I bought a house that had a house fire set with lots of deisel.
It is not known at this point whether the fan on the unit was turned to on or it was set to cool, or in fact the thermostat melted off the wall and could have contacted the T wires by melt down.
The result was at least the fan was running during the fire sucking the smoke into the unit and the duct system. The main duct inside is black with soot and the outlets are showing some black soot.
The middle of the houses ceiling is open since I took the drywall and insulation out . 95 percent of the pipe is untouched visually on the out sides view so the fire never made it to the attic area.
The pipes will have to be removed and they have a material price of 1500 dollars.
I was quoted 500 to remove them so they will be in the floor in sections.
My question involves cleaning them with a pressure washer and possibly coating the inside rather than purchasing new ones at a higher installed price of 2500 dollars for fabricating and installing new ones.
What say you?
