    I've had 2 companies come out in the past year for a 5 yr old unit. Both companies stated the piston may have been stuck as the first time a problem arose I had so much water coming out of the indoor handler and onto the floor. Company blew that out, refilled with freon and it was fine all...

    Inside the door of my refrigerator (a top freezer model), the plastic surface just above the shelves is constantly wet these days. My house is air conditioned and my inside humidity is under control. Yet the inside of the door has a lot of condensation all of the time. The fridge is an...

    I had my gas furnace tuned. The tech removed a flexible tubing that looked like it had been hand made - it was bigger on one end than the other. It was hanging from one end but had apparently been attached. He put a yellow cap on the end that was dripping and said the water would flow down...

The room is 15' x 26' with 3' side walls on the long side and a 12/12 pitch on the ceiling. The walls and ceiling,all the way to the...

    Hi Everyone, Newbie here... I live in Southeast Indiana, have a 40y/o ranch home. A few years ago I noticed in our bedrooms at one end of the house we are getting condensation on the interior walls in the winter, mostly up in the outside corners. Our furnace is at one end and the bedrooms the...

    Hello! I have an addition on my house that was once a patio. They decided to box it in but leave the roof exposed/un-insulated. It is also un-ventilated without any central air and only a fireplace to heat it. I was looking to insulate that room to keep it warmer in the winter so I had a...

    I have a solarium that was framed with alumina beams (6 x 9 cm, hollow inside). In very cold (Canadian ...) nights, humidity will condensate or even freeze from outside to the beams, but only in some locations. Evidently, the foam insulation which was manually inserted into the beams during...

    Hi everyone, After receiving some rather outrageous prices from a local HVAC place, I've decided to fix my parent's HVAC on my own. I've repaired a number of appliances and work with computers, so while I'm no expert on HVAC, I'm not an idiot at dealing with things like this. The repair guy...

    I have a condensation and drip page problem where my 8" exposed circular AC duct comes out of the ceiling. Above the ceiling is the attic, meaning it gets pretty hot. As you can see in the pictures, the small (maybe 6-9") stretch of the pipe between the plenum box above and where it comes out...

    My vaulted ceiling has sticky yellowish streaks running from the highest part of the ceiling down about 10 feet and ending in what looks like a drop. This all started after putting on a new roof about 5 years ago. What can I do?

    I have a large roof area of corrugated fibre cement sheeting (big six). After some rains I noticed the underside of the sheeting was damp as if it was sweating, no actual water leaks. What can I use to seal this roof material so I can put up ceiling boards inside without fear of damp?

    i can occasionally hear a few drops here and there in my 3" type B horizontal (well, mildly sloped but certainly more horizontal than vertical) venting for my gas water heater, which runs about 8-9 ft from the appliance to the vertical rise into the chimney with a total of 3 90 deg elbows. i...

    I've attached a few photos. It's safe to say that I don't have a lot of experience in home improvement. I need help! My dad owns a flowers shop where he has a cooler for the flowers. The cooler has a display window and water is forming and rotting a horizontal support beam directly under the...
