After getting it put into an old coat closet, the new a/c works much better than the old one
I don’t care about the way that new houses are built in our village. The developers get the cheapest suppliers that they can find, often ones with reviews so bad that members of the public will refuse paying for their service. You have so various things that could go wrong with the foundation alone. My friend’s house was plagued with sewer gas troubles because the pipes were laid inrespectfully and the concrete foundation pushed them further out of alignment as it settled in many to many years. It got so bad that the p-traps under the sinks would get pulled from insufficient air ventilation in the plumbing system. This lets sewer gases into the house from the pulled p-traps. I also hated how they installed his a/c upon finishing the house. They insisted on hanging it from the ceiling in the garage, in area because it’s cheaper and easier than running refrigerant and condensate lines into the heart of the house. He kept having troubles with the air handler cold up as ice would form on the coil and impede both air flow and natural defrosting effects. This pushed him to talk to a local HVAC supplier about getting a new a/c and finding a better location for the air handler. After getting it put into an old coat closet, the new a/c works much better than the old one. They have the same air cooling capacity and the same SEER value, however the new one never freezes over. All of that boiling garage air is no longer affecting the energy efficiency of his HVAC system.
