about my new system and how it was installed.
If you're not familiar with what I'm referring to, please see this thread:
Anyway, on to a new question. As you can see (hopefully) in the following picture, the air is distributed through a very long (30') and VERY expensive piece of ductwork.
On another house I owned the conditioned air was distributed via a reasonably sized plenum box at the end of the AH (vertical AH inside a closet then up into the attic), say 4' long with circular cut-outs on three sides for rigid round pipes to distribute air to various locations. Some of the round pipes split a time or two to account for all the rooms. Again looking at the pictures and seeing how much duct work I have in my attic, wouldn't it have been much better, cheaper and efficient to do a similar install here. Also, wouldn't such a system completely eliminate the undersized duct and "T" questions that so many mentioned?
I've always questioned this facet of the install and would like your opinions.
