Placement of Cold Air Returns in Basement

Hello Forum

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?

wish you well on your company always tries to provide the best ...If possible we would put high and low cold returns with control dampers to adjust between heating and cooling this would be done on side walls again if possible.....
