re: OT - Insulating a bonus room over garage - S1C EM
[quote]Attached or detached? If attached you can look at just upgrading your existing hvac to accommodate the additional sq ft, especially if existing system is aged.[/quote] It’s attached. This was my original thought, too. My systems are 21-year-old Trane units. My original plan was to have t...

re: OT - Insulating a bonus room over garage - S1C EM
[quote]Cold air is sucked in from the soffit vents and as hot air rises it is released through the high point (typically a ridge vent these days). That air must travel freely from soffit to ridge. Foam does not allow for that as well as fiberglass does. Also, people talk about building codes...

[quote]What is the point in spray if the balance of the house is not foam. [/quote] Well, I'd think the main difference is that the space over the garage is very different from the rest of the house, i.e., it's getting sun and ambient heat directly from three sides AND below. Fiberglass insulati...

[quote]Spray foam all the way. Will be more expensive but does a much better job at temperature control with the outside air.[/quote] That's what I figured. And it's a lot easier to do it right this time around......I don't want any horror story with a room that's essentially unusable because th...

OT - Insulating a bonus room over garage - S1C EM
Question for anyone with knowledge on the subject.....but for brevity, should I opt for spray foam insulation when completing this room or go with the code standard fiberglass? I know the easy answer is "duh, yeah." That said, is there a reason NOT to do it that way? Likely will be heated/coo...

[quote]Not always. I closed 4 last month and my score didn’t move at all.[/quote] That would be highly unusual, particularly for an old card. It’s more likely that the closed accounts haven’t hit your report yet (I have a new one I opened over a month ago that just reported yesterday). You lite...

[quote]Why would you have three cards with them, instead of one card with a 65K limit? Security reasons?[/quote] Started out with the Quicksilver when the Venture wouldn’t have made sense (and I wasn’t even sure if I’d qualify for it). Eventually, the travel benefit made more sense, hence the Ve...

re: New Credit Card - S1C EM
[quote]the internet is replete with similar stories. if you start out low with them, there's not much room to go upward. they'd rather people open new cards then raises existing card limits up to spec[/quote] That's probably it, then. I started out with a $3,000 card with them years and years ag...
