So now if I reconnect the dist fans...does it still help to connect a duct from those fans that ties into cold air return duct from upstairs?
I thought I read somewhere that it would be more efficient than pulling the cold air to the stove off of the basement floor...because the air going through
the cold air returns from upstairs would already be warmed to a point...
If this will make a significant difference I would like to consider it...but not sure about the extra work if it really won't help all that much.
is heavier. When the furnace AND Hyfire dist fans kick in, warm air
is not going to suck in the return
ducts because the air
hasn't warmed up yet. Matter of fact, Leave the staircase door to the basemen open. You'll feel the cold air
RUSH downstairs. The Hyfire's dist fans are very effective. So, the need to add return
ducts is not necessary IMO. No need to add extra expense. Try this way first.
Don't worry about the Hyfire's fans being like "two left shoes". Cold air
will be sucked in. I'm sure LL thought of that and it worked well on their tests.
