Major pressurization issue


Thanx, that would be good. I am sure everyone is curious as to what the heck they were trying to do. OOOPs it looks like they forgot to install a duct system was kinda the consensus. It amazes me all the different styles of HVAC ducting and systems across North America. In Canada it is mostly the standard parallel supply and return duct system with branch offs. In the US you get a lot of return from one location systems with one RA grill. Personally I find that unacceptable as I would want return vents AND supply vents in all my rooms for better circulation. Bathroom and kitchen are the exception.

Major pressurization issue


Had a brief conversation with the HVAC company today. I am still waiting for their final written proposal. They basically said that the duct work needs to be ripped out and completely re-done. They also said the units we have serving our house are undersized based on their load calculations.

We are bringing in another HVAC expert later this week to get an additional opinion on what needs to be done. They have already seen our youtube videos and lets just say they don't have a real warm fuzzy about our setup.

Second HVAC contractor came through today, and we heard just about the same thing as we did from the first one. Major problems all over. It is enjoyable watching and listening to people that actually know what they are doing...

You are lucky they are available.

VERY rare that I or other companies want to clean up the mess someone else made due to the he said/she said and mudslinging etc etc that goes on when two rivals get involved. Just a lot easier to find good clean fresh start work and not clean up jobs.
