we just moved in to this tri-level home approx 1300 sqf. which faces north. Below are the register distributions per floor:
- Living Room (2 registers + 1 return)
- dining room/kitchen (1 register, 1 return)
Walkout Basement Level:
-Family room (2 ceiling registers that connect towards main truck line in the middle of the garage which is on the same level as family room). Note: These are the two registers that blow very little to no air
2nd Floor: (Note: These registers connect to the main truck line that runs westbound through the garage which travels eastbound below the stairs that connect the 2nd/1st floors and down to the crawlspace below the living room.
All Bedrooms - 1 register 1 air return each
2 baths - 1 register, 1 return each
So, I had a guy come out, check for leaks, etc. He noticed that if we covered all upstair registers, there were some air blowing in the family room after the fact. The repair person's proposal was to cut out the ceiling drywall in the garage and then proceed to reconnect both lines with 45 degree elbow so as the air could flow more easily out to these registers. He is wanting approx $$$ for parts and labor, but thought I checked for 2nd opinions and thoughts. Thanks!
