Electricians are arrived at the house at about 8:00AM. Told me it’d be about four hours to install the 240-volt from the circuit breaker panel to the outdoor heat-pump. They were done a touch past 10:00AM.
I turned the Nest thermostat, which drives the oil burner, down to 58F and ran around setting the head-units to 66F.… Read the rest

The covers on the channels are a great sign. These are paintable, so we’ll be shopping for some grey paint come Spring. They put a vacuum on the line-sets and they are all sound, so they charged and primed the system.… Read the rest

My basement temperature and humidity sensor has been up and running for 2.5 years now with hardly a hiccup at all. But, it is time for an upgrade.
I’ve made some tweaks to the page over the years, but I ‘ve grown less and less happy with the matplotlib implementation.… Read the rest
Been one hell of a 21 months since my mother died. This is sure to leave a mark. My sister is my new hero, but this has all taken a toll on her. We got him home from the hospital with, literally, hours to go.… Read the rest
Really, I used this just as a guide to update the Unifi controller in the Docker container. You could do that a time or two before it gets simple, which it is. Just a new way of doing things, I guess.… Read the rest
