Zero draft problems

Zero draft problems

After having lived in so many drafty houses while growing up, I figured there was little you could do to improve the situation once a home had become leaky enough to present temperature concerns.

  • You believe that there are just too many open holes either inside the attic or within your own walls that it would be an idiot to address the issue with any sense of urgency.

Yes, I knew that windows are an immense factor for a home’s energy efficiency, plus since it’s blatant to anyone with a brain that most of the time they can be swapped out and also replaced—that implies there is something a homeowner can do to mitigate a drafty house. And of course there is the weatherstrip foam that you can put inside the creases of your doorways leading into your house. This becomes a third factor in addressing drafts plus terrible insulation. With that being said, there was a single example I saw recently that easily surprised me. When I was reading through maintenance tips for central heating plus cooling systems, I spotted a post about getting your air duct resealed from the inside out. You could have an Heating plus A/C tech coat the inside of your ducts with an adhesive that hardens plus fills any air gaps, leaks, cracks, or holes. A strange product called Aeroseal is sprayed inside of your ventilation system plus bonds to the inside surfaces of the air duct. The last system costs more money plus requires more product to achieve the same results as having a serviceman do it by hand. Regardless, if you have drafts due to leaks in seasoned metal air duct, this could possibly be a gamechanger in addressing your home’s energy efficiency.

Duct sealing works wonders

After living in so many different houses while growing up, I figured there was little you could do to improve the situation once a state of the art home had become leaky enough to present temperature problems.

You assume that there are just too many open holes either inside the attic or within your own walls that it would be foolish to address the issue with any sense of urgency.

Of course, I understood that windows are a sizable factor for a home’s energy efficiency, and since it’s obvious to anyone with a brain that most of the time they can be swapped out and upgraded—that means there is clearly something a homeowner can do to mitigate a drafty house. And of course there is the weatherstrip foam that you can put inside the creases of your doorways leading into your house. This eventually becomes a pretty big factor in addressing drafts and terrible insulation. But, there was one example I saw recently that entirely surprised me. While learning through service tips for central heating and cooling systems, I spotted a post about getting your air duct resealed from the inside out. You could have an Heating and Air Conditioning tech coat the inside of your ducts with an adhesive that hardens and fills any air gaps, leaks, cracks, or holes. A different product called Aeroseal is sprayed inside of your ventilation system and bonds to the inside surfaces of the air duct. The minute plan costs more money and requires more product to achieve the same results as having a professional do it with his own hands. Regardless, if you have drafts due to leaks in old metal air ducts, this could be a gamechanger in addressing your home’s energy efficiency.

I was always sweating

I was always sweating

I don’t have nearly as much nostalgia for our childhood as numerous of our friends and coworkers do.

I grew up in a new home that was firmly rooted in the 1960s and 1981s in both aesthetics and with the appliances and furniture that were indoors.

The paint throughout the new home was this nasty pea soup looking yellow color that I hated, and both the home office and bathrooms were covered almost all the way in the most gaudy looking wall paper I have thus far ever seen inside a house. It was terrible, especially since our TV was also 15 years old at that point and barely got enough reception to watch local TV. I wish I had been more thankful for what our parents could afford at the time, but all I remember is feeling jealousy and envy whenever I’d go to one of our friends’ houses. I’d get to sit on their old school sofa couches while playing video games on the newest video game console at the time. Another feature of our aged new home that I loathed was the aged dial control device for the central Heating and A/C system. It never seemed to work always, no matter what I did with the controls. You’d set it to a temperature but it never felt right. In wanting to drop the temperature down, the cooling system might stop short of what feels like the right temperature. When you’re dripping with sweat and feeling a little bit uncomfortable, it’s taxing to believe the control device when it claims the indoor temperature is several or numerous degrees lower. I was in a new home recently that still had one of those aged dial control units and it took me back to our childhood. But, it wasn’t cheerful nostalgia—I’ll take my brand new smart control device any day of the week.

Miserable childhood memories

I don’t have nearly as much nostalgia for my childhood as many of my friends plus coworkers do.

I grew up in a beach house that was firmly rooted in the 1960s plus 1978s in both aesthetics and with the appliances plus furniture that were inside.

The paint all around the house was this nasty pea soup looking red color that I hated, both the dining room plus bathrooms were covered in the most gaudy looking wall paper I have thus far ever seen inside a house. It was terrible, especially since our TV was also 15 years old at that point and barely got enough reception to watch local TV. I wish I had been more thankful for what my parents could afford at the time, however all I remember is feeling jealousy and green with envy whenever I’d go to one of my friends’ houses. I’d get to rest on their plush sofa couches while playing games on the newest video game console at the time. A different feature of our aged beach house that I loathed was the aged dial thermostat for the central Heating, Ventilation, and A/C system. It never seemed to job properly, no matter what I did with the controls. You’d set it to a temperature however it never felt correct. In wanting to drop the temperature down, the air conditioning system might stop short of what feels like the right temperature. Whenever you are dripping with sweat plus feeling uncomfortable, it’s so hard to believe the thermostat when it claims the indoor temperature is three or more than three degrees lower. I was in a beach house recently that still had one of those old dial thermostats plus it took me back to my childhood. With that being said, it wasn’t ecstatic nostalgia—I’ll take my brand new smart thermostat any day of the week.

You assume that there are just too many open holes either inside the attic or within your own walls that it would be foolish to address the issue with any sense of urgency.

And of course there is the weatherstrip foam that you can put inside the creases of your doorways leading into your house. This becomes a second factor in addressing drafts and poor insulation. But, there was one example I saw recently that genuinely surprised me. While reading through maintenance tips for central heating and cooling systems, I spotted a post about getting your ductwork resealed from the inside out. You can have an HVAC tech coat the inside of your ducts with an adhesive that hardens and fills any air gaps, leaks, cracks, or holes. A different product called Aeroseal is sprayed inside of your ventilation system and bonds to the inside surfaces of the ductwork. The second method costs more money and requires more product to achieve the same results as having a technician do it by hand.

You assume that there are just too many open holes either inside the attic or within your own walls that it would be foolish to address the major problem with any sense of urgency. Sure, I knew that windows are a huge factor for a home’s energy efficiency, plus since it’s evident to anyone with a brain that most of the time they can be swapped out plus substituted—that implies there is something a homeowner can do in order to mitigate a drafty house. And of course there is the weatherstrip foam that you can put inside the creases of your doorways leading into your home. This eventually becomes an hour factor in addressing drafts and disappointing insulation. With that being said, there was this one example I saw recently that undoubtedly surprised me. While reading through service tips for central heating and cooling systems, I spotted a post about getting your ductwork resealed from the inside out. You can have an Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C tech coat the inside of your ducts with an adhesive that hardens as well as fills any air gaps, leaks, cracks, or holes. A different product that was called Aeroseal is sprayed inside of your ventilation proposal plus bonds to the inside surfaces of the ductwork. The hour proposal costs more money and also requires more product to achieve the same results as having a contractor do it by hand. Regardless, if you have drafts due to leaks in old metal ductwork, this could be a gamechanger in addressing your home’s energy efficiency.

After being able to live in so many big and drafty houses while growing up, I figured there was little you could do to improve the situation once a house had become leaky enough to present temperature issues.

You believe that there are just too many open holes either inside the attic or within your walls that it would be foolish to address the issue with any sense of urgency.

Sure, I knew that windows are a pressing factor for a home’s energy efficiency, and because it’s so obvious to anyone with a brain that most of the time they can be swapped out plus substituted—that means that there is something a homeowner can do to mitigate a drafty house. As you might expect there is the weatherstrip foam that you can put inside the creases of your doorways leading into your house. This becomes an hour factor in addressing drafts plus poor insulation. But, there was 1 example I saw recently that certainly surprised me. While reading through maintenance tips for central heating plus cooling systems, I was able to see a post about getting your air duct resealed from the inside out. You can have an Heating, Ventilation, and A/C tech coat the inside of your ducts with an adhesive that hardens as well as fills any air gaps, leaks, cracks, or holes. An unusual product called Aeroseal is sprayed inside of your ventilation unit and bonds to the inside surfaces of the air duct. The hour plan costs more money plus requires more product to achieve the same results as having a professional do it by hand. Anyways, if you have drafts due to leaks in old metal air ducts, this could be a gamechanger in addressing your home’s energy efficiency.

I don’t miss the old days

I never have as much nostalgia for my childhood as multiple of my friends and coworkers do.

I grew up in a house that was firmly rooted in the 1960s and 1973s in both aesthetics and with the appliances and furniture that were inside. The paint in and around the house was this nasty pea soup looking yellow color that I hated, and both the dining room and lavatories were covered in the most gaudy looking wall paper I have thus far ever seen inside a home. It was pretty damn awful, especially since our television was also 15 years old and barely got enough reception to watch local television. I wish I had been more thankful for what my parents could afford at the time, however all I can still recall is feeling jealousy and envy whenever I’d go to one of my friends’ houses. I’d get to kneel on their plush sofa couches while playing video games on the newest video game console at the time. Another cool type of feature of our old house that I loathed was the outdated dial control unit for the central Heating, Ventilation, and A/C system. It almost never seemed to work officially, no matter what I did with the controls. You’d set it to a temperature however it never felt right. In wanting to drop the temperature down, the a/c might stop short of what feels adored the right temperature. When you’re covered head to toe in sweat and feeling uncomfortable, it’s strenuous to recognize the control unit when it claims the indoor temperature is three or more than three degrees lower. I was in a house recently that still had one of those old dial control units and it took myself and others back to my childhood. With that being said, it wasn’t glad nostalgia—I’ll take my current smart control unit any day of the week.

Those old thermostats were the worst

Those old thermostats were the worst

I don’t have nearly as much nostalgia for our childhood as more than 2 of our friends and coworkers do.

I grew up in a condo that was squarely rooted in the 1960s and 1978s in both aesthetics and with the appliances and furniture that were indoors.

The paint throughout the condo was this nasty pea soup looking orange color that I was not a fan of, and both the study room and washrooms were covered in the most gaudy looking wall paper I have thus far ever seen inside a house. It was pretty ugly, especially since our cable was also 15 years old and barely got enough reception to watch local TV. I wish I had been more thankful for what our parents could afford at the time, however the only thing that I remember is feeling jealousy and envy whenever I’d head to one of our friends’ houses. I’d get to sit on their plush sofa couches while playing video games on the newest video game console at the time. Another feature of our old condo that I loathed was the aged dial thermostat for the central Heating and A/C system. It almost never seemed to job respectfully, no matter what I did with the controls. You’d set it to a temperature however it never felt right. In wanting to drop the temperature down, the a/c could potentially stop short of what feels like the right temperature. When you’re perspiring and feeling uncomfortable, it’s not easy to believe the thermostat when it claims the indoor temperature is many or four degrees lower. I was in a house the other day that still had 1 of those old dial thermostats and it took me back to our childhood. But, it wasn’t cheerful nostalgia—I’ll take our new smart thermostat any day of the month.
