Cold Air Return Basement Ceiling
Cut into the cold air return that is on the ceiling and drop a duct down to the floor.
Cold air return basement ceiling. In the basement to avoid chimney backdrafting the return air duct should be only half as large as the sum of the hot air ducts. Even with the vent closed that area of the basement stays pretty cool even in the hottest part of the summer. It will prevent mold and solve why your basement is cold all the.
Essentially that allows the warm air to circulate better. This video alone solve many common issues with basements. The only places ive ever seen cold air returns in the ceiling is undeveloped basements easyier for the builder and developed basements where the contractor didn t sell lowering the vent and now they have a cold basement.
There is no cold air return. I would like to put at least one cold air return in the basement if recommended. Main level is 1300 sq and basement is 650sq ft finished and 650 sq ft unfinished.
What is different in the basement is that most of the ductwork is on the ceiling. The finished section has one large room with 2 heat ac vents and one small room with one heat ac vent all vents in the ceiling. The basement one should be on the floor not the ceiling of the basement.
The basement is no exception to the rule. Unlike supply vents return vents do not need to be cased in metal. The basement has zero returns for cold air.
There is an ac heat vent cut into the ceiling. This is how an adequately positioned cold air return vent will help make your basement warmer. If you leave a cold air return opening on the ceiling it will simply steal all the hot air from the ceiling and return it to the furnace and the cold air on the floor will never move.
