I have a house that was built in 1951. The heat ducts are near the
ceiling and the return ducts are by the floor. I always found that
unusual since heat is supposed to rise. Is that how houses were built
back then? What was the purpose behind setting stuff up that way?
Purpose is that you can not have duct that is suitable
for heat and the AC compromised had to be made
what you have is ideal for AC system if one have
been install if not that makes it easy for you to install one
I wish that I have forced air heating system but I don't

#7 "why in the FUCK are you posting HVAC advice"

All is well Dido
This is the same Dildo who posted and said to CLOSE the return air upstairs
to get better cooling!
Hey Dildo! So, you want us to give you a clue as to why you're wrong...
Well here's a hint.....hot air rises...does that help you at all??
Since you are Pro. let me explain it to you in Layman language
Original post that person have made complain was as fallow
"I am getting to cold down stairs compare to up-stairs
first floor about 68 Deg. and second floor 75 Deg. is anyway
I can correct this with what I have.
this person Is getting to much cooling on first floor
but not a enough on the second floor
also I believe he said that his AC is located in basement
Now Mr. LOBLAW know it all gave us answer what would you do?
My answer was close off supply air on the first floor
and close off return air on second floor
according to his posting these is single family
house there for I will summed that he have open stairways
which will act as return duct I will also assumed that
you as pro knows that cold air always goes down
unless you want change laws of mother nature.
Now does you thick head apprehend what said dumb ass
Ya, so you've just described the most common complaint there is about A/C.
He has stratification.
A layer of hot air upstairs, because hot air rises.
You cool a room by doing two things.
First, you have to deliver cool air into the room.
Second, and just as important, you have to REMOVE the hot air!
The LAST thing you want to do is CLOSE the return air upstairs.
How are you going to remove the hot air by doing that???
Hot air rises.
How can the stairwell act as a return air duct for hot air that is trapped on
Why not utilize the return air duct that was installed for that purpose???
Take some A/C courses before you try to answer questions.
