Placement of Cold Air Returns in Basement
Finishing off my basement in Minnesota. There will be 2 bedrooms. Due to the layout of the rooms and the design of the existing ductwork, I have the same two placement options for cold air returns in both bedrooms: interior part of the room in the ceiling or exterior wall (floor or ceiling). I will be putting the heat registers in the ceiling in both rooms. What is the best option for the cold air returns given my northern climate?
