i'm building a house, 1550 sq.ft over a full unfinished basement in Chapel Hill,NC. Been with working with two guys who's quotes are similar but One installer is using a slightly better components. Here's the unit I'm thinking of going witH
Variable speed handler
7 day program. T-stat
I'm building the house but don't know anything about HVAC. does this sound like a good setup? for another $ I can upgrade to the XL16i.
I want to put the main fooor system in the basement and worry about the basement HVAC later. The basement has a flex room, one bedroom, full bath, laundry room and the rest is just kind of play area. I have a 10 X 14 mech. Room and 16" floor trusses with two chases designed in them. 9'6" ceiling height, hopefully sheetrock basement ceilings when we finish it out. both guys are telling me to put it in the attic and save the truss space for the basement HVAC when we finish it out. I totally understand, but I don't want to put it in the attic. I have heard and read that everything is more efficient in a controlled space. Any thoughts?
I'll be finishing th basement in stages. after we move in the First thing to finish will be the guest bedroom and bath. is it possible to turn down 2 ducts for that. we could close them off when not in use. until we get the money to get the appropriate unit for the basement? is there one system that we could put in now to handle the entire house and basement. Does anyone here think that there is enough room for all the ducts for main floor and basement in the floor trusses
new to the site. It's very helpful. Thanks for all the info
