Return Air

How much Return air is needed for a 5 ton system with the blower set on 2000cfm .. I currently have a 20x30 return air grill and I don't think that is big enough?

What's behind the grill?

RE: Return Air

you should add at least another return of similar size strategically located in your home. one return even if large enough would not provide good airflow for a 5 ton calling for 2000 CFMs.


RE: Return Air

Maybe I will figure out how to add a flex return duct across the house..Hmm

The duct inside the chaise that goes up in to the attic is 27.5" width and 19.5" depth..
