Wade Paquin shows off us a creative solution to providing first floor HVAC. In this case, his client decided to finish the basement, but there’s not a lot of head room to work with. That’s OK. Check out this mock-up of his team’s solution which includes return ducts and supply ducts running horizontally, a wall system anchored to the bottom of the floor joist, a ledger behind the wall system, and a piece of plywood to deal with the offset.
Sometimes little details make a big difference, especially when you’re working within space constraints. This is one example of how to think outside the box.
