Danny and Joe welcome callers’ questions each week on the Today‚Äôs Homeowner Radio Show.

Here’s a question from our Dec. 1 broadcast:

Eva from Texas says, “My father and husband have me all confused and I just want answers without choosing sides. Just bought an 80-year-old brick house with an h20 heater in attic [and just 2 inches of insulation in the attic]. Father says it is best to get [the water heater] out and [add insulation] husband wants to keep it. I’m so lost.”
