200,000 BTU's part 2
I have never been a cheapie with regard to paying contractors what they ask, as long as I get quality workmanship. I assume when I invite a company to my home for an estimate, they know their business, and give advice based on what I need. Most homeowners, do not know the technical stuff like you guys, which is why we rely on experts for the right info. example, last year I did the exterior of my home, hardy board, roof, gutters, aluminum facia and sofitts, ridge vents. I spent a great deal of money, I paid the bill in full. NOw I come to find out that they did not supply enough intake vents for proper ventillation of the ridge vent, now I have to go through all this crap trying to get the company to correct it AFTER the fact, I can;t understand this, you would think companies doing the work know what the hell they are doing right? now as you can imagion I'm leary of who to hire for my heating, especially since no one is on the same page with regard to what I need. I do appreciate the feedback, but alot of the technical stuff is over my head, I need more info on what to do rather than how to get there. here is the best I can describe my scenerio.
I told you its a 200,000 btu furnace, i was wrong on my SF i said 4000 its listed with my village as 3650SF. we had a hyle 5 ton air put in last year, (my electric bill for the last 2 months was over $500 per month) I suspect the reason for this is because one of my sons bedrooms does not get air (or heat in winter) its the farthest away from furnace, so we put in a portabel unit and its takes alot of electricity. in winter that room and some other rooms upstrairs does not get heat or cold air, even with that monster unit. one guy said I have 2 cold air returns, but also said some of the sizes do no match right for max air flow. thats about all I can tell you.
