Do you feel like your home is not getting the airflow it needs upstairs to keep your home cool? If so, know that there are a few things that you can do on your own to fix it. Check The Dampers If your ductwork is located in an unfinished basement, there are likely dampers that you can adjust near where the air is pumped out of the air handler. The dampers should be located on the part of the ductwork that goes up to specific rooms in your home, with the ability to turn a knob to open or close the dampers.
By the time I finally finished saving money for my new home, I knew that I wanted something special. I didn't want to buy a starter home, and I really didn't want to deal with fixing up an older place. Instead of scouring the market and dealing with real estate agents, I decided to work with a general contractor to start building a place of my own. However, I didn't choose my contractor willy nilly either. I spend hours interviewing and researching various construction firms until I found the business I wanted to work with. This blog is all about working with contractors, so that you can make better construction decisions.
