The other big change this week was the installation of the ducts for the heating. Every time I hear the word "ducts", it makes me think of this really cute Brivis ad:
|"How do the ducks keep you warm?"|
"They're stuck in the ceiling and they blow out warm air!"
However, it was a surprise to see the ducts in the roof cavity given we had specified them to be installed under floor. Turns out that there just isn't enough room for them underneath the house, so we don't have much choice.
There is an upside though - we were originally going to be organising our own cooling post-handover, however now that the ducts are already there, we have decided to get Keogh to organise it now for us instead (especially considering there is no plaster to get in the way at the moment). The heating and cooling guy will be back on Tuesday to upgrade the unit to handle both heating and refrigerated cooling. We also decided to upgrade to a zoned system, with separate zones for the living areas and the bedroom areas. All of this will run through the one ducting system and will be controlled by the one unit, so the entire roof cavity won't be taken up by the ducting system. The only downside is that this new system will require a return air (the old system just had a return duct), so we have had to sacrifice the cupboard in the study - but better that than cutting down the linen cupboard (I have a LOT of sheets and towels)! The "server cupboard" might have to go in the garage instead...still thinking about the logistics of this.
