    I'm currently dealing with a reno that's going well over budget. So I've started to look at clearance sections for a wall mount chimney style hood fan.

    Hello, I am the original owner of a two story home in San Diego that was built in 1997. My wife and I are thinking about installing solar panels this year.

    I recently moved into an older (approximately 1970) row townhouse and will soon be replacing/adding insulation in an unconditioned attic. The property has soffits. I was poking around in the attic just now and was unable to find any ridge vents or otherwise open vents. Shouldn’t I be able...

    Hi - this is my first post/time on this forum ever so please bear with me if I’m confusing or doing it wrong. Home Depot just delivered and installed a gas dryer at my home. I knew nothing about proper vent installation at the time. After the installers left I started questioning the common...

    I am remodeling a 1972 built house. Second floor bedrooms have a vent on top of wall and a slit in wall at floor level. I don’t know what it’s for? The baseboard would cover up the slit. Only the master bedroom vent goes below the decking. Can some please explain theory? See picture.

    I am finishing my basement bathroom and it requires a sewage ejector pump. My builder ran two pipes in the closet where the pump basin is located - one for the drain and one for the vent.
