Hi: I'm building a house and am evaluating a bid for my HVAC. The
house has full basement, 1st floor is about 3300 sq ft, 2nd floor is
Bid calls for Frigidaire 5 ton for 1st floor and basement, 2.5 ton for
2nd floor. Metal ductwork (not flex).
1) Bid puts both outside units side by side. Is that ok or should
they be far apart?
2) Bid only has one main return on each floor, no return registers in
other rooms. Is that ok? I thought it was important to get returns
into bedrooms where doors would be closed restricting flow.
Any other comments anyone has regarding reliable units or whatever
will be appreciated. Also, what should ballpark cost be?
