I don’t enjoy the way that modern houses are built in my village.
- The developers get the cheapest businesss that they can find, often 1s with reviews so bad that members of the public will refuse paying for their service.
You have so more than 2 things that could go wrong with the foundation alone. My friend’s modern home was plagued with sewer gas troubles because the pipes were laid inofficially & the concrete foundation pushed them further out of alignment as it settled in more than four 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 modern home from the pulled p-traps. I also hated how they installed his air conditioning upon finishing the house. They insisted on hanging it from the ceiling in the garage, in area because it’s cheaper & easier than running refrigerant & condensate lines into the heart of the house. He kept having issues with the air handler cold up as ice would form on the coil & impede both air flow & natural defrosting effects. This pushed him to talk to a local Heating & A/C business about getting a modern air conditioning & finding a better location for the air handler. After getting it put into an old coat closet, the modern air conditioning works much better than the old 1. They have the same air cooling capacity & the same SEER value, however the modern 1 never freezes over. All of that hot garage air is no longer affecting the energy efficiency of his Heating & A/C system.
