    Ventilation question

    I found this site by Googling DIY HVAC. I want to replace a vent that is in the basement. It is old and actually leaks. Seems like an easy DIY job that would make my day when completed. So being the wise person, I am researching HVAC. The house I live in was built in 1927, but I don't...
