I’m having two new hvac systems installed. Everything seems legit, except that instead of putting an extra return for the downstairs system downstairs, they put it in a bedroom closet upstairs because it’s easier to access. Is this the correct thing to do?
The second story has two attics. One main one that feeds the entire top floor with return and vent ducts dropped down into buckets.The bottom floor has another system that is accessible by a little door in a closet in one of the bedrooms in second floor. That same closet now has a return in it that feeds to the first floor system. The first floor duct work is in between sheet rock, which makes it nearly impossible to access unless we cut into the sheet rock.
As far as the layout:
Upstairs have 4 bedrooms and a game room. There are two return intakes in the main area upstairs, one in the ceiling and another on the floor. Then one of the other bedrooms (my office) has a new return put into it. When the house was made, returns in the bedrooms were not done.
Downstairs, there is 1 12x20x1 intake in the ceiling and another 20x30x1 on the floor near the master bedroom.
There are two new 3 ton 2 speed systems. The house is 3100sqft.
