i recently was told by my heating contractor that they would not replace my air ducts unless the asbestos from 5 boots was removed correctly. i found out that my cold air return in the back of the basement where noone really goes has been drawing mildewy basement air to the furnace and the cold air return is connected to a vent that draws outside air along with air from the 3 bedrooms. my ducts are probably 50 years old and i am trying to get them replaced or working correctly and healthy, but 3 contractors wont do the job,2 said $3,000 for only a 3 bedroom 1,000 square foot home which is outrageous, and i'm not sure if i should get more estimates or leave the asbestos alone and just repair and clean the ducts. the cold air return is disgusting when i looked in there and the supply ducts look ok. what should i do about drawing basement air? about disgusting cold air return? about asbestos wrapping? thanks take care
