Cold air return idea???
1 Attachment(s)
I've been busy with alarm system and not put much thought into AC. I am crawling around attic running alarm system wires and finding leaks in duct work!!
Anyway I had a thought while I was up there and did a quick sketch. Would it be possible to run cold air return out of plenum, so that duct layed in truss's. Or should I go back to plan A ????

Where in the world are you - Ghana, India or USA (Alaska or Florida)?

A plenum is usually a tern used for part of the air supply system and not the return system. Not a separate sytem, but it may makr your project of stringing wires easily, but not usually advisable.

Hard to get the duct into the trusses after the gable ends are on.
