Inside outside doesn't matter and also as always we we love entering our energy efficiency indoor air quality. Building durability questions. Which you know hence the name buildings science we talk about so often. That phone number is 2601 a seventy that's fumble 42601870. What can also sends a text at 87870. Would love to talk to love on the radio. Were you consists textile reach your question. Let's go to four months and speak with Sam and Sam thank you for holding on I appreciate it good morning mark we help you. Oh good our policy to show when are you able catch to work schedule my. Partial compliance related real quick at other plumbing line and product you are talking about. I can't remember the name of it but the X slot in the connectors it's much better than. Yes so the the kite tech actually picked there are class action suits against his manufacturer of products is ultimately failed. In now. I don't again out I'm not attorney but around I don't believe the class action suit is still open where you could join. But you know as I'm sure this script of time months of with. But the packs piping is is really different technology. There are no failures with that preserved. It was installed originally correctly which you know the nice thing about this product is that and you know you can fill you pretty quick it you know it's not used on the road. Located at that that matches that went back to open a great. Reba on out we ought everywhere I don't know about that you Wear them on that. Don't know a good well my question Rocco don't do appliances. I understand it was a different vendors to that it. And it's just over except for a question it is I'm trying to rebuild our house yours doctor. Kissinger. And and I want my belt and stated that option but it's the result and it looks at the result. Now would be in terms like future Artest. Get tried to do good here's opinion. At the open than most though and which actual manufacturer makes a. No and I don't think so. In you know. What is nice things about seers is that the hip consulates inventory of parts. In with today's Internet meaning you can even buy aftermarket parts that match that manufactures products so I'll I'll would be. You know what are likely break your house and I'll confess to your view purchase there are appliances burqa law not because. They were in expensive cheap poorly made. Products is the cause our families is ruffle. I. We got four kids in which if ruffled appliances that things as Rainier. Does break in if there's any appliance manufacturers out there that if you wanna use us as a test cases yet are we products are. Bring them on because we terra but are normally I would go directly to manufacturer. Intricate that product or go to an after market that the product was available. Or that many effect on buses obviously cost or did not get any problems funny parts. Do you do need to offer which which actual manufacturer makes this year's other. And stoves. It depends on which when you look at that Kim wore Oakley is is is the majority. However that that's not all minority there outsourced to competent folks but believe him I believe it's it's Kim wars is the vast majority of. OK you can actually manufactured actually make them. Yes I'll look at the idea of the world or other. You know appliance vendor. Manufactured to get more and at Sears brand but don't brand. I I would imagine that they're there are some of the parts made by the manufacturers incorporating it. In this for all the parts I don't know what got you okay text sort of Ochoa thanks to help appreciated. You bet good look at the renovation. Yellow robot. Yeah some. Hit back at that supposedly went OK we could go to the commercial Britain will come back. That's the Mary is on hold we go to this Mary first and then it Daryn in the mutual will be right back at this inching. More of your home from questions of these commercial breaks. Hey welcome back to the home improvement show our previous colosseum. Was asking questions about how can you detail what manufacturer. Makes that plans were seers and over the course what do real quick check. At this website its appliance for one more indict com appliance for 11 the numbers 41 dec com. And it tells you all the free faxes to the model number that's on the appliance tag. So's the model number of first three numbers. Of the model number would use that prefix tells you who manufactured that lines. Force years so you know. Or pool. Panasonic's and some amount of whoever was. Gee it's it's it's all there so. Hopefully. 022 what you wanna be. And in Salem hoping you're still listening in and get that information. Right let's move on and speak with Mary K Mary good morning welcome to show. Meant that when you talked about. Bill isn't that type of pipe into company may not accept that would know I had phone call on. That. That you don't know what would that pipe that when but the news. So that the the plummet but I was referred to as Mary is a pipe that is no one manufactures been used many years ago is probably twelve to fifteen. Year ago range in his high tech. It's KI TCK. I TEC. That I am right. It's a plumbing pipe system or water supply on the I mean they. Yes ma'am okay without that right. Off no limits its apology you'll like it it's it's a synthetic pipe. OK in my place so that old but I'll check on the ball and have a K peace be a thank you very much. Yes that they go in Washington long list merry. Let's go and speak with Darren hey Daryn good morning welcome to the show. More all he'd. Won a column to find out I'd heard about the pick it. Up put one up. And a wonder it took four foot optics now pick it yeah. Would be the height or the or Ronald Roberts. For that little note to. Yes so. Really would I would do is Albert Cusick. Probably quarter points have come up 25% and go down 25% from the top set unit and you know and you want to push it. You know you would you be able to go 30% I wouldn't do much more than that. They did you know that the gothic style. At the very top of the of the picket. You know you they would play without when the bottom review this matter too much it's it's there were some horizontal Rio where that look at released today and that it. We opt percent. Yeah if you haven't done so from. Go by an airless prayer because of its wood that's a lot of brushes brush strokes painted on Letterman like that. We'll listen. Tape up your wrist takes mob of pro for it and you say it's if you're in light in my. Little boy. It does the family project right yeah yeah it's. Been there. Who listen to look the prizes are thank. You. Right at school and continents collars because Jules mutual good morning to show you know. I'm calling about a terrible and it station I am with a drained fly. Or not these will reply. But the thing going on in November. I've been eight with street lie mainly in my garbage disposal kitchen area that they out so again. In all numbers in my bad area I did a search online at our current commercial. Drain cleaners. Used what they recommended bleach and ammonia bacon and anger. I hit a plumber. Three different times he's sealed the toilet. He cleaned the drain. Up hand. The honey get out to clean out my septic treatment plant. Arm compared exterminator out three different times. And killed during lied to her at. Everybody is huddled even exterminator. That he got in touch with me. Bug expert ballot issue when he came out last time. The last. It but at the end suggested and that Sheen so so drastic by it. We probably have to move on with it is our plumber has suggested how they're probably about fifteen years ago lab. He suggested that perhaps. Some of the height have. Rotted or corroded and that's where it flies are getting hand. And the way it teen would diagnose. Would be put on our smoke. In two is the height to be aware. That might be that we might be looking chairing up walls and floor and so on. You got any idea I ever heard anything so there. So Jules white why hasn't he put a camera on your piping systems Steve pace in the reaches in the plumbing system. You can put on the system in and videotape it. I guess he's not. That technologically. Ending any chance I get that need to get somebody who has that capability before at a resort to that. If it goes. The cameras could be a lot more precise reference to follow so Cameron Worrell log to inspect your entire marine system. Are also allow you to pinpoint exactly if you have a breach where's the breach yet because. They confide to without look at that it's okay the camera that is exactly right here. So you're not removing replacing lots stuff that's unnecessary to gain access to the plight. I. That that's certainly what would I would. Okay have you ever heard anything since everybody currently. Totally possible I mean these professional don't know what to make a bit of. So I haven't seen the extreme that you described but it's on it all the you know to where you warn when your your checklist of things you party attempted. You would have solved our problems out there seemed to go as far as you have. Europe however with a plumber saying certainly makes cents. Because of the simple fact that. Drank slices like every other insect it it it's you know it's it's got to a certain certain cycle of life and left the arts and if their keyboards have the ability to use. Lay eggs hatching go to law book then you have a flaw. So are you apparently united getting to where. They're able to. Reproduce and hatch a X. So it maybe in a broken pipe you have access to sought consume assume that's possible. And OK it is compact that case I mean we look at it like. You know heaven is chair out of wall or floor out and to get to that height is that what we're talking about the. Ten where Gary is. It depends which preaches that if there's a broken piping you can fun with the camera you can locate the camera he really depends where it's active before it can even go there until April. That is one thing that I did forget to mention arm army. Third trip that the exterminator. And mate if he can't mention one other XT at the time they go to branch. It hit problem. It done. I didn't quite understand what the treatment was but it was something that involved like blah and treatment. Throughout the hole out to the point that we would have been moved out. Get the heck out and you know pretty much. Get out how for a day or two wildly in that. I'm thinking New York's congestion at that camera down a whole lot more workable before that though. Yeah because if you let's say you check your house almost like you've seen his ex terrorist think he's picked built this for termites if but if you aren't a whole building. And you've done everything in the living space of the house and you have an address what's happening. Perhaps underneath your slab and your are you Tom your money new effort. You have on the source. Arm argue in the business of recommending. Professional to do that kind of stuff or is that not appropriate. He spent so you can see Paul's als website that Paul's house dot com and you look on the plumbers you'll see some men. And they also applaud. Services in and Barack artist. Paul against that are out. I miss him. It's it's by regions in this in north in his. What. No it was but say there there are other services. Or not. Bombers but they just Cameron's elections if you want a plumber from inspectors you can certainly do. Our thank you mark. It look there's. Are. Actually missed. You'll there's actually just called in and offer to suggest in. Last with at percent of their record was or program. Home you know I'm not sure what they're saying with that in reference to ensure that it might trap the flies. Or eat it and so you would actually. Pokes holes in it and home is the the of the fruit flies in the replies Mexico in the examples of vinegar and taken out they'd. And that's a means of of killing that means you've hit the reeks three trips and extra runners century's. Struggle that's. You know what. Can try acting. In the six month journey that you know I would try it. You know he'll saying they let you know buried chemical in it and I appreciate that in input from trauma via the earth will take it to heart. And life. Oh good look at the Project Hope you get the salt. Okay nobody could receive his heart rate will come back at this. It back to ancient questions and David you were up first with a rep packet that is. Welcome back to the whole crew show let's go straight to the phone lines and speak with David hey David good morning. I volley. And no Lola question on and polish. So I got how to takes pretty brutal beat what does so. And it's thirty you know there here constructionist. And it enables. True look into some straight well and I also is seen well bubble not reflective. Paper. Had a lot of water and water how well that performs compared spray of sorts for the price and a huge difference. What I do better and some more bad installation in my rafters and then put that in my choice is disgraceful really that that relieved that. So let's talk about the pros and cons of votes and get a full picture and in bill will make an informed decision on what you think it's worked best for you would you project and and your budget. Could you surely right the price points of the radiant barrier product. Is is much more inexpensive compared to use a foam insulated house but they perform differently so the yeah he certainly expect the difference price point. So with a radiant barrier it does decrease degree heat. Particularly in and out at a house like its full song like you described in he would decrease to reheat in your attic. Or an average twenty degrees I've seen some 12 o'clock and six and seven injuries and seeing some addicts. You know 1718 degrees a lot depends on its fools on what depends on the caller the shingle or in the attic ventilation does a lot of variables that go along with that. So if your air conditioning equipment you're into equipment in your dock workers located in that sent an addict. And it's been exposed to some really harsh conditions. From the sun and from the moisture the year when it's in under its current condition. So if you're able to put a rating barrier in this place and you have to reduce the temperature. Inside that attic. He surely would improve from energy efficiency standpoint. He certainly would improve the heat inside that attic space which who have a good positive impact. When they cash and equipment to dock work in your ceiling insulation. Because of actually what happens with the heat of you ceiling insulation he goes through the installation kits and tease him and she rock which eventually it's your house. So that particular product the better. Problem in Cannes Har the orbit you know upper you know that's just sit in the AG. Factor let's talk about moisture because that's the sort of the other half of the story that no one really talks vote in the it norte to they have problems. When you have a dented attic. And you have detonation equipment in that space and you reduce the temperature. Decreased reduced temperature for numbered from products from different ways but this KG you mentioned radiant barrier. Dole's whole services or quote services are much greater risk but reaching viewpoint and compensating. With the cooler than today attic there with a hot that it. So all of a sudden you drop the temperature in that attic. Twenty degrees. And you keep in the same the temperature of your house. Which of their status so you know it's you know seventy twosome or threesome before where you have the senate. Those coals surfaces particularly give doc weeks. Or fewer docs he supplied docs or not proper support it would duck settles if they're sitting against the ceiling insulation or the touching each other. They're gonna reach two point knickers way. And that's a more shall problem that's not an engine problem in those people think about the bush problem until it's too late. You know when we compare contrast that with these brief home. Insulated attic. Presuming your house is a candidate for it's critical that every house's candidate. But presuming that it is if in the attic space is properly insulated. Meaning it separates the half from the coal as properly airtight air sealed. Not allow on the outside moisture content and then all of a sudden that addicts temperature as much which cooler in temperature but also much porch raw IR. And moisture content to their pool cool surfaces like your recognition equipment doc work. Don't reach two point and they don't sweat you know compensate. And it's it is a far Har performing system. Now if your equipment is not in the attic. And you really. Don't want spray phone you could use a radiant barrier. If you could go the rating of very path that I would also suggest that you are seal. Or you're stealing penetrations are you toppling penetrations. Recess candlelight speakers and anything that could be connecting. The non living addicts living space and also adding. Insulation equal to like or 38 at the ceiling. Air sealing your docs. Properly supporting ducks would dock saddles. Mic to you could even air flow I streak. Lines pinpointing point B it's like our work easy gentle transitions. You may even choose to change the insulation of your supply dark work. If it's older house it may be in a four point two or value you can give up to a twelfth so these are all things that you can certainly need to mitigate. The risk of reaching two point content sitting with more extra problems can also give you some more paying for the balked for energy savings in conference under house. Our pride and that is my situation with the air conditioners in the attic everything's. Yeah an aunt and I think that's pretty common there because most people set conditions as well with Romeo and it's the worst place for it but that's where it puts it. So and and alcohol makes you question. I echo him open. You do it you that appreciate you code all right I would go to commercial break welcome back Lucas beat the Michael and then bill left the I'm gonna where we're coming right back after this. They folks we just got a text that me help in this tools to called a few callers. And was complaining of some issues and implies that when that listeners taxes in and it mentioned that. You may look for spectators may be the Beck it is recovered and you've got about these habits you know that's apparently something that would attract flies as well. So. Maybe some of those look for us to pursue that right let's go to four months and speak with Michael and Michael good morning. Oh yes good morning Ecuador. I I have vinyl siding on my house and the side of the stage cheated most of the day. Goat good green Altria horrible it would be the best way to clean attitude unconnected spray on it goes all of the new pressure wore it. Yeah so. I have this little bit on the north's out of my house in this game direct sunlight you know it's some states obstacles brick in the patients office and you know normally see you on the patients often more as you step on the bright. And two products we can use Michael that if you know you reload the very proactive about this is actually something that we talked about a lot after. The floods in March and also this past August. And that's offer but that's living systems. So if you would go to see Paul's house dot com. Which it at that site and click on the law and you can search. For all four organic growth of mold remediation and seal products and those links reprimand. It's in magic. And also back shield those two products that Easter it would consider where you can clean and also. Treated cities reduce the risk of coming back. You know in art and venture expectations we do live in the south. We lose and very hot humid climate in Los annual rainfall. So it's this is not like product however it would certainly greatly increased in my time. Between Washington's user considers. Oh. Can you know appreciate you calling that's a question is does the time you're restored to spring cleaning inside and outside and those type. Questions come up by the way. Those two products can also be used in the inside your home because they don't have any chemicals in and there aren't in their arm friendly. And they Warsaw hopefuls that's another reason why I like them look at it doesn't hurt the landscaping or your. And he though. Newcrest is it that was it's easy for you to the person you would protect the most rate you and your family. Correct. So all right thank you thanks thanks for call Michael thank you appreciate it OK to go to commercial break and come back. Will speak with feel.
