I installed a stackable washer and dryer downstairs. I was scooting it back againsy the wall and thought I could get it closer if I got one of those 90 degree dryer vent fittings. I got one, under $5, and it was worse than the curving the flexible dryer vent without the 90 degree fitting.So I’m not using the fitting. Can’t really take it back, the shrink wrap package is destroyed. It’s not the kind of thing that I’d want laying around forever, I’ll probably just throw it away.
Had a ceiling fan go bad, the speed control quit working, one speed, dead slow. The fan was barely out of warranty. I just got a new fan. I can easily see the little black box that is the speed controller. Is it worth my while to remove the part, spend a day searching to see if a replacement is available? Even if it is available, it the cost of the part going to be a low enough percentage of the cost of the fan to be worth it? Do I want a spare ceiling fan sitting around, waiting for one of the others to fail? I’ll probably just throw it away or give it away.
Seems like wasting money is the best choice in too many situations.
Friday here, looking forward to a no alarm clock couple of days. Have a good weekend!
