Questions for today’s inspection.
Home has a dual fuel 11 year old forced air, heat pump system.
A 9 year old gas water heater in an unfinished basement venting to a metal chimney.
Patio enclosure (uninsulated), there are 2 distribution openings at enclosure. ducts much larger than the rest of the system.
There is a open vent at enclosure that terminates by the furnace. The furnace is high efficiency vented to exterior with intake from exterior.
The only reason I can see for the opening is for make up air for the water heater, seems like a waste of energy to me.
I think heating, cooling this enclosure is a waste of energy.
What are you thoughts on the openings to the enclosure?
Also the A/C lines were held to the sub floor with modified plumbing piping, seems like an unorthodox method of hanging the lines. Any thoughts there?
One more question.
Home has a balancing, zoned distribution system, as a generalist I would not be testing the effectiveness of this system, what about you?
