Re: Uninsulated stove vent

There should be a flapper right above the fan in the hood to block off most of the air, though I have the same type of arrangement on my single wide, and have never felt any down flow of air through it.

Not on mine. They have a couple clips on the center bar that pop off and release the top pane.

Re: Painting interior walls

I have the type of windows that have the metal frame screwed to the interior wall surface. I removed the screws and replaced with drywall screws to have a more flush surface to work with. After cutting the molding to fit, I ran two beads of caulk around the window, one on the metal flange, and one o...

Re: Painting interior walls

Sorry, no pics. Will try to put some up when I have time to study how to do it. In my home, built in 1987, the walls look like wallpaper.

Re: Intertherm MAC 1199 Gas Furnace
