Hypothetically speaking, do you think you have a better chance of refining your own 89 octane gasoline or coming up with 120vac?

Definitely not worth trying to do insulation yourself - the blow in guys are cheap and effective. Like $500-900 to do your whole house and they’ll be in an out in an hour.

Sounds to me like something is leaking power to ground - and if your living room fan is acting up, I’d make that suspect #1.
