Trying to troubleshoot low airflow to kitchen


Gotcha. Do they make an 8-inch to 6-inch 90 degree elbow? I'd rather not replace the 6-inch boxes if I don't have to. Or else I could just add an 8 to 6 reducer and keep a short section of 6 to the box.

No.
Atleast I've never seen one.

A 8 to 6 reducing ell would be very turbulant, and counter productive.

Trying to troubleshoot low airflow to kitchen


Hey guys, I was poking around up there looking for the model # of the blower and what I got was Carrier 58RAV095-16. It's matched to a 4ton unit outside. Anyways I noticed a a duct from the return end directly to the outlet end. The return comes from directly underneath the unit. Is there supposed to be a duct connecting these 2 parts??? The smaller duct you see embedded in the insulation is from the upstairs unit running to a bathroom almost directly underneath.
Also the 2nd to last pic is the duct run (on the left) that I'm replacing, you can barely see where the Y is part the water heater, past the dust mask into the void
It's the curved duct on the right in the last pic, heck I hope there's room for a 12 inch collar there

Bump for anyone who can explain the extra ducting and if it's needed.
