    a poor man's air curtain would be to have a return set outside to positive pressure the house. it's commonly called fresh air makeup.
    The TRUE highest cost system is the system not installed properly...

    The Pool thing changes everything

    A living room. Very large, 20' X 20', but communicates with the pool area. So, when the pool is in use, the kids are in and out non-stop.

    3) A bedroom. Right by the pool. Less use but still, the door is letting in a lot of outside air.
    The POO: makes this a situation with a latent load that is offf the charts and more of a commercial application
    A chiller produces cold water and you can select coils that will deal with the high latent load whate "standard equipment will NOT

    Sorry to mention this but everyone in Fl has a pool that communicates with their living space, if I understand your post
    You have got to learn from other people's mistakes! Because God knows you don't live long enough to make them all yourself !!!!!!!!

    What if you positively pressurize the house? Any door open would push cold air out instead of hot air in.

    Why not build an addition over your pool area bringing it inside.

    This has been very useful. If for no other reason than this...
    Of the 4-5 pros I've had look at the house, only one offered the Bryant Extreme, and at a fairly reasonable price.

    But the idea of air curtains really makes sense -- short of redesigning the system.

    My question about that is, do they have to be mounted on the inside? I've looked at some sites, and they all seem to be inside mount. Trouble is, all the door in my house open to the inside. Is that a problem?

    Thanks!
