Q. I need to raise my outdoor a/c unit about 3" secondary to grading problems. How do I go about doing that?
-DAN CUMMINGS, FORSYTH, IL
A. Hi Dan, While the basics of lifting an outdoor AC unit seem straightforward, there is a special consideration concerning R-22, the refrigerant that is likely used in your system. An R-22 "spill" can be dangerous for you and your family and can even lead to extensive fines by your city or township. Therefore, I suggest calling in an HVAC expert to disconnect and move the unit. Then, you can erect a simple concrete slab, let it dry thoroughly, and have the HVAC professional back to move and restart the unit.

I live in a 100 year old home with no insulation near Rochester, NY. I have two vastly different price quotes for insulation and air sealing the home (including sealing the rimjoists). The attic is used for storage and could be converted to living space as it has a great floor. This means that I am looking at insulating the underside of the roof as well as the gable ends. One contractor will NOT use closed cell foam because he says it will not handle the expansion and contraction without cracking. The other contractor will not use open cell foam because they say it does not really air seal the space. HELP! I am looking for a 3rd party to help me understand things.
