So, it's going on week 2 that the basement is a complete mess.
Over the weekend we removed the duct work from the area that lead to nowhere and we reused (recycled) the ducting in an area where it could then be connected to the furnace. You know, you need that cold air to be pulled into the furnace and forced (hot air) out...circulation...I hope we start to notice a difference.
|Sure it looks like Jerome is doing all the work...|
Hubby also closed up any other holes that used to be a part of this cold air return which was not working, using some recycled pieces of the original ducting. He used some Great Stuff and some insulation too. Almost done. One more weekend.
|Someone's got to take the pics and be the supervisor.|
I just couldn't believe that an owner would spend the money to finish the basement and totally neglect having the cold air return reattached to the furnace...and then my husband reminded me..."contractors". Ah, yes. I was thinking (more like projecting) that the former owner's (which ever one of the many it would have been) would have done the work themselves...since that is most likely what we would have done.
In the meantime, he found this little guy.
Too bad for him,...poor guy, he is completely intact.
