How Do I Install New Duct Lines For My Finished Basement?


I would go through the wholesale house. I don't think it should be a matter of money so much as a matter of quality. For the same price or a little more you can get alot better product. Theres a reason that its so cheap at Lowes.

Good luck!

How Do I Install New Duct Lines For My Finished Basement?


Okay HVAC122

I got the supplies from the wholesaler..

2 question for ya.

1. i am installing a supply vent directly above a window (i read thats where your supposed to do it... and the contractors that quoted me a job said its supposed to go there too). BUT, how far out from the wall should I come... whats code? looks like 6 inches to a foot is fine.

2. i have 6" takeoff that i need to cut into the supply line. i thinks its a 7"(oblonged looking) hole then goes to 6" pipe .. its adjustable. My bro-inlaw gave me his elctric shears to cut with.. cutting not problem.... just that want to know, do i cut a circle hole or the oblonged looking shape of takeoff? whats the standard practice to get a take off started? TRACE A 6" CIRCLE? sholuld slightly smaller right?

thanks

1. Not really any code on the distance from the wall. We usually com out 12" if possible.

2. There should be 2 indentations on the takeoff (top back). Set you dividers or measure that distance. It will be the radius of the hole needed. Hopefully this is the kind of takeoff you got.
