Add Second Intake to furnace
I was just talking to the person that did a lot of modifications to this house over fifteen years. He said that our Payne Plus 80 gas furnace used to have two returns but when he added the addition, he removed one of the returns and didn't replace it. He told me that this furnace can have problems if it doesn't get enough airflow.
We have a room that's just on the other side of the furnace from a wall that doesn't get a lot of air flow. We've been using a fan to blow air out to induce flow. I'd like to put in a second air return on the furnace from this room but I'm not sure quite how to go about it or if it's something that I should try to do. I'm looking for some advice and pointers to information.
Some basic google searches mostly got me info on fresh air intakes, i.e. air from outside. That's definitely -not- what I want. So, now that I've changed it from intakes to returns, let's see if I get better search results.

Reason: Use the right words - return rather than intake
