I have casement windows so my venting options are very limited. I picked out a temporary spot so I can vent through the chimney until I can make more permanent plans. I was all set to go with a grounded outlet right next to the fireplace. Well, I just used that yellow tester thing that nice folks here recommended (in the pic) and my “grounded” outlet isn’t really grounded… son of a%#*$^ I have truly grounded outlets in other rooms that I’ll have to use. (The closest one is in the laundry room so I’m assuming it’s on the same circuit?)
Electrical stuff makes me nervous so I’m just double checking to make sure I’m tackling this correctly. I know an extension cord isn’t a good solution and I found where @dan said you could replace the power cord with a longer one instead.
I found the below cord that I can hopefully use?
Someone had recommended a surge protector as well so I previously bought the one pictured. (The yellow thing is the grounding tester.) Hopefully the longer cord and surge protector will work. While my setup aint going to be pretty, I’d settle for just getting it running safely at this point
On a side note, it’s been +110 degrees here and 4 days ago my air went out. During those four days I had a dog that decided she should come in season. Between the sickening heat, no sleep, an unexpected $6,500 bill and three very frustrated, obnoxious male dogs, I’m a bit fragile right now lol. Good news is I have a new AC and furnace and hopefully a new GF coming that’ll lift my spirits
