While performing home inspections in Central Kentucky, I sometimes see things I just have to share with others. A lot of them defy belief such as this one I found in an attic yesterday while doing a Lexington, KY home inspection.
Air conditioning duct work in attics need to be supported. Especially those made from duct board. If they are not supported, they come loose at the joints and all your conditioned air flows out into the attic.
Here's an example of a duct board duct that wasn't properly supported by the original installer. Apparently, it came loose and started blowing most of the conditoned air into the attic instead of the house.
Homeowner Solution - Christmas wrapping paper
A three pack no less. I wonder what will happen to the ductwork when Christmas rolls around, the stores are closed, and the owner still needs more wrapping paper! Any bets?
