re: 5G= less reliable? - WavinWilly
Who are you with? T-Mobile is the only one that has some form of 5G widely deployed. Verizon has a few blocks of cities covered with their mmWave and AT&T may as well. AT&T’s 5Ge BS is just LTE-A that got marketed as something else. The other carriers just called that LTE. ...

re: Experiences with whole home generators - WavinWilly
[quote]I'm in The Woodlands and strongly considering getting this set up. Mind me asking the cost? Wife is pregnant and although we were never in that bad of shape, I'd prefer to be more prepared in the future since we deal with power outages for storms, but don't expect to need to evacuate much.[/q...

re: Experiences with whole home generators - WavinWilly
Mine just ran for two days straight in Houston. Brand new (less than a month old) Generac 24 KW air cooled on natural gas. Had absolutely zero issues. Kept me warm and was able to continue living like normal. Every 24 hours of continuous run you are supposed to shut it down and check the oil lev...

re: Google Nest Protect - WavinWilly
I can’t recommend any nest products. Google has a bad habit of randomly dropping support for them. The fact that they never integrated it with the security system they just discontinued would make me even more leery. I have the nest thermostats and like them but google makes me nervous. ETA ...
