My home is on concrete slab, and the heat ducts are laid in the concrete. Most of the hot air is lost due to cold soil.
Asked by Thomas Gharib
Our home is 7 years old, 2650 sf and has two furnaces. One seems to work okay, but the other does not warm the rooms quickly enough. For example, I turned the second furnace on when thermostat was at 57, and after 1 hour, it warmed up to only 60. This happened while the first furnace was off. I have moved the thermostat for the bad furnace as far away from the first thermostat as possible so they don't affect each other. My previous home in Chicago was over 3000 sf with only one furnace, and it only took about 1/2 hour to raise the inside temp by 10 degrees. My home had a basement, and the furnace was there with all ducts running through the house. Is there any way to get rid of the ducts in concrete and somehow run them through the attic? I am open to any other solutions, short of selling my present home.
