Bought a home in a nice neighborhood a few years ago and have been slowly
fixing it up. The front part of the L-shaped ranch was built around 1945,
and the addition was built on around the late 1950's. When we bought the
house, the original oil burning furnace was still there - someone had
converted it over to gas - but we knew when we bought the house that it had
to go. There is one air return, it is in a small hallway near the utility
room (where the furnace is) on the floor.
Had a Bryant energy efficient furnace & puron central air conditioner put
in. The new furnace & central air works great in the front part of the house
and most of the addition, but it doesn't get to the master bedroom. I can
feel some air, but it's like it dribbles out.
I had a HVAC company come out and check the ducts, they said that it would
cost $200 to have some people check all the ducts for leaks or $2000 to have
the entire house re-ducted.
I just put in more insulation hoping that will help, what else can anyone
suggest I do? The run from the the utility room to the master bedroom is
probably 150 feet (rough guess).
