Ever since we moved into our house, we have been finding areas of the condo where the heating and a/c don’t reach.
- I had a single section of the living room that was consistently frigid in the winter.
One would suppose this spot would be by the living room door, but they would be wrong. The spot was in the corner near the stove. The only time there was any heat in that area, was when I was cooking. It was appreciate we had our own personal icebox resting in that spot. I called the Heating and A/C corporation and asked what I could do about this and the other areas in the condo that were impervious to heating and a/c. When the Heating and A/C tech showed up, he showed my husband and I how the spots we pointed out were the furthest from the gas furnace and a/c units. He said the HVAC duct didn’t reach those areas, which is why there weren’t any air vents there. He told us there were fans they could put into the HVAC duct that would help to push more heat into those rooms. This would put a small boost into the amount of heat and a/c that flowed into the rooms and it could help with our ‘dead’ spots. When asked how much it was going to cost, my husband balked. He said that before he put more money into the new HVAC duct, he would rather wait until we decided for the new system. He wanted to go with a ductless Heating and A/C system in the next couple years, and I would just need to put up with frigid spots.
