I have a 1950's ranch that does not have central heat and air. I would like a ballpark figure for installation. It has an attic (which is pretty much fully floored and great for storage) and a crawl space which you do crawl in to navigate it (don't know if there is enough room for ductwork in there). Currently it has a hot water system and registers to heat the house (there is gas to heat the water). I don't know if a gas system (since there is already gas available) would be best and more cost efficient or if an electrical system for air and heat is best. I would also need ductwork installed. Thank you
It's a damp climate here in Norfolk. The basement smells of mildew, even after we open a few windows for ventilation. How do I know it's not the beginning of a serious black mold problem? What would it cost to bring in a professional to dry it out and put in a sealant?
I don't know the brand of decking as we just bought the house and this is our first winter here. The composite material used in our deck makes loud cracking sounds, like a rifle shot, when the temp is below zero. This happens with no set frequency - sometimes twice an hour for a few hours, or maybe not at all for a whole day. What is causing this, and more importantly, is this affecting the soundness of the deck? What can we do to fix this? Thank you!
