I agree...Someone else has to know of a better way. Sealed duct work is better than the void between the basement ceiling and the first-floor floor. Since that furnace is multipositional there must be a way they can attach the ductwork for both return and supply even if they do not run it down the center of the house. Perhaps next to the beam?

Furnace closet question


If they run both it will lower the ceiling height to 6 ft 5 inches. That's under code

Furnace closet question


I measured the beam it's 94inches from cement to center beam. I plan to use carpet in the basement to get the most ceiling height. 94inches is only 7ft 10inches. To the left and right of the beam I have about an extra inch. So 95in minus 8 for the supply duct makes 87inches. That leaves me at 7.25ft. If we add a return duct then the feeds off the supply duct have to go under the return duct. They said the feeds were 6inches of round tubing...

Now I have an idea that will enclose the duct to the beams which will then create a return duct. My only issue with that would be wiring would be in it which if I read is not up to code.
