New AC System needs work already
We had a completely new AC system installed this past September. According to our AC company, the system was necessary b/c our former 15-yr old AC unit had a leak in the system among other things. We have a 2-zone system with 1 air handler in the basement and another in the attic. We also had the 2 outside units replaced.
After a hot day this week, the upstairs unit was not blowing cool air so I called the AC company. The guy just left and apparently the system (STILL) has a leak. They have proposed to run new lines/ductwork from the outside units up the side of our brick home (for free) through the soffet and to the upstairs unit rather than bust thru walls in our house.
My question is whether there is any way to accomplish this w/ better aesthetics? I plan to ask them run the lines next to the downspouts and then up into the soffet so that we don't have that line running alongside the side of our home. The color will be the same as the downspout.
