Good morning welcome to the second half of the home from show we will be on the air between now and 12 o'clock talk about energy efficiency home repairs. On repairs of the deal with much core plumbing or maybe she heater it's air conditioned. And of doesn't matter roof with his inside outside project will be happening help any way we can that phone number. It's 260187. In what instance attacks at 87870. Let's go to phone lines to speak in the spot where ms. Barbara thank you for older lord. Good morning how can we help. About mildew in the back term. I had packed area in the hour. Backed away and they com. Continue continued to note you know IA. Credit scrape it out land area lit a lot of Lee led attack apparently. Replace the cop with mildew resistant caught. In keep coming back in the same spot. Under he can. Tell me what to do about that. So what we talk about areas that have higher levels of moisture and Athens is certainly one of those who would be like the kitchen when you cook so. You wanna use those X Austrians. You have an exhaust in your bathroom. Yeah. Okay it's an. In July after you know have been given that. It really wouldn't stay Mary. More humid and here. After an hour. It. Well staying human enough for the for mold to grow so that it's that which doesn't in our climate be honest with you is is. Really not a lot I mean anything over 60% relative humidity. In in those conditions are right. Organic growth can can car Blackstone. I. Well it likes the likes the sealant it likes the clock news and and using them to resist the caulking bit. Selections or probably best. For that to reduce. Organic growth. Also I heard you say that you're cleaned with bleach. And in bleach doesn't kill more it actually turns clear and let me let me explain to you this way. You need to global sport almost like any flaw war. And when the sun comes up in the flower opens up it's absorbing that the posts emphasis from the sun it's getting some moisture it's too everything needs to do. And there are some flowers when it starts raining or. As a means of protecting us so that closes the pedals. Win it feels it's it's under an attack on moles for. It is not much different OK so when you put bleach on it it actually closes the blossoms of flour. It prevents that Campbell from getting to the root and killing it but it turns clear and you think you've killed. So. A regular household bleach is not gonna work you do use an anti microbial product. And we actually talked about the salute the early in the show. There was some time back in we hit the floods in March and August a Dick quite a few blog postings on how to mediate. Organic growth mold mildew popular describe it Fonda.

And deep these systems and the products into the website like France's best living systems dot com. Is all in those blog postings and it talks about. How to mediate. Oh organic growth. I. Cut right. Use that X Austin's Barbara and leave that bathroom door closed separate from the wrestler house and can be taken hot soak in the tub or shower. That bath exhaust fans got the run the entire time you're creating moisture but they think. And also for at least 1520 minutes after you turned what else off our. And that's gonna help. You may also choose a maturity of a show Curtin road to war in May when narrowing leads those opening get some drawing inside that space to. I had been doing that and I and I have been using a silicon. Crop. But I can't need me I'm not killing it. Went right product out there little book and area though I'm wondering about this an intact by microbial. Microbial product I don't know what happened by and large amount and it. They sell and small quantities it's a concentrate. So you'll buy like a small little pint of it and follow the mix and corrections. Can concentrate but you can use it not the spot she used inside the house outside of the house it's a non chemical product which are really like. So. You know you follow a lot of uses sport matches in this room. Right I Lanka you bet thank you appreciate you calling. Okay. If you have a question we got one or two spots available for you on the phone lines that phone numbers are zero for. 260187. In what instance attacks a 7870. Who go to commercial break moment come back from the commercial on start entering your text so pay attention will be right back office. You heard the phone numbers you have questions about home repairs energy efficiency more Easter. Comfort it's all open for discussed between now and 12 o'clock. When we give you Kansas case you missed it it's 2601878. Or since text that he 7870. Which is actually details to read a couple of deals tax. Let's see. Is there due to soft application of rhino shall process and can be used on wood. It's certainly the runner shall process can be used on bullet talking used to be used on wants to conserve some sin in what is what is. I am not aware of acute yourself applications specifically from right of shield but I didn't ask the question I have never seen or heard of that. But you can certainly Koppel's books and and asked that question they're they're great resource and very knowledgeable on that product. If the editor's note and you looking forward do it yourself option. There's and it's not the same thing to front chute but there are some very high and a long term warranty products and product chic and yet like for instance like an event of more help paint. You can go to your local opening store and ask those questions. Hope you know hey I'm really looking for a paint that's convert long Ortiz. That is very durable. And you know they can. Educate you or what's an option. What those products are available and also. As about the preparation in the application. Pictured it you'd get the benefit of the long term. Product and also investment because it's just that could be expensive. Policy NetApp says on this big Gulf Coast. Air condition systems favorite but dealers or. Clinics train Amanda Goodman in the info which is best. One of the what is Richard's house is a carrier in this thirty years old. Well I think you probably has if you question. And if if you had good luck with carriage no reason to the switch I have Kerry in my home. I'd love it I have in years I've been building. That the three top brands I've worked with in the past were trained carrier Atlantic's. And had great results. With all in fact any of the Manger that the water manufactures you just described in your text. Or are certainly offer great products every manufacturer. No matter who they are. At different levels of performance. In different levels to ability date they all have their good better best lines. And with the improved. Durability energy efficiency features also called that award team which also Colmes on more reports it's a price. But you know you certainly kit which you pay for saw how would have qualms with with any of those does she described. I personally have her home that the carrier fonts that system. It's a terrible capacity machine it is five speeds. That it's from the carrier's system its heat pump. That works burger world from home of course the most important thing about recognition systems is making sure that day or. Designed specifically for Euro state engineered. For the heat in the moisture of your home its internal he's works external heat. And that the dot quirk matches in the system if you just replace. Yeah indoor and outdoor air conditioned commitment you don't address your existing don't work. Which is that your house is his thirties old. You're missing the boat. Don't let it went just so you boxes you know they see guys with so yeah box. Those you went on an HTC dealer who's gonna take the time engineers system just for your home. Fine matching equipment to match your blues and and natural moisture levels. And also is could've verify you're resisting doc work would work with that new air condition system. A lot of humps the order docs don't match up to Newark systems. Like the group moving and replacing revising the modifying existing system in order to have proper. Here disputes in which means equal corporate each of equal protection tiles that moisture and also the energy efficiency you paying more. So please you know take that whole house approach we described. What we we talk about it's efficient features on this show. Hurry here is a public question. Text says what makes a kitchen faucet home. The air raid years clean and what else can be in and he also did a follow up text. Port to the consequences. Both hot and cold handles and they both home. Who cut so harming when we talk about. Plumbing Tiffany's relating to air security mentioned errors clean. He could be here that's in the line it could be that the plumbing pipes and side. The stunts or vibrating you know you went when you drill hole in the stolid. Which framing. You know the whole host of who marched in the pipe you'd put some form of a wedge or a wraparound device that keeps the pipe firms that doesn't get that and that stood. That would framing of operate knock. It also could be debts that you could you have Salma. Some debris in the line but I think that's probably highly unlikely because tapping book. Hot pink hole. But most on it's it's related to error or vibrations of the plumbing pipes. Maturity Nedney plumbing done repairs on your house or even on U street. You know there. In my subdivision. My home assists a little bit higher in the mice running houses my neighbors around me and movers there's plumbing underground work done. The air and comes in funds this natural highs spot and in irons and chattering as some operations among pipes. Whenever the duties of infrastructure worked for the plumbing system. So yeah you know that's that's all things you can look for trying to flush as much as possible. And I would also verify that air raider stays clean because and they may be clean now but this year. Europe using your house in there if there is some debris from plumbing repairs should be funded it gives them some debris it. It's he attacks we have. Two web site is best living systems dot com. The two products that I was referring to news is Angie magic. And also. Back shield and both those products have discussed. In our blog on Paul's house a little Paul's house dot com click the blog button and it's odd to actually under. We're discussion we're toggle in the homes we have flooding in both march and this past August. And helping folks. Determine what's the best products use non chemical products intimate crow was bikinis to address the organic growth in their home. No the question is. Exco take his turn to Indian and heard the discussion. About the Shaw or valve packing enough hot water Charl felt can you please detail that again. So let me kind of bring up to speed if you just tuning in a last week. We had Michael called me and he has a single filed in his shower. Meaning one valve turns on and off and hot cold and he wasn't getting enough hot water even when the bout was turned only hide. He still wasn't hot enough. And that the way you address that is behind that single him or valve. Is a little plastic gear. It adjusts the blending of hot water and Cold War. These us call free valves so you're always gonna have some cold water blending which are war. You can actually take a year out and rotated either clockwise or counterclockwise. To. A law less or more whole water that is lending. With the valve when his turn into the opposition. So and you may want if you if you if you're visual you wanna see wanna talk about good YouTube and search and YouTube videos on how to do this. If you know if you when it is dive right into my suggest knew his. To go ahead and turn off the named golf at your water come into your house who have new water coming your plumbing system and all the pom squad bells closed off. Take off that so over handle whatever color your chrome or press whatever it is your handle a single panel Alfie Charl off. And wreck on its you can see. A little. Oh large snot and write honestly a most times it's like oh a white face plate in his gear behind there. Take a picture that's a you know position it's in you should Smartphone took a picture of what you're doing. And then take it year out and rotated either clockwise or counterclockwise. And that turned the valve back on if you turn the waters if you get more or less. I'm hot water if you giving less how wanted to you know we went wrong direction of that year you take all part rotated in the opposite direction. And dump all you can more hot water with your single candle Val forge your shower. So hopefully that help. Let's see what else we have in reference to you. Some texts and wanna make sure don't miss any sometimes it's Texas color. It jumps around animals get chances here by his task as it gets kind of jumbled up. Let's see. It's. It's. When using that insulation between the first and second floor pretend you wouldn't sound come from the second floor. Should still be on face it can it be faced he can be faced. It doesn't matter what direction of faces up or down doesn't matter it's better if it's unfazed. As so how wouldn't. If you had a choice I would use until its product it's friction fit anyway. Trying get in the senate that floor choice cap because typically you put tourists are. You know 1012 inches tall trying to get in the senator that space and friction fit. And it it should. In a tenure which some salad and that's not to make it sound proof but we'll make some improvements and as we actually had Richardson nor is guy comment. On the so and call and office products have endorsed control systems. That is certainly you can this resource I would certainly go reach out to and he said you'll be happy to answer some questions for freight. Part listen we could go to PC BS news breaking just a few moments. Come back seat Dwayne and Ryan or on the phone system holding. And guys I'm getting personal hold advocate few questions right after we come out of this news break if you have a question we only got thirty minutes left that showed there's a good time to do it. The phone lines to 601870. What do you sense at Texas 870 threes and it. We'll be right back after this news break more on provincial here in the big 87. Pay welcome back to the home from his show I just saw a Texan came in right before the CBS news break. We were talking about some do it yourself options in reference to extra coatings and and that some incentive that texas'.

I don't know anything about it it's it's hey thanks for the person sent in the text thank you. For the information in the one that's in the original task hopefully that will. Keep these additional directions in addition to what I suggested of contact the folks at write ratio war also it helped me. Let's go to Fo want to speak with Brian hey Brian. Good morning welcome to the show. I was not run as Dwyane. Are you a blanket more than they are you. And harder leadership on that I've got an exterior door in her. Shady. Wait a beat on it in our area of Christ out via. Pre on torture them and dole one of those. Always say they don't jam material is resist you know what that. I don't really want mr. Premature crude. If you look that typically is material. So look limits they would like I did have a in my home I have a week extra to work. That's kind of exposed to the elements it it does is there's the opening is so high in the air. Though I think psychic give any protection to lose the war. It faced in the west direction goes the F in his sciences eats it up right. Oh I was looking for something that wasn't it rust. Wasn't gonna rocked it was a good mood and checked in split everything else so I guy ain't no rod textures to work. Chain him frank system it's actually made of synthetic products and you can paint it. It and make it look like rule would affect Intel's Andrew wood it's all made of synthetic products in the war itself. Is a fiberglass door software about it rusting on war but it checking a cracking or moving or warping but nothing like that. So if I would do. Public go with fava pistol without a list or you can actually do. Staying war or paint you can do by the way. And make it look like real and grave with the war. It's in Boston I would green endorsement or Grossman's. And you can get a no prize jail so. When I exceed detected or hear the term rot resistant. That's not the same thing is no run here ever what I. Yes so you problem particularly in a little bit further maybe fund some and help you that they boxed or in talk about synthetic. Two were jams. All the symptoms. Have bought a PC. Packaging them and tried to. It's a little heavy or tried to do so just replaced as airman that was. A computer or that are difficult so. You know art. Yeah Dwayne did you block behind it between the wood framing and that that PVC gym with a piece of Lockwood who runs score restaurant bar on the hinges. Yeah I used to racers. But you know doing the job self control. Yeah toward. It's tough to chisel and injures on the back to struggle pre system. Who's news. Pretty user should be a much easier. Should be much easier let me give you some advice is take some steps to prevent the water from covenant between the threshold. And the foundation. There's a cop approach you can use like go. A silk man. Or is it at the very least. How would get some good exterior polyurethane sealant content a couple beats the ceiling down on the country before you put that. Two were in place prevent the water in the wind from coming between that metal threshold or loom threshold and the slap on federation. I'd get replaced the crucial issues silicone bulky. And and our lives. The rail networks aren't great or preparation helps you bet thank you the completion. Right. Let's see if weekend no we can't leave to go to break Brian you were up next men don't go to where please hold on. On the come TF this commercial break will be right back after this. Welcome back to this show the school's strict that a phone lines and speak with Ryan Ryan thanks for holding on men are gonna help. It's about. Sure. You leave your knee to the nutrient is like the like shipping get. Out. I. Think it will be compatible. Content. It's. I do however let me let me if you think about doing this yourself Ryan when we keep you couple that she would consider. The first what you went by he certified shipping container that certified what type airtight. And probably no one's been used once or twice. What's what's you partnership dictator. It's Republicans that you put that. That. Nettleton directly or in the ground Mexican and up little. You would insulate all sides of the box. Here's seal all sides of the blocks to get notes that. Watch rectangle box. If you wanna find a recognition system. That is the beasts. In the writes news. Soon they'll remove heat but also remove moisture in moisture is to be your biggest challenge. And finding an air condition systems all the things you know that. He externally internally generating. Who's been your biggest talents with them likely. Knocked it wouldn't do that would detectors and police league indoor outdoor. BX system. You probably have to go to it will likely gutless. Any split. That's got a terrible prison flowed what are you running low enough smaller capacity. To move the heat in the moisture from the space. What you've gotten that. That's that's the largest component in his eulogy of the infrastructure to elect when you won't want to get it done. It's almost like a regular house. You know it's probably the challenges. Props lease Ozzie and matching. In the air condition system for the smallest place and just reduction and eat and watch Lou coming into the chip in there. But. Don't you welcome good projects they send some pictures of love to see it actually choose to let you know in the bottle products. Where did that you appreciate it. Listen if if it doesn't matter what type project you have to compete. Two and a shipping container could be a commercial building in Austral hospital petrochemical plant large house small holes. Doesn't matter the billing sites is the same and we can apply to that particular application. And we can work through that we have such talk. Harsh climate here in the gulf solve that we're running our air conditions for the vast majority the year. But we have so much more shall we have teed due with a more ship has to be our biggest challenge and then of course we also would consider building durability. To protect their buildings was here from many generations to come. Not just here for the life or less so with the mortgage because. You know like I go through a summary homes that have made in check to see improvements to could be the older homes. And they thinking they're making the right steps in. This for a saving any G they make some good choices. But when do you make energy efficiency improvements to any structure. And harsher for the older structures and you don't consider. The implications. Of moisture. That's when you know building dirt and pure ability problems that's what you have more organic growth that's when it indoor quote concerns that's when you're building. Failures. You know we've got to consider that whole house approach of not just saving energy but also addressing the moisture. And there's going to be some energy efficiency improvements almost say you know what you probably should consider doing this for this particular project. Because the consequences of more sure for greater in the energy savings and it's not a good idea. So even if it is stork how's. You know we need to take all these things into consideration. I listened we could go to a commercial break and come back Jerry you were up next on the on the phone to ask your question. Which has got to look at left the home proved shall lift the go. If you don't have a chance to cash question you can almost go two up FaceBook page and senate there. Paul's house FaceBook will be right back after this here in the big itself. Welcome back to the show the school's strict phone lines and see who can help Jerry before we in the show hey good morning welcome Leo. Hi Paul op. We just completed insulating outlook garage door and we use them all little bubble wrap stop it. And all the package it also mention that it could be put on the ramp it in the attic. And we have ridge can't and I was wondering we could be back. OK so that all the rappers acting is a pretty barrier. Write it for facing if you were to put it. On this bonus on rafters you want the super side facing jail so standing out in senior addict you looking up at the bottom Cedric CNET but fool. Oh right. So you were carried all the dale the outside wall right is this the roof rafters go the extra year. Currently. In bringing all of the rich and you would stop it short about two feet of the bridge that. And and that's the suggest that wave installing it it took you so project. The is reduced to read heat coming to your attic however and if you work caution. When you're making your attic Kohler and temperature which were written in Perry does it'll it'll. You sure at temperatures you know eighteen to twenty degrees. Is good for any efficiency. Not good from moisture when your air conditioning equipment and dock workers located in the attic. Because your attic news twenty degrees cooler. And it's still that it to the outside is to connect it to the outside moisture. Cools surfaces like accurate it is equipment in your dock work reached point sooner. And compensate lots and with a look at a purses are one matter so honest we will reduce the temperature in your attic but there's some moisture consequences. That relating to cools services and if you have a look at doc work. That leaks war if the insulation supplied doc work is not the are valued that he would like it could be. And your recognition runs for an extended trees on like the cold inside home. Where if you have ET speed or capacity. Air condition system these are all things don't normally see that horse waiting compensating. In addicts they have rating carriers. Okay one more like it. What I call. It all over the garage area. Beautiful a lot it works well. You shouldn't have any complications because your condition dock workers not over the garage that's open it's the living stuff for the house. Okay and what went into the city and yet of course. Calling the garage and the. Well it would help in the summer I'm not sure it's gonna help you too much in the winter. But a definite will reduce the rate he'd he'd giving the attic space above the Raj. And in does that radiant heat. It goes in the attic vegetable radiate into the space below where you park your cars are stored your. You know took things too much lawnmowers and the artillery and if you don't. A sewing workshops to offer crafts in the garage. It does get hot from the addict. In debt reduction of heat will certainly go a long way. Though feeling a little more culpable and in your garage.
