KIRKWOOD, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

One man's dream of owning a home became a reality, but turned into a nightmare when he made a shocking discovery about its ventilation system.

First-time homeowner Robert Jones realized the vents inside his new house were not connected to the furnace and air conditioner.

"I tried to turn on my heat, and there was nothing but cold air blowing out," said Jones.

Angry and frustrated, the Kirkwood homeowner wanted to know how the home even passed inspection with serious duct work issues and fake vents.

Jones contacted News 4 Investigate's Lauren Trager for help, and got results.
