Why don't you just cut the duct in the closet and be done?

I was considering this. I guess I just wanted to do it in a way that's easy to switch back and forth, just in case.

I've only been a homeowner for a week now, so I'm still getting used to the whole "it's my house I can do whatever I want" mentality.

I am sure you already know that the air going upstairs will end up downstairs.
Any way to damper the whole upstairs at one spot? I have a damper right above the furnace that splits the house in half.

Some air will come downstairs, but certainly not all of it. A lot of it just gets wasted in the crawlspace where the ducts are, and a lot of the "coldness" gets absorbed by all the stuff upstairs.

The upstairs is just two rooms with a bathroom and a tiny "hallway" in the middle. There is only one  vertical duct going upstairs which splits into two for the two bedrooms (plus a small branch off to the bathroom). That vertical duct happens to run through a coat closet on the first floor so it would be very easy to access to put something in there.

Now that I think of it, there might actually be some kind of damper down in the basement. Remind me to check when I get home.

If it is working for downstairs do you really need to block off the upstairs?

It's not great downstairs, it's just ok. There's cold air getting upstairs, it's just not enough to make a difference so it's a waste. I'd rather keep all that cold air downstairs.

The A/C unit in my house is really old and doesn't work well. Works OK for downstairs, but upstairs get basically nothing. I would like to just get window units for upstairs and completely close off the rectangular ducts leading upstairs. It seems like I would need some type of damper to put into the ducts.

Does anyone know a simple, inexpensive way to do this? I'm pretty handy, so I could probably do it myself. Just wanted to know if anyone has any experience.

Important Update - Pay Your Age Day
July 12, 2018

Per local authorities, we cannot accept additional Guests at our U.S. Build-A-Bear Workshop locations due to crowd and safety concerns

We have closed lines in our U.S. stores. We understand some of our Guests are disappointed and we will reach out directly as soon as possible.

Don't really get what they were thinking. What did they expect to happen?

What do people buy from Google Express?

Haven't found anything that makes sense for me.

Deals/Deal Requests / Re: 2 dozen Roses and vase for $15.97

Got the two dozen roses for my wife.

Looked horrible. Roses were tiny, cut to weird lengths, two of them were even rotten and moldy.

Told my wife that they weren't from me, probably from her mother. She asked why my name was on the card. Doh!

Lesson learned - next time don't put name on card.

On The Road / Disposing of Small Propane Tanks
« on: April 23, 2018, 03:01:40 PM »
Anyone know how to get rid of those small green tanks used for portable grills?

I'm afraid to throw them with the regular recycling, but I also don't feel like going to some special recycling facility.

Haven't found a clear answer anywhere online.

Yeah, I always call the merchant before disputing. 99% of the time they'll refund the charge right away.

IIRC, in the past when you would go to dispute a charge they would recommend that you try to sort it out directly with the merchant first.

In my latest experience they didn't say anything like that. I was actually surprised how simple the process was. I'm getting the feeling that CC companies don't really care about merchants very much.

Still get charged a chargeback fee, depending on your processor.

Well then he should still have a tayna. Someone else is messing up and he's losing money from it.

Take what up?

If people are successfully disputing in cases where they should be using return protection, then the merchant should have a tayna on the CC company.
