Woody spent about 5 hours crawling under the house, going through the attic and conducting various tests on our heater, ducts, insulation, etc.

We ended up having a new furnace and new heater ducts installed, and more insulation added to the attic and a bathroom fan installed as well as various building sealing and pipes wrapped, etc. We were charged a very fair price, as there was a LOT of labor involved with our job.
