we have lived in our house for nearly a year but over the last few months have noticed some annoying squeaks on the vinyl kitchen floor and carpeted family room. The family room is over the half unfinished basement and the kitchen over the crawl space. The family room squeaks seem to be directly over ducting work to do with the heating/cooling system. Can we put some sort of spacers in the floor joists which will alleviate this squeak? Is there some solution you can use on topside ie on the floor itself? Is it worse in dry winter climate than in more humid climate? Any help gratefully received!
