Hey yall! Long time, no blog! 😃😃😃😃 The house is coming along nicely. I've discovered a lot of things in the past year that I need to update you on. This post tonight, is about the HVAC. In Virginia, it's about 95 degrees today. My finished attic is also 95 degrees. It's completely unliveable. We closed on this house about 2 years and 1 month ago, almost to the day. The system is only under warranty for two years. It's apparently a damper issue. I had to call MEP, the folks RH work with about this. It's going to cost hundreds apparently to repair. I'm so disappointed. I hope the issue is repaired under a manufacturers warranty, or that a faulty install is to blame and it it can be fixed for free. I can't imagine dumping money into this system 2 years into a new construction house. We have automatic dampers. If you can avoid them, do it. Apparently they have control boards and so forth, which break more often than they should. The folks I spoke to have said they've been dealing with 3rd floor issues all day. It's the worst! They said the thermostat shouldn't be placed where it is and we may need to move it. This is NEW CONSTRUCTION. Im so frustrated. We have children without a room because of this. Why build a new home if it's still going to break so soon? I hope we get to the bottom of it and we hope that someone steps up to repair this without it costing us an arm and a leg. I'll keep everyone posted.
Other things I have discovered! The dishwasher that comes standard is LOUD. It always has been. Sell it and buy a new one. It drives me nuts. Also, upgrade to double ovens. I wish I had. Insulate the FROG access doors during the building process. That room is HOT.
