008- I investigated some rusty spots on certain components of the Moloneys' furnace and discovered the humidifier was defunct. The power to it had been cut off, but the decrepit unit had been left in place by the previous owners. It was falling off the ductwork and allowing cooled (or heated) air to escape into the basement. So we went shopping and got some sheet metal, screws, tools, etc. Above the old unit and to the right of my face you can see the two patches I made and installed. Problem solved!
