    New home with no A/C. Return air is on ceiling going into attic & then into crawl space into daylite basement. I wish to make return air go down stairs directly into furnace, eliminating heat loss. Is there any reason this is not a good idea?

    Do you mean ,locate it in the basement??

    Return(S) or return paths are needed for each room,kicthens and baths ,nee a return path only.


    A return path,can be the space between the flooring and the bootom of the door into the room.

    Point is supply air can't flow into a room that has no way to let the supply air out of the room and return it back to the fan.

    I'm not sure i follow your flow. from an attic to a crawl space into a daylite basement? "return air go downstairs" is it a two story house? Any other information?
