    We just had a new AC unit installed about 4 months ago. I noticed a small line forming about a week after the AC guys left. Now it has turned into this! We have noticed more settling noises in the house than usual, especially on the left side of the house (garage is on the right side). What do we do to fix this? Also are we safe staying in this house? Any help would be nice, thanks.

    Is this a pic of the ceiling? Is the A/C unit in the attic? Is it wet? We need more information to be able to help you.

    Yes,it's the ceiling in the middle of the garage. The A/C unit is in the attic (not above the crack). Its not wet or anything, and its the only spot like this in the house.

    Maybe someone stepped in the wrong spot?

    I think Ripxtoxic might be right. It's entirely possible that when the AC people were climbing in the attic that they put pressure on a spot that caused the ceiling to start cracking.

    You need to call the A/C guys back and force them to address this.
