I have to remove a section of retangular metal ductwork from my HVAC system in order to install a sister beam to support a broken beam. Are special tools needed? Can I just peel back the metal band that seems to be connecting the sections?

Hello, you can peel back the drive cleats but just be carefull not to bend too much or it will be hard to reinstall. A pair of sheet metal seamers or linesman piers and a flat screwdriver is all you really need to remove the drive cleats.

Cold air from ceiling vents when furnace kicks on. Can blower fan setting be retarded to avoid this cold air? There also seems to be a cold air downdraft from the cold air return in the ceiling. Is...


1. You can't change the blower timing at the beginning of the cycle (important to keep the heat exchanger temperature correct).
2. The issue isn't that cold air is going through the furnace itself, it's cold air in the ductwork.
3. It's likely that the cold air you feel from the return and the cold air in the ductwork are related in this way: many duct systems are imperfectly sealed and not that well insulated.
A home energy contractor (weatherization or energy auditor) might be your best resource to seal the ductwork and add insulation.
If this is the problem, then the good news is, your comfort issue can be solved and it will also save you lots of fuel, paying for the work to seal and insulate in very short order!
Good luck!

I have the large goodman HVAC standalone unit. Why isn't the metal box which connects the unit to the home ductwork insulated since it is outside?


It should be insulated. It may be insulated inside with duct liner. If not you can do this yourself. With insulation or foam duct board.
