    FYI, you should check the rating of thenT-stat. It may not be rated to handle two 8' electric baseboard units. Also, you cannot connect the two 8' units in series. The non-digital T-stats only...

    We're all guessing here and several of us have given you some decent ideas. All I would say is if you can't get the HO's to decide on what they want to ultimately do then take the lease expensive...

    Too many unknowns here. At some point in time you'll have to make up your mind as to what type of gen-set you'll be installing. Others have given you some ideas as to what type of system to...

    That's interesting. What would be the thought behind the design decision to make a combo unit run on 120 rather than 240 ? Why not make them all run on 120 ? It only takes up one breaker space not...

    Just to clarify and make sure we're all on the same page, the ground rods are the supplement to the water main ground. And, if you have a CEE you don't need the rods.

    No one is trying to "get around" this Code issue but, you are correct. The easiest way "around" the discussion of this issue is to just spend the $12.00 + a few minutes time, install a second rod...
