Stumbled upon this site the other day when looking for options on laying heated underlayment between a slab and ceramic tile. While that project budget feel short, I am proceeding with a variety other evening and weekend jobs.
My house is about 45 years old and had a major renovation about 25 years ago. Two additions, making a standard rectangle ranch into an H ranch (extended garage, new master bedroom, new spare bed and new family room).
I have 3 new furnaces being installed next week. Payed about $6K for all three, and will get $1500 in tax credit. So $1500/each was a deal I couldn't pass up. My existing furnaces are 24 yrs old and only about 60% efficent.
Other then that I am removing wallpaper in my kitchen, with the help of some DIF, it isn't too bad.
Also tiling a bedroom and doing some wiring.
I can see me using this site often, looking for everybody's valuable input...
Clothes taking longer to dry?
Clean the dryer screen in HOT water if using fabric softener sheets.
They leave a residue that impedes air-flow, costing you money.
Clean the ducting in the last six months? 17,000 dryer fires annually!
