Adding new HVAC run
 
1 Attachment(s)
I'm adding a new 6" takeoff and want the duct to hang between the joists indicated by the arrow in this pic. It would be easier to add the takeoff to the base of the trunk line, instead of the top. Are there any disadvantages to doing it this way?
Thanks

Every ell you have to use to do it that way lessens the amount of air you will get through the pipe.

Good point - I'm gonna take it from the top.
Thanks
