                           Cold Air Return for Finished Basement

 

Here on this page I would like to introduce one of the cases of the cold air return for the finished basement:

1. List of materials needed for the project:

     
Single sheeting        14” x 6” Frame   6” Round Elbow      6” Pipe

Sheeting Nails

Zip Screws

 

 

 

6” Damper

2. List of the tools needed for the project:

     

 

Cordless drill             Hammer               Red aviation snips    Replaceable-blade Snips

     
Tape Measure             Flat Screwdriver      Magic Marker    Scratch awl

When people are finishing their basements off, they are usually creating a mechanical room. This room is serving not only the purpose of separating noisy heating equipment such as furnace and water heater, but also serves as a storage room. From the ductwork installation point of view, it makes easier to install a cold air return.

In order to better organize an explanation of the execution of this project I would like to divide it in several steps:

Step # 1 – 14” x 6” Frame installation:


As you see in P. 1 “14” x 6” Frame” is installed on the face side of the wall 8” above the floor. A frame in the picture is made on field from 2 ½” x ½” x 26” sheet metal angle. If you have this kind of material you have to do the following:

P. 1

  • Take a sheet metal angle in the left hand folded side up with the tape measure hooked up to the right end of it and by using red aviation snips make a short cut at the 6” mark on the wide side
  • ........

This is a parent page. If you would like to read more you can buy an access to the secondary page for only $3.00. You can pay right here on this page by using a "Buy Now" button below.

Four more topics were added  to the paid page recently at no additional cost, like:

  • How to Measure and Cut Pipe
  • How to Put Pipe Together
  • How to Crimp Pipe
  • Installing Return Air Duct Video Clip

Installation on the paid page may not exactly describe your upcoming project. However, it will give you an important example of how this type of installation should be done.

Are Cold Air Returns Needed in a Basement?

I'm remodeling my basement. It has 4 heat vents and no cold air returns. The basement is always cold. Do I need to add cold air returns to get the warm air to circulate? If so , can they be cut right into the main cold air return in the furnace? The furnace room has louvered doors so there is circulation to the furnace.

Basement Cold Air Return in Pictures

On this page, you can see pictures of all materials and tools necessary for installation. Pictures, which represent installation, are set in a sequence in which the installation was executed. There are 15 pictures of tools and materials and 12 pictures of actual installation.

As you can see in the picture on the right the original builder put a window too close to the furnaces! He probably thought that all this aria - from the furnaces, down to the window's end would be just the entire storage-mechanical room, but a homeowner had a different opinion. However, because of that I didn't have enough room for a cold air return to the left, so I ran it to the right.

In addition I've included some brief explanations, which made this page as twice as valuable!

Installation on the paid pages might not exactly describe your upcoming project. However, it will give you an important example on how this type of installation should be done. In addition, it will open the gates for as many questions as necessary to make sure that the job is done right.
