You cannot use PVC in an are used as plenum air return, such as a ceiling designed as such. Sometimes a tile ceiling will be used as the actual return air duct for the air conditioning system, and no PVC can be used in such a space.

Very true, and very common for the above-ceiling plenum to be used for R/A in commercial buildings! :thumbsup:

When I worked commercial in S. Florida (high rise condos) we used PVC for the first floor underground and in slabs. After the first floor we transitioned to EMT.
