duct work

  1. HVAC
    Hi, I am building a small cottage and hired a contrctor to do the duct work and install a dual stage furnace and an HRV. He has left the job unfinished with the furnace installed, the heat ducts almost complete, about 90%, but no air return or HRV. I can't get anyone to come and complete the...

    Does anyone have any experience painting or covering flex duct work? We would like to avoid replacing the duct work to galvanized but would like the existing duct work to be black in order to blend with the exposed ceiling. There will be an overhang over a bar that will allow the duct work to...

    Hi, We have a Frigidaire G6RC120C-20 furnace. It has an electric air cleaner that is separate from the furnace (looks archaic!) After cleaning it once, we realized how unrealistic it is to keep it. (It doesn't fit in our tub, and I'm not spending time outside in the winder scrubbing it!)...

    Hi, I need to cut a 6*4 hole in one of my 2*10 metal joists, to be able to run a vent duct from my bathroom light/fan to the main duct. Do I need to reinforce the joist? if yes - how? Can I do it at all? Thank you very much, I appreciate your help Bormanko

    Our basement family room has several vents, which were at one time connected to the furnace. The entry from the furnace duct has since been sealed, but the duct runs remained, and the vents were stuffed with fiberglass insulation and forgotten. Then we came along. I opened one of the vents...

    There was hot air coming from one of my vents so I went up to the attic and could feel cool air coming from the area it was in. I am assuming the ductwork has been disconnected somehow. The only problem: it is in an area I cannot get to. How would I go about fixing this?

    Hello I bought this fixer last October. Recently I have noticed a slow leak in one duct. I cannot tell if the leak stops if I turn the unit on, but I can tell that the leak is inside the duct and not outside the duct. Any ideas?:eek:
