hi I just bought a condo and it passed the inspection. however, now
that winter is here the heater doesnt seem to blow enough hot air into
the room. in the summer i noticed it took a long time to cool the
place too. what should i check b/4 contacting the ac/heater guy? TIA
In addition to telling us what kind of heat, maybe you could let us know
if it is keeping it warm enough and cool enough. Why do you think it is not
blowing enough air?
For the pros around here, you might also want to tell us the make and
model of the heating\cooling system so they may know the features of it.
So simple :: Get a pro out, If your AC coil is clogged from prevoius
tennants not running a filter that could be it, or is your filter good?
Either way get a Pro out, You cant fix it if you are here posting

Holly shit Ransley. A post from you that is correct, partially
anyways. Now you're just plain frightening.
Not to mention the fact that you dont know if its gas, oil, heatpump
or electric so all you and anyone else can do is guess.
But then, thats the way you work. Guesses.
Besides the type of heationg and cooling and recommendation to check
the filter, I also want to know if you have also checked to see if the
windows and doors are good and that there are no drafts and insulation
is OK, etc.

EXACTLY my point you fool hack wannabe. You spew shit like its advice
sent from god. You havent a clue and you just admitted it yet the
bullshit flys from your mouth. Whats wrong webtv boy. You try this
field and fail miserably then all the guys made fun of you? Now you're
going to pout in your trailer and teach em a lesson? Yup. You'll never
be anything except that turd in the bottom of your outhouse.
If you have a central forced air heating system (as opposed to hot
water, baseboard heaters etc) then you might also check to see if the
humidifier air bypass damper is all the way open. If so, consider
closing it a bit.
I learned recently after helping my BIL install one that this damper
needs to be partially shut. If left open, then too much air might
circulate from the high pressure (hot) side of the furnace to the cold
(return) side. When this happens, air circulates through the humidifier
back to the return without going through the house. I checked mine when
I got home just to see how it was set.
If its sized and installed correctly, it does not matter one bit about the
dampner that isnt used on half the installs.
The air you talk about, isnt being vented to the outside of the ductwork,
and unless you have a 16 inch duct feeding the humidifier, (surely you
dont..LOL) a dampner in most cases is useless.
