Reasons to Add an Air Return
There are many reasons you may need to get another air return added to your home, including:
- Your rooms are heated and cooled unevenly.
- You noticed some rooms lack air circulation.
- Your energy bills have dramatically increased.
If you notice any of these issues or suspect that your home does not have enough air returns, you should consider getting additional air returns added.
How Many Air Returns Should You Have in Each Room
When evaluating the number of air returns you need added to your home, you should count the number of existing air returns you have in each room and note their size. Each room in your home should have at least one air return. In the case of larger rooms, you may need more air returns. Ultimately, the number of air returns you need in your home will be dictated by the size of your home, the number of rooms you have and the size of those rooms.
Where Air Returns Should be Placed
Air returns are generally placed in hallways inside your home, below your stairwell, or in open spaces or rooms. The space they are placed must be strategic, since they will be responsible for returning air to your home’s HVAC system. When thinking about the air returns inside your home, you should also remember to keep them clear of objects and free of any obstructions that could interfere with air flow.
The Advantages of Added Air Returns
Adding air returns optimizes pressure and moves air swiftly from room to room. This will lower your energy bill, keep your system running longer, and keep your house at the right temperature. You can save money and stay comfortable with added returns in your home.
