    This air handler was actually installed in an upstairs bedroom. We are ripping out both systems. I will post "after" pics next week. -DF

    WHY was the plastic coating missing on the flex duct???

    Looks like the rats and mice put this system in. Just when
    I thinks I've seen it all.
    Whoa Maynard - that's not how it works.

    Flex duct

    You guessed it - the rats got to the flex. The house sat vacant for a little over a year and the rats overran the place. The new owner is doing a good job remodeling the entire house in a very nice section of Washington, DC. -DF

    The radiators are staying but the boiler will be replaced with a Burnham or Viessmann (ho has not decided). Basement system is a 13 SEER Carrier w/ var. spd A/H and sheet metal duct system (no flex). 2nd and 3rd floor system is Carrier 12 SEER C/U tied to Unico A/H and duct system. -DF
