    Real estate inspection. This home is selling for a tad over $750,000. Notice the restricted Hyperion plenums. Poor ODU air flow. Two returns for two different systems right next to each other.

    Pay that much and get this kind of quality. That is a shame....wall of shame.

    Didn't think they had 750k homes in Georgia, not after the housing crises.
    Always here

    Check out the pictures from the thread "Should another return be helpful". It is also a house in GA. It must be normal for them.

    Absolutely the worst ductwork I have ever seen. Makes these pictures look like the guy had some pride.

    See the same around here.. High $$ homes with the absolutely worst mechanicals possible. See it at least once a week. And people wonder why we don't get the bids to do new houses. Always get the call to go wipe someones ass though.

    So true jimmyed! He was for sure make sure that it was sealed with the paint job. Maybe he missed his calling. Would have made a much better painter. Most GC's around here want the cheapest air installation they can get so that prevents us from getting very many jobs. I just refuse to do a cheap job and work for peanuts!! If it wasn't for our service work it would be hard to make it.

    Many people won't change filters when its easy, then put two different size filters there and only one will get changed. The company I work for hasn't done new construction in years, always get out bid by the guys that do this crap, they get away with it because its the kitchen and bath that sell the house and by the tim they complain about the HVAC they've already been living there and its very expensive to fix the hacked in stuff even if you don't have to cut open walls to get to the crushed flex.

    last 750+ home I was in, one of the contractors was busy cutting floor joists out from the 1st to the 5th floor to install the vent for the fireplace that someone forgot about. just cause it costs that much doesn't mean it's worth that much.

    The only part of the job I like.

    Man, could they have put that CU into that corner any tighter? Guess that coil probably won't freeze...
    Which makes more sense to you?
    CONSERVATION - turning your thermostat back and being uncomfortable. Maybe saving 5-10%
    ENERGY EFFICIENCY - leaving your thermostat where everyone is comfortable. Saving 30-70%

    DO THE NUMBERS! Step on a HOMESCALE.
    What is comfort? Well, it AIN'T just TEMPERATURE!

    Energy Obese? An audit is the next step - go to BPI.org, or RESNET, and find an auditor near you.

    Where is the rat ****? Our higher end homes normally include rodent infestation. We call the custom home market "custom headaches".
