    I currently have 3 outlets in the kitchen. each wall has one, one wall does not. The kitchen is very small. I would say 7 feet by 7 feet(roughly). I want to install one under the sink for the garbage disposal. I was reading that you can have up to 13 outlets on a 20amp, does a garbage disposal take up a lot of juice? So the outlet itself would be 3 feet from other outlets but under the sink. Is this okay? Also, installing an on and off switch for the disposal wouldn't have to be a certain distance from anything would it?

It's not a bad leak, but it is dripping about every two minutes when the water is running. (it's not like a "turn the spigot" to stop the leak. It's more along the lines of "it's leaking from the pipe connection points") Am I responsible for contacting a plumber or do I call the city water department and have them come out and fix it?

However I do have my electric blanket plugged into it for a few hours but then I unplug it every time when I'm done warming up my bed. The maintenance man told me its my electric blanket causing the outlet to heat up but it was warm before I plugged it in. Plus the plug hasn't been in outlet for over a week. Also my blanket is the only thing that is plugged into the outlet.

  • Should you close vents in the attic during winter?

    Silly question from a 1st time home owner. I know attics need ventilation but should they be closed up to keep out as much cold from getting inside.
