I opened all of the vents today. It seems so counterintuitive to cool more of the house.
Yes registers and vents are the same thing.
The filters depend on the installer but no there shouldn't be another filter at the air handler.

What have you noticed so far about the change that you have done?

Gotta kind of laugh that a guys name on here is talking about trees.

So here's a question for you HVAC gurus:

My house has a main floor, an upper floor, and a finished basement. The furnace and everything is located in the basement. As is probably a pretty common problem, it's a giant pain in the ass to cool the upper floor; the main floor is fine; and the basement turns into a walk-in freezer if I leave the vents open.

The big issue aside from the whole "heat rises" thing is that the amount of air coming out of the vents in the basement is MUCH higher in the basement than the main floor and much higher on the main floor than the upper floor.

So I guess my question is just whether there are "best practices" to make the most of this. My guess is that the underlying issue isn't an easy fix. But I've been shutting the vents all the way off in the basement since it stays cool on its own. Is that a bad thing based on what you guys have been saying?

That's the same issue as differences from room-to-room which I touched on in the last paragraph. Open the vents, and leave the thermostat on the "Fan On" setting for a couple days and see if it makes a difference.

Frankly, the really big moves tend towards historically significant trees. They are very expensive and the equipment is rare.

My cousin runs a spade quite a bit and makes a shitload from 4-6 diameter trees. The nurseries can't keep up with the demand of that size Acer freemanii 'Jeffersred' (Autumn Blaze Maple). I've never really asked what size is his max profit margin. He's got a trailer that will haul three small transplants and I think that's probably a good chunk of change.





Here's the basic method for preparing the rootball.

That's intense. How much does it cost to move a big tree like the one in the second photo?

I wouldn't know the cost, but judging from the graphic it takes a year and a half to get the thing ready!

You've got to REALLY love a tree to put that kind of money and effort down.
