So I was talking to my Parents and they told me they we having central AC put in. Their house is a tri-level house. For those who dont know this style, it is basically a Y turned sideways with the bedrooms on the upperlever with a full finished basement below, and the main floor as the stem on the Y with a 3.5 foot enclosed crawl space with dirt floor below it.
Right now it has a warm air furnace (located in the crawl space) with large vents in the finished basement and smaller vents on the mail and bedroom level.
Because this is warm air only, none of the ducts were insulated.
This house is in Massachusetts
So here is what was proposed.
Install a 3.5 Ton 10SEER Armstrong condesor with an A coil in the return. Also a condensate pump. Thats it
So I told my parents this does not sound right
I told him to ask if a load calc was done.
What about condensate on the duct work??? Mold??
How will they balance airflow so that the temp will be relatively even.
The hvac guy mentioned that he could put in a dehumidifyer in the basement to control the ductwork sweating
