  • my car makes a loud humming noise?

    I just got my tires rotated at Jiffy Lube, moved the front ones which I just bought 6-8 months ago to the back and the back ones to the front. Now I hear a loud humming noise especially when accelerating on the interstate. It stays loud while I'm driving at a steady speed and also as I start to slow down. What is the problem?

  • What will be the best HVAC deal?

    I have finally narrowed my decision down to this one contractor. I am going to do a Goodman Heat pump with a back up gas furnace(my house is under wired to do electric back up). I would like some advice on which to choose

    option 1

    14 SEER heat pump with 80% AFUE furnace and 4" media filter

    price after ameren rebate and tax credit $3946

    option 2

    same as option 1 but with a 95% AFUE furnace

    price after ameren, laclede, and tax credit $4268

    I think I might as well spend a few hundred more to get the better furnace. It will look better when selling. So my main question I can uprgrade to a 16 SEER heat pump after all rebates for an additional $556. The guy said it would only save me about 10% more in my utilities so it probably wouldn't be worth it to spend the extra to upgrade but I was just curious if that would he better. I will probably only be in the house for another 5-10 years but that isn't for sure. It could be a little longer.

  • What HVAC system is best?

    I can't believe how stressful this has been. I have gotten several quotes, but I have narrowed it down to just a few options. I need all the advice I can get. I live in St. Louis, MO so our weather around here is unpredictable. My house is somewhere between 1600 and 1800 sq. ft including my partially finished basement. Heat pump? Or should I stick with gas?

    The first two options are from the same contractor

    option 1

    14 seer Amana heat pump 10 yr parts and labor

    $4879 (subtract $850 ameren instant rebate and $1463.70 tax credit)=$2565.30

    option 2

    Goodman 16 seer AC BTUH cooling 36,000(3 ton?) SSX16036 and 95% AFUE BTUH heating 70,000 GMV950704C dual stage compressor and gas valve and new energy star setback thermostat 10 yr parts and labor

    $6769 ( subtract $850 ameren instant rebate $175 laclede gas furnace and thermostat rebate and $1500 tax credit)=$4244

    option 3 (different contractor)

    American Standard 16 seer 2.5 ton and 95% AFUE gas furnace with programmable thermostat and new return air boot 10yr parts 5 yr labor

    $7019( subtract $850 ameren instant rebate, $250-$500 American standard rebate, $175 laclede furnace and thermostat rebate, $1500 tax credit)=$4244 or $3994

    Both contractors have good reviews and good BBB score with 100% money back guarantee

    Also, the 2nd contractor (American Standard) said the Goodman(from option 2) wouldn't qualify for the $1500 tax credit because the AC is a 3 ton which doesn't match correctly with the furnace and there was proof on some website he could show me. When I asked the Goodman contractor about this, he said that yes it does qualify and he could send me the link. I just don't know who to believe.

  • Do I really need a permit to get HVAC system installed?

    I know someone in the business who might install one for me for pretty cheap. Do I really have to get apermit if I know he'll install it up to code? Will I get in trouble when I go to sell or will I be fine as long as it's up to code?

  • How can I fix my netgear wireless router?

    I have a netgear wirless router and DSL. I have been having trouble with my internet and have called my ISP several times and they try different things and then it starts working. But then it seems to stop again soon afterwards. I know it has to be the router because when I plug the ethernet cable from the modem directly into my laptop, my internet works perfectly. Does anyone have a clue what might be wrong? thanks! And yes, I have tried all the tricks of turning things off, unplugging, and turning back on one at a time. I appreciate any helpful answers!

  • how to fix my netgear wireless router?

    I have been having trouble with my internet, and I think i figured out the source of the problem. I believe it is my wireless router because when i plug the modem directly to my laptop, it works fine. I have tried turning off the router and restarting it and my computer but it is still intermittent with my internet working. It will work for a few minutes and then stop. Every now and then a message will come up saying another computer with the same IP address is trying to use it, but I am only using one computer. Any suggestions on how to fix? I really don't want to pay netgear phone service or the geek squad over a $100 if it's a simple fix. Other wise I might as well just buy a new router. Please help! thanks!

  • can i plug a power strip into a surge protector?

    My parents just bought a 32" sharp lcd tv and a FlatScreen PowerCenter™ HTS 200 with Clean Power™ Stage 1 v.2.0 surge protector.

    It only has two plug ins and it takes up the whole outlet, but my parents have 3 things to plug in (tv, dvd player, vcr). Would it be ok to plug in a small power strip in the one outlet for the dvd and vcr as long as they plug in the tv to the outlet that says tv? They are mainly concerned about the protection of the tv. Or will that hurt the tv protection by doing that?
