Installing Cold Air Return (Basement)
Hello, in the place we bought which has a finished basement, there is not a cold air return. I want to install one. Because it is finished, the easiest way would be taping into the cold air return approx 2 feet from the furnace to run my line.
Is this acceptable? Any opinions appreciated.

Maybe. Is the filter for the furnace located at the furnace or is it located in the return air grille? Is there a supply air plenum on the furnace with multiple supply air ducts or a single supply air trunk duct with branches?

There are more questions but please answer these first.

The filter is located in the air return grille (b/w cold air and furnace) and there is a single trunk with branches.

Thanks in advance for your replies
