Landon Home @ Richwoods coominity in Frisco ( AC noise)

Asked by Tan, Irving, TX Mon Jul 22, 2013

Planning to buy a home at Richwoods coominity in Frisco from Landon Homes. When I see one spec. home, I find the air conditioner upstair has ac vents close to the ground. It was making lot of noise and I asked the sales person why its like this. He gave some energy saving funda which I was not impressed. Can anyone pls. share any info on this issue?

Have them turn the speed down to medium on the blower fan. To accomplish this, they will need to move a couple of wires on the unit (takes 2 minutes). I had the same issue and it is now much better.

I agree, Landon Homes in a quality builder; however, when considering the purchase of a new construction home, it is best to have a REALTOR represent you! My clients will soon close on a new Landon Home in Little Elm and they buying experience has been excellent so far!

Thanks all...This forum is awesome. I checked their model home and its of not less noise from AC. Instead of keeping in attic, they kept the ac on upstairs floor ( covered with door of course).

They explain this will save 30 % energy bill, not sure. But it does jave noise :-)

I'd also recommend a thorough inspection, to ensure the build quality is done correctly. I personally have had great experiences with the inspector below. He is extremely thorough and detailed, very knowledgable, and patiently explains everything he finds as well.

Landon is a good builder and I have shown properties in Richwood before and I don't recall hearing a lot of noise. However, even good builders may ended up doing a bad job now and then. You need to hire an inspector or an AC guy to check this out. If you don't have a realtor representing you it's best to hire one. The service is at no cost to you and you have someone looking after you. The rep in the builder's office is obviously protecting the builder's interest and not you.

Hello Tammy,

What it sounds like to me is a bad install job as there are plenty of ways to install an AC unit where it's in the home and is extremely quiet. I would say to you if and when you do decided to purchase a home from that builder get your Realtor to put you intouch with a Very GOOD HOME INSPECTOR and make your contract condition that the home must pass inspection or will be cured of all issues found by the inspector.

My only job is ensuring that you make the right choice for your family and i am committed to providing my customer with mortgage services that exceed their expectations. As always you can contact me via Email, Phone or Fax for personalized services and receive accurate unbiased updated information from a Mortgage Expert.

It should not matter where the vents are with regards to noise. Probably just have to take a look at it and hear it to see what the issue is.

Always take a realtor with you when looking at new homes. Normally we'll save you time, money, and a lot of headaches.

I have worked with Landon Homes before and they gave the reason for vents as each room having return vents so the A/C unit will not work so hard. I do not remember excesive noise. I will be glad to go with you to speak with them.

I am retired from the military and like to work with a few Clients at a time so each of them get the Full-Attention and Full-Service they deserve.

Proud to Serve You,

Surprised to hear your concern. John Landon. Landon Homes, has been a quality builder for many years. If the AC is making unacceptable noise then I would think they would address it to customer satisfaction. Even a seemingly small issue like this is why buyers need professional representation. I've been a full time Realtor 38 yrs and former custom home builder 14 yrs. I'd be happy to visit with you if you have more questions.
