Bad Engineering: Floor Ducts

February 25th, 2010 4:30pm Leave a comment

Please explain to me why anyone would put AC/heat ducts on the floor. They belong on the wall a few inches above ground. And this rant starts my new series “Bad Engineering” where I will rant about dumbass engineers who don’t use common sense when building stuff. And make sure you have a strong stomach before reading on.

Why it’s bad

I live in a college house with 5 guys. College guys shit a lot. Our toilet clogs every 43 minutes. When it overflows, where does the water go? Right into the stupid hole in the floor. I’m pretty sure it’s bad for water to go into our furnace. Then we wonder why this house smells like mold, piss and shit. I’m pretty sure we’ve had drunks piss and puke down those ducts at some point. Don’t even get me started with the kitchen. I’ve seen crumbs, hot dogs, potato chips and eggs get emptied into them. It’s nasty and uncalled for, and wouldn’t happen if some dipshit engineer put them on a vertical wall off the ground.

Solution

Put them on the wall about a foot off the ground. Problem solved. It’s not that hard.
