Got it. Since I have two small 6 by 6 inch supply registers in the basement, I need to put a small return there. How big the return should be?

Thanks a million!

Return Air in the basement


I would probably close off one of the supplies. And put 1-6" return in. With a damper in the return to close it down, if need be.
