Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Hi there, I'm planning to install "green stuff" (synthetic wool) underfloor, and the seller promised me that my humidity problem will be solved. If it is wool, does it really control/block humidity to enter the house? Many thanks!

I was a little skeptical too, but after having researched it a bit, apparently no vapor barrier is required if installed properly. "Installed properly" are the key words. Plus, there are several versions of this product, depending on the the need and the type of installation.

If you'd like to research it a bit more, before making a final decision, go to the manufacturer's website Autex Industries and send some time researching the different applications and how it must be installed. http://autexindustries.com/nz/insulation

I hope this helped you. Please let me know. Tanks.

    Hi Gas Logs, many thanks for your comments. I saw in their website that the Greenstuf "assists in reducing drafts", so it won't eliminate, but reduce it. Not easy to understand what it means... Does it reduces 10% or 90%?? What would you suggest in terms of other insulation materials that could eliminate draft/humidity and retain heat inside the house?

    Many thanks!!!

    riissa, I think it depends on the type of installation. I read that if the bats of insulation are installed between the wall studs or floor joist, roll type insulation should be installed over it and sealed with tape. Also, keep in mind that you're doing this as an after market type thing. as opposed to new home construction, which is a lot easier to make air tight. But, in my personal opinion and the EPA too ... In our zeal to create airtight, energy efficient homes, we have created "sick homes". As there is no longer any air exchange inside the home. Unless, you open a door or window once in a while to allow fresh air in and stale air out. Opening a door or window in the Spring & Summer is fine, but not in the Winter. So, what I'm saying is,
    " A little air infiltration is a good thing." Again, that's just my opinion. In the end, the decision is yours. I'd really like to know how it works out for you.

Just want to know what kind of antifreeze to put in my 1999 grand prix


Look what color it is. If it green it's the regular old fashion kind just buy the pre dilluted 50/50 blend. If the color is orangie- redish it's the new technology Synthetic anti freeze. Buy the apropriate jug. or Simply buy it from one of many autopart stores and ask the counter clerk. Yours is probably the orange red colored. Costs more but don't go cheap and put the green stuff in it will dry rot your heater core fast and then you'll have some problems.

Dear jonaclau. I tried to find some solutions, but i think that this is my best one. If you connect to the internet through your cell phone as a bluetooth modem it will charge through your cell phone service as a "data call" which unless you have a service plan for doing so charges you insane fees and rates. If you already have a unlimited data plan, which anyone using such services should have, then don't worry about it. It doesn't cost you cell minutes, it costs you data bites which can run much higher on your monthly bill than additional cell minutes do. If you have a data plan with your cell package like I do then congrads, sounds like you can probably get wireless internet access through your cell phone like I do. You'll know if your paying for a data plan because it costs you a noticeable amount extra each month.
Transfering files is easy, ignore the other stuff you got yourself into, set up the trust between the two devices and be sure to password protect the connection. You'll be prompted to initialy set up a password and enter in the same password on both devices.
The rest is so easy it's certain to cause confusion because you'll think it just can't be that easy.
Turn your bluetooth on in your phone if you have an option to turn it on or off, you should.
Turn on the bluetooth in your computer, usually you'll have a bluetooth manager program installed to do so.
Password protect and establish the connection.
