Are there any floor drains in your basement? Check the traps to see if they still have water in them.

what are the "significant problems with the system"? maybe its just a problem with how the temperature was sampled?

comment How to repair buckled duct work inside wall?
Are you having a specific problem, like trouble cooling/heating an area of your house? It's definitely a good find and something that could be problematic, but you have to consider the time/expense needed to fix it versus the overall impact.

comment Why does my washer trip circuit breaker on sanitize cycle?
Do you have a clamp ammeter you could use to measure the current while the sanitize is running (before it trips)? This would let you see if its pulling too much current

comment Chemical Odor in a recently bought home
A lot of products will off-gas VOC's when new - carpet, paint, etc. This is what gives your car that "new car" smell - actually harmful chemicals releasing gas. If this is the case, the only thing you can do is give it time and lots of airflow.

comment How to fix a sewer pipe leak in a prefab concrete floor
I'm not sure what a chemical plug is, but sounds like some sort of epoxy (two parts). There are other methods too like inserting a liner into the pipe, but these alternative methods tend to be expensive. I'm not sure what the price difference is between the proposed "plug" and ripping it out, but you can try, and then spend more money fixing it, or just do it once and do it right.
