We had to install dampers to address our air flow problems

The Summer months are really frustrating for me and my wife in this old house.

While we’re subjected to endless chilly drafts during the Winter season, we also experience much of the same concerns with heat during the Summertime.

The two of us live in a warmer region anyway, which gives our rickety old Heating, Ventilation plus A/C method an uphill battle from the very beginning. On top of that, our attic is poorly insulated plus we have old crank-style windows throughout the whole house. As far as energy efficiency goes, our home could use a huge overhaul. Recently, we decided to have our HVAC serviceman inspect our house plus our central Heating, Ventilation plus A/C method to see if there were any improvements we could make before we got the cash to install new windows plus add insulation to the drafty attic. To our surprise, our HVAC serviceman explained that a lot of the terrible air quality in our house was largely because we had poorly designed ductwork. A lot of air was escaping the vents closest to our cooling system, with the farthest vents getting the least amount of chilly air. At last, we finally understood why our living rooms on the far end of the house were way hotter. We feared that this meant we needed new ductwork altogether. With the high costs, we thought we couldn’t remedy the problem. Thankfully, all we needed were a few dampers placed within the ductwork in strategic places to help push the air further down the ventilation method before it escaped out right next to our air handler. These dampers have made a vast difference in the air quality in our house.

I installed dampers to my ducts for better airflow

Each winter is miserable for me in this old house.

While I’m subjected to endless hot and humid drafts during the summer, I experience much of the same problems with chilly air during the winter.

I live in a cool climate to begin with, which gives my antique HVAC plan an uphill battle to contend with from the beginning. On top of this, my attic isn’t insulated well, and there are old crank-style windows all throughout the house. Energy efficiency doesn’t exist in my home. Recently, I made the decision to have my HVAC technician inspect my house and my central HVAC equipment to see if there were any improvements that could be made before I paid money to install new windows along with additional insulation to my drafty attic. Shockingly, my HVAC technician explained that a lot of the horrible air quality in my house was because of the poorly designed HVAC duct. There was a lot of air escaping the vents closest to my air conditioning system, with the farthest vents receiving the least amount of warm air. At last, I finally understood why my bedroom on the farthest end of my house never got enough heat. I feared that this meant I needed to install new HVAC ducts altogether. With the pricey costs, I said I couldn’t remedy the problem. Thankfully, I just needed a few dampers to go inside the HVAC ducts in strategic locations to assist pushing the warm air further down the ventilation plan before it all escaped out right next to the air handler. These dampers have really helped with the air quality in my house.

I had to install dampers to solve my air flow problems

Every Summer is a horrible experience for me in this outdated house.

While I’m subjected to an endless amount of chilly drafts during the Winter months, I experience much of the same issues, except with heat during the summer months.

We have a warm temperature to begin with here. This means my ancient, outdated Heating & A/C system has a hard time each year. On top of this, my attic is poorly insulated, along with outdated crank-style windows throughout the entire house. As far as energy efficiency goes, my old house could use some big changes. Recently, I decided to have the heating and cooling professional inspect my house and my central Heating & A/C system to see if there were any improvements that could be made before I invested in new windows and insulation to my drafty attic. To my astonishment, my heating and cooling professional explained that a lot of the drafty air quality in my home was largely due to the poorly designed ductwork. There was too much air was escaping the vents closest to my cooling system, with the vents farther away getting little to no cool air. At last, I finally understood why some of the bedrooms on the far end of my house were much warmer. I feared that this meant I would need all new ductwork altogether. With the high costs, I was anxious about the problem. Thankfully, all I needed were some dampers to put inside the ductwork in strategic locations to help move the air further down the ventilation system before it escaped out right next to the air handler. These dampers have made a great difference in the air quality in my house.

I needed to install dampeners to fix my air flow problems

I find each Summer to be miserable in my house.

While I’m subjected to endless chilly drafts during the cooler months, I experience much of the same with humidity and heat during the summertime.

I live in a warm climate to begin with, which gives my rickety old Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C unit an uphill battle to contend with from the beginning. On top of this, my attic is poorly insulated, along with the old crank-style windows throughout the entire house. As far as energy efficiency is concerned, this house could use a total makeover. Recently, I decided to have the heating and cooling specialist inspect my house along with the central Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C unit to see if any improvements could be made before I made any major decisions. Surprisingly, my heating and cooling specialist explained that most of the terrible air quality inside my house was largely because of the poorly designed HVAC ductwork. There was a lot of air escaping the vents closest to the a/c unit, with the vents farthest away getting the least amount of cool air. I finally understood why my kitchen on the far end of the home felt extremely hot all the time. I feared that this meant I’d need an up-to-date duct system. With the high costs, I didn’t know how to remedy the problem. Thankfully, all I needed were a few dampers to put inside the ductwork in strategic locations, which would help push the air further down the ventilation unit before it all escaped out by the air handler. These dampeners have made a fantastic difference in the air quality inside this house.

Every summer is miserable for me in my old house.

While I am subjected to endless cold drafts during the winter season, I experience much of the same with heat during the summertime.

We have a warm climate to begin with. This gives my rickety old HVAC system an uphill battle to contend with from the start. On top of that, my attic is poorly insulated and I have old crank-style windows throughout my house. As far as energy efficiency is concerned, my house could use a large modelling project for sure. Recently, I decided to have my heating and cooling technician inspect my house and my central HVAC system to see if any improvements could be made before I get the money saved to install new windows and add insulation to my drafty attic. To my surprise, my heating and cooling technician explained that a lot of the poor air quality in my house was largely in part due to poorly designed ductwork. Too much air was escaping the vents closest to the air conditioner, with the farthest vents getting the least amount of cool air. At last, I finally understood why the bedrooms on the far end of the house feel like the hottest areas of the entire house. I feared that this meant I needed new ductwork altogether. With the high costs, I worried I couldn’t remedy the problem. Thankfully, all I needed were a few dampeners placed inside the ductwork in strategic locations to help push the air further down the ventilation system before it all escapes out right next to the air handler. These dampeners have made a massive difference in the air quality in my house.

My parents needed to modify their new ranchers central HVAC unit

It’s a very exciting time for my parents at the moment.

  • They’ve been desperately searching for a house to call home for the last six months.

It got so dangerously close to them having to rent something, that it gives me a headache just considering it. The housing market has easily rebounded for them though. They thought that they could find a small rancher home for $150k, although they couldn’t find anything less than $220k. There were a few houses that popped up on the market at random times, which somehow fit their budget, but each apartment ended up being way below reasonable standards. They told me that there were electricity and plumbing issues, because the homes were all built over twenty years ago, which is downright inexcusable. So when they found a home for $147k and saw the great condition it was in, they knew they had to pull the trigger. The only thing they’re doing now is making a handful of last minute modifications before they move in. After they install a new refrigerator, they’re going to begin working with a local Heating & Air Conditioning company. They want to install a new air handler. They’re going to move it from the crawl place above the master room and put it where they can access it from their kitchen. My parents didn’t want to get a ton of dust on their bedding and clothing every time they want to climb up to change the filter with a new one. Their new Heating & Air Conditioning serviceman also said that moving the air handler would help their employees access whenever they swung by for services or repairs. Once everything is finished, they’ll be moving into the perfect rancher. It’s difficult to contain the excitement.

My brother needed to modify his lake house’s HVAC equipment

It’s an absolutely exciting time for my brother.

He’s been desperately searching for a lake home to buy for the last several months.

It got really close to him having to sign another year-long lease with his apartment complex, that it gives him a headache just thinking about it. The housing market has finally rebounded in his favor though. He thought that he could find a sufficient lake house for $150k, but he couldn’t find anything less than $200k. There were a few lake houses that came up on the market at random times that somehow fit his budget, but each home ended up needing extreme work. He said the electricity plus plumbing wasn’t up to code in houses that were built over thirty years ago, which is downright scary. When he found a lake home for $140k plus saw the condition it was in, he knew he had to make an offer quickly. The only thing he’s handling now is making a handful of last minute modifications before he can move in. After he installs an up-to-date dishwasher, he’s legitimately working with a local Heating plus Air Conditioning corporation to install an up-to-date air handler in the lake house. He’s going to transfer it from the crawl space above the master bedroom plus put it where he can access it from his living room. He doesn’t want to get a ton of dust on his bedding plus clothing every time he wants to climb up to replace an air filter. His up-to-date Heating plus Air Conditioning serviceman also explained that by moving the air handler, it would help them a lot with ease of access whenever they visit for repairs or maintenance. Once everything is completed, he’ll be moving into his dream lake house. It’s strenuous to contain the excitement.

She needs to modify her new home’s central HVAC system

It’s a particularly exciting time for my sister.

She’s been desperately searching for a new home to buy for the last several months.

It got super close to her having to sign another year-long lease that it gives her a headache to think about it. The housing market has rebounded in her favor at least. She thought that she could find a sufficient home for $155k, despite the fact that she couldn’t find anything less than $250k. There were a few houses that came up on the market at random times that miracuously fit her budget, however each home ended up being far below sufficient standards. She said the electricity and plumbing were not up to code in these houses, because they were all built over twenty years ago, which is downright inexcusable. So when she found a home for $145k and saw the condition it was in, she knew she had to pull the trigger. The only thing she’s dealing with now, is making a few last minute modifications before she moves in. After she installs a new dishwasher, she’s going to work with a local HVAC contractor to install a new air handler inside the house. She’s going to transport it from the crawl area above her kitchen and put it where she can access it from the living room. She doesn’t like the idea of getting a ton of dust on her counter and in her food every time she wants to climb up to change the filter out. Her new HVAC specialist also explained that moving the air handler would help their HVAC technicians a lot with ease of access whenever they did services or repairs. Once everything is finished, she’ll be moving into her first ever condominium. It’s tough to contain her excitement.

I need to modify my condo’s central HVAC system

It’s an entirely exciting time for me right now.

I’ve been desperately searching for a condo to purchase for the last several weeks.

It’s gotten so dangerously close to signing another lease for a year that it gives me a headache just considering it. The housing market has entirely rebounded in my area, thankfully. I thought that I’d find a sufficient, several room condo for $150 thousand, however I couldn’t find anything less than $200 thousand. There were a few condos that popped up on the market at random times, but each condo ended up being far below livable standards. I’m talking about electricity plus plumbing not being safe to use, and condos built in the last twenty years. This is downright inexcusable. So, when I discovered a condo for $140 thousand plus saw the condition it was in, I jumped at the opportunity. The only thing I am dealing with now is making a handful of minor modifications before I move in. After I install a brand new dishwasher, I’ll start working with a local Heating & Air Conditioning supplier to install a brand new air handler in the condo. We’re going to transport it from the crawl space above my master room to the living room. I don’t like the concept of getting a ton of dust on my bedding plus clothing whenever I climb up to change the air filter out. My new Heating & Air Conditioning specialist also explained that moving my air handler would help their company out when it comes to maintenance or repairs in the future. Once everything is done, I’ll be moving into my first ever condo. It’s hard to contain my excitement.

I needed to modify my new condo’s central HVAC system

It’s a really exciting time for me.

  • I have been desperately searching for a home to buy for the last eight months.

It got so dangerously close to me having to sign another year-long lease that it gives me a headache just thinking about it. The housing market has definitely rebounded in my area at least. I thought that I could find a reasonable two bedroom house for $150k, but I couldn’t find anything less than $200k. There were a few that popped up on the market at random times that somehow fit my budget, but each house ended up being far below reasonable standards. I’m talking about electricity and plumbing not being up to code in houses all built in the last twenty years, which is downright inexcusable.
