This past weekend I'd had enough of our squeaky master bedroom door. I'm an early riser and feel awful when I open the door and wake up my wife. So I decided to tackle our noisy door with
just a hammer, screwdriver, nail set and Blaster silicone lubricant. Ten minutes later our door opened and closed like a champ. The process I used worked so well I thought I'd share it here via this link to my blog http://www.homerepairtutor.com/stop-squeaky-...
I just use a quick squirt of WD-40. It's good for about 6 months and you don't even have to
take the hinges apart. Spray it on the joints of the hinges, work the door open and closed a few times to distribute the lube, then wipe off the excess with a paper towel. Takes less than a minute per door.
Finally finished sunroom with tile over cement floor. Absolutely love and enjoy this room.

@Judy - Radiant subfloor heating is an alternative to forced air (traditional central)
heating. It won't boil your feet, but it will produce enough heat to warm your house. This is true for most places, anyway. I've been in hotels in Korea when it was aroud -10F outside and the rooms were a comfortable 70-75F using just subfloor heating. Consult a local installer, they might have a demonstration available.
The upfront installation costs are a bit high, but when you factor in that it replaces your forced air heating system with a much more efficient style, the benefits start to stack up.
