We have an almost square house. Toward the garage are 2 bedrooms, 1 bath and laundry room. They are probably 15 degrees colder when the A/C is on. Meanwhile, the master bed and bath and the kitchen and living room are very warm. Help, we have tried closing vents, (still cold) stuffing towels in the vents to partially block...nothing seems to work. The house is 10 yrs old.
Our triple-car garage in Ogden, Utah, faces west. Even with ceiling and wall insulation it gets really hot in the summer and really cold in the winter. We'd be happy with around 83 degrees in the summer and 50 degrees in the winter. Would it be more cost-effective to install through-the-wall heating and cooling units or to purchase insulated garage doors?
I want to replace the windows along the front of the house. The rooms are the kitchen, living room, dining room, and a master bedroom. I don't understand the ratings on the tag and whether I need the most expensive ones in the store. Can you suggest a way to get windows that save on heating bills without having to use our entire remodeling budget?
