What to do with old vent hood duct and roof vent?
Our new kitchen plan calls for removal of our old vent hood (new one will be in a different location). What should I do with the existing roof vent and duct? My contractor wants to charge me $500 to remove the old vent and cap the duct inside the rafters. Is this necessary, or is it okay to just leave it open (venting into the attic) and also leave the roof vent in place? Seems like I could easily save some $ and do the work myself if I only need to remove the old vent and any exposed ductwork, and fill in the leftover hole in my ceiling w / a drywall patch.
Remove as much duct as possible, all the way to the roof cap, if possible. Ducting will have grease residue so get rid of it. Plug the roof cap or use it as a roof vent until the next roofing job. Then get rid of it. Seal the ceiling hole with drywall and finish it.
When crimping round duct what is the tool supposed to be? You can use a crimpier or long nose pliers. You can buy both on the right.
When you patch large holes in plenum, what's best method to make sure patch piece doesn't fall thru while patching?
Will remove a 7" round starting collar from top side of plenum. Move it to another location. This is 1" duct board.
I would cut a "plug" to fit and use shiny aluminum foil tape to seal the "seam".
If you cut the "plug" about 3" - 4" too large and then cut back the fiberglass leaving the fiberglass the same size as the hole . You then have a foil "flap" to overlap the existing duct board . Seal with foil tape .

Condensate from Furnace Leaking into Crawl Space
The home is a 1400 sq ft ranch on a crawl (cement floor/walls in crawl). 3years old. The furnace is an Air Ease Tech 80 (2.5 ton). We live in NW Indiana. It's been hot and humid.....
I discovered a wet floor under the plenum and noticed the water was coming from the plenum. I opened one corner and a lot of water poured out. We have discovered some water the past 2 summers, but this year seemed worse.
