soak the glue.</li>
<li>Let the paper soak for about 15 minutes and scrape it off with a putty knife.</li>
</ul>
<p>It could take you six hours for an average room, but that’s way better than the days of effort it could take if you don’t know what you’re doing.</p>
<p class="p1 Another option for harnessing the power of H20 is steam.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p class=" p1="" wallpaper="" steamers,="" which="" you="" can="" rent="" from="" home="" improvement="" or="" hardware="" stores,="" are="" effective="" and="" “much="" neater="" [than="" water]="" because="" you’re="" using="" moist="" heat,”="" says="" jason="" stratos,="" owner="" of="" stratos="" painting="" co.="" in="" springfield,="" mass.<=""></p>
<p class="p1 But they can be tough for steamer newbies. They’re bulky and awkward to use (done an upper body workout lately?)&lt;span class=" s1="" and="" it’s="" possible="" to="" burn="" yourself,="" war<="" pan="">ns&nbsp;Gina Paris of Gina Paris Design in Conneaut Lake, Pa.</p>
<p class="p1 So if all this sounds like a hassle, stick with a compression sprayer, which is easier to manage.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p class=" p2="" <strong="">If you &nbsp;have woven grasscloth:factor in the extra, painstaking step of tearing off as much of the top layer as possible to expose the backing first, because “the material rips off in thin, stringy shreds,” says Berry.</p>
<p class="p2 &lt;strong&gt;If wood paneling is underneath:&nbsp;&lt;/strong&gt;they are the one exception to using water, since water and wood don’t mix. In that case, use a gel chemical stripper that won’t penetrate the wood.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;a class=" anchor"="" name="section-887"></p>
<h2>Avoid Chemical Strippers Because of the Fumes</h2>
<p class="p1 If water is so effective, why does stripper exist? Some pros prefer it because stripper dissolves glue faster than water. But it likely emits low-grade VOCs, or toxic chemicals.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p class=" p1="" and="" water="" is="" cheap.="" so="" why="" not="" go="" au="" naturel?="" by="" the="" way,="" if="" you="" use="" stripper,="" pros="" recommend="" dif="" ultra="" concentrate="" (pricing="" varies,="" ranging="" from="" about="" $5="" to="" $35="" online).<=""><a class="anchor" name="section-888"></a></p>
<h2>Don't Try the Fabric Softener Trick — It's a Myth</h2>
<p class="p1 Through the interweb grapevine, you may have heard that fabric softener (diluted with water) is a brag-worthy way to remove old wallpaper. But we couldn’t find a single expert who agrees.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p class=" p1="" “fabric="" softener="" just="" makes="" the="" process="" more="" complicated,="" smelly,="" and="" even="" messier="" than="" using="" plain="" old="" water,”="" says="" berry.="" you="" end="" up="" mixing="" glue="" with="" chemicals="" from="" fabric="" softener.="" in="" addition,="" berry="" may="" harm="" drywall.<=""></p>
<p class="p1 So when it comes to removing wallpaper, the happiest journey (assuming your walls aren’t primed) involves water — and patience.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p class=" p2="" <em="">Christina Hoffmann contributed to this article.</p> - Comments: 0

Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili - 18 Jun 2019 07:10

Tags:

<p>I’m so thankful to have such a great group of mom friends at my son’s school.&nbsp; We hit it off when James started Pre-K3 and he’s in third grade now, so we’ve all really gotten to know each other over the years.&nbsp; About a year ago or so, we put together a Bunco group so that we’d have a standing monthly date on the calendar to get together.&nbsp; You know how it is, unless it’s on the calendar, it’s probably not gonna happen!</p>
<p>If you don’t know, Bunco is an easy to play dice game, but really, it’s a chance for a girls night out sans kids and men with lots of wine! We alternate who hosts and that person serves a main dish and everyone else brings sides and drinks.&nbsp; I’ve been introduced to lots of delicious food at these Bunco nights, and my friend Jamie’s White Chicken Chili was a stand out!</p>
<p>It was so good that of course I begged her for the recipe and went home and made it the next day.&nbsp; Not surprisingly, it was a hit at my house too and the best part is, you can make it in your slow cooker!</p>
<p>With kids heading back to school and Fall almost here, this will be a delicious, easy recipe to have on hand for busy days!</p>
<p>This White Chicken Chili is a simple slow cooker dish with a different spin on a traditional chili because it’s made with healthy chicken breast and white beans! Definitely garnish your chili with some of these toppings (avocado, sour cream, cheese, green onions, and/or a squeeze of lime) to take it to the next level!</p>

<p>The awesome thing about a slow cooker meal is the obvious.&nbsp; You just dump all the ingredients into the pot in the morning, and you have a delicious, piping hot meal ready to go by dinner time.&nbsp; There’s minimal clean up and you didn’t have to spend a lot of time slaving over a hot stove.</p>

<p>You can use a traditional target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;nofollow noopener crock pot&nbsp;or target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;nofollow noopener Instant Pot to make this dish, but my husband upped our slow cooker game by investing in the target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;nofollow noopener Breville Fast/Slow Pro Cooker.</p>

<p>If you’re trying to decide between the&nbsp;target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;nofollow noopener Instant Pot&nbsp;or the&nbsp;target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;nofollow noopener Breville Fast/Slow Pro Cooker, I foundtarget=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;nofollow noopener this review to be the most helpful in comparing them:</p>

<p></p>
<p>For my hubby, I think he wanted what he considered to be the ‘best of the best’ and he preferred the LCD display, so that’s the one we went with. I do actually really like the easy-to read display as well and how easy it is to just turn the dial to customize the Fast/Slow Pro to what you are cooking.&nbsp; It’s also super easy to clean because the inner pot comes out and you can wash it in the sink.</p>

<p>When heading out into the woods for a hike or camping trip, you know you need to bring the basics—a first aid kit, something to start a fire, sunscreen, water and food. But there are a few other things you should pack that will come in handy if you’re out a bit longer than anticipated or something unexpected happens. Here are five items everyone should include in their outdoor gear kit.</p>
<p>Here are 16 camping hacks you’ll wish you knew earlier.</p>
<h3>Illumination</h3>
<p>It’s always smart to bring along a small flashlight or headlamp when you head out into the woods in case a hike takes longer than expected, and darkness falls before you’re back to safety. If you hike with a phone, you can also use the device’s built-in flashlight as a light source.</p>
<p>Look for a lightweight headlamp that is comfortable. target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;noopener noreferrer This headlamp from Kailedi is waterproof, has five modes and the battery life is up to 100,000 hours, so you’ll never be left in the dark.&nbsp;Check out these 15 amazing camping gadgets found on Amazon.</p>
<p>target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;noopener noreferrer Buy a headlamp now on Amazon.</p>
<h3>Whistle</h3>
<p>target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;noopener noreferrer The U.S. Forest Service recommends not going into the woods without some kind of signaling device. They say a whistle is a good choice as it not only can be used as a signaling device if you become lost or separated from your group, but it can also be used to scare off animals. And, it’s small.</p>
<p>target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;noopener noreferrer This whistle can be worn around the neck or hooked on to your pants and is 120 decibels, so it’s easier to hear many than other whistles.</p>
<p>Stay safe in the woods with these 11 camping safety tips.</p>
<h3>Wound Closure Device</h3>
<p>In addition to having a first aid kit as part of your outdoor gear, make sure it includes a wound closure device, such as target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;noopener noreferrer ZipStitch. If you get a deep wound or cut, ZipStitch allows you to close minor lacerations in just seconds with no pain or punctures to the skin and lasts for up to seven days.</p>
<p>Make your own storm survival kit with this guide.</p>

<h3>Waterproof Bag</h3>
<p>A waterproof bag will come in handy when you need to keep wet clothing separate from dry clothing or electronics. target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;noopener noreferrer This waterproof dry bag has a zippered front pocket for easy access and includes a waterproof phone case. “It held my pack filled with two bottles of water, snacks, two cell phones, jacket, small towel, sandals, and some little items like tissues, tube of sunblock and a small portable charger/cord,” said one buyer. “Took it rafting and it held on like a champ! There was water splashing all over and it literally sat in a puddle of water in the raft almost the entire time. Everything was completely dry. No water at all inside!”&nbsp;New to camping? These 15 brilliant hints will come in handy.</p>
<p>target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;noopener noreferrer Buy a waterproof bag now on Amazon </p>
<h3>Bivy Sack or Bivy Tent</h3>
<p>When a trip into the woods takes longer than expected, lightweight gear such as a bivy sack or tent will come in handy, especially if you get stuck in the woods overnight. </p>
<p>“Bivy sack is short for ‘bivouac sack.’ It was invented to serve climbers who wanted lightweight emergency weather protection for sleeping bags during multiple-day ascents, particularly on big walls,” according to target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;noopener noreferrer REI. Think of it as a lightweight sleeping bag. </p>
