    Agree. I already used mastic foil tape to cover up the tiny holes I saw. I can't see any others from that vantage point (looking through the hole where the current grill is) so short of ripping...

    First off, thanks for everyone's comments and suggestions. As always, I learn a thing or two everytime I post a question. I think what I am going to do is what Hube suggested in posts 11 and 14. ...

    For those that are curious, the house in question here is in the Philadelphia area.. southeast PA.
  4. Hey Hube, Maybe I'm confused (not surprised),...

    Hey Hube,
    Maybe I'm confused (not surprised), but isn't this the same solution you advised yesterday Jan. 31? Seems to be the same idea except now you are suggesting to block off the old passage...

    Now that may be even a better idea than the low wall return..IF there is no joist between the current return line and the future hole in the floor. One concern (for either) is that in the future,...

    Wow, a great idea..I totally can envision what you're talking about and it'd probably only take me an hour or so. The only problem is that the bottom 3 feet or so of the wall is covered by...
  7. No supply nor return in the hall. That was the...

    No supply nor return in the hall. That was the original build. Below the room is a kitchen, a wide open eat in kitchen with no place to do the return. That was why the HVAC put it where he did. ...

    The hallway is basically a 6x8 area with 3 bedrooms and a small bath shooting off of that area. The two bedrooms (other than the one in question) each have a working, undisturbed return; the bath...
  9. Return on an outside wall! Keep it, or shut it off and insulate the bay? Help?

    Hello all,
    This site is the best, so I'm hoping someone can help me out with a major problem I just discovered with my forced air HVAC system.

    We've done major reconstruction over the years to...

    Agree. The plan is to talk to a couple contractors and get their ideas. I just wanted to run the ideas by you all first since this forum is so great. I spoke to a plumber/HVAC guy already (sort...
  11. The more I read these replies, the less I think I...

    The more I read these replies, the less I think I want to use a heat pump. So if I decide a heat pump is too inefficient, but I want to utilize the existing good ductwork upstairs, yet still want to...
  12. Can you explain why one would need backup...

    Can you explain why one would need backup electric heat and how I'd have to go about doing that? Do you mean a separate system as a backup or just using electric space heaters as needed?

    As far...
  13. So when you say least expensive way do you mean...

    So when you say least expensive way do you mean the actual install of it? Thus, actually running it is not the most cost effective (I assume b/c I need to use electric to run it instead of gas), but...
  14. Is this a drastic solution? What would you do..?

    I have a two story house in PA, forced hot air and A/C supplied by gas.

    Due to numerous renovations and rerouting of supply ducts and returns, I have a lot of inefficiencies in the system. The...
  15. I just tried this with one of my other toilets...

    I just tried this with one of my other toilets and it works like a charm. Amazing what a simple piece of styrofoam can do.
  16. How long does it take a 1/2" copper pipe to freeze?

    I'm wondering if there are any calculations one can use to figure out how long it would take a run of 1/2" copper pipe to freeze at a given temperature? Assume each end of that exposed run is in an...

    Not exactly the comments I was looking for! :) But good to know!!

    No comments after I posted all those pictures? ;) except for jadnashua's..thank you.

    I don't want to beat this dead horse but I just wanted to see if people's opinion/thoughts/ideas changed...

    And here's some of the finished kitchen and one from the outside..

    You can see why it's a bit difficult to get to that area from the kitchen itself..
  20. Here you go. Good thing I am anal and took...

    Here you go. Good thing I am anal and took dozens of pictures during the construction.

    As you can see the pipes come up from the basement in the left/middle of the cavity but exit at the top...

    If I were to search for one of these Redy-temp systems, what exactly would I be searching for? Is there a specific model? I am planning on doing a Google search but wanted to know if you had some...

    Agree, I should clarify REALLY cold.. ;) Here in SE PA, it is not that often that the temps get into the teens or single digits consistently. And that is the only time I have to worry. I know...

    I think I may have thought of another idea. This little "cubby hole" is actually somewhat accessible from my basement. When I say accessible, I mean the floor of the area is visible from the...

    I've seen the recirc discussions in the past (I believe I had asked about it last year or so) so am a bit familiar. My only issue is getting power to under the sink. The stud area behind the sink...

    Wow, thanks for all the replies.

    I'll try to answer the questions all at once.

    The pipes go to an upstairs bathroom where they split off to the toilet, single sink, and shower.

    Rerouting...
