We've got air! (and heat)!

I mentioned in my earlier post about MLGW's contractors coming to install a new heat and air system in our house. Well, today was the day! The guys (all 7 of them) came in, took our old furnace and compressor, patched our duct work, and replaced everything within one day! We've now got a new energy efficient unit that actually pumps air through the house. Before we had trouble getting any air flow in one side of the house at all, and now we can actually feel a breeze. They said that there were a lot of leaks in our duct work up in the attic so I'm sure that had something to do with it as well. 

Here's our old guy (with Tyson as a model) and our new guy:

 
I don't know too much about HVACs but this guy's a beaut. 
I'll have to report back on whether there are any energy savings - our old system wasn't very efficient at all and we essentially froze our booties off in our bedroom last winter versus paying for heat.

Where in your house is this unit? Is it in the basement or a closet?

Ha! Good question - it is in our pantry closet, at the end of the kitchen opposite the back door. One side has our AC/Heat and our water heater and the other side is our food. We wanted them to move the unit up to the attic so we'd have more storage space but the grant would only let them put it back where it was not move it:/
