What specifics will I need to collect to figure out if our furnace and A/C are sucking too much at the source/intake?
I don't know the proper terminology for these things, do forgive me for any errors here. We are in a
1,000 sq ft home. The air intake for the furnace and A/C is in our hallway near our bathroom and two bedroom doors. Any time the thermostat turns on, any doors that are within a foot or so of being closed are sucked closed, hard.
Is there a way to determine if our furnace and A/C are sucking more in than it should? Is there even a way to turn the volume of air down somehow?
Also, most likely contributing to quite a bit of our home energy cost is a whole house attic fantasy we no longer use mounted in the hallway right next to the furnace and A/C intake. Is it a problem having this whole house fan still installed?
The louvers don't actually open and close when the thermostat turns on, but I'm sure it sucks some air from the attic.
