|Here on this page I would like to introduce one of the cases of the cold air return for the finished basement:
1. List of materials needed for the project:
Single sheeting 14” x 6” Frame 6” Round Elbow 6” Pipe
2. List of the tools needed for the project:
Cordless drill Hammer Red aviation snips Replaceable-blade Snips
Tape Measure Flat Screwdriver Magic Marker Scratch awl
When people are finishing their basements off, they are usually creating a mechanical room. This room is serving not only the purpose of separating noisy heating equipment such as furnace and water heater, but also serves as a storage room. From the ductwork installation point of view, it makes easier to install a cold air return.
In order to better organize an explanation of the execution of this project I would like to divide it in several steps:
Step # 1 – 14” x 6” Frame installation:
As you see in P. 1 “14” x 6” Frame” is installed on the face side of the wall 8” above the floor. A frame in the picture is made on field from 2 ½” x ½” x 26” sheet metal angle. If you have this kind of material you have to do the following:
- Take a sheet metal angle in the left hand folded side up with the tape measure hooked up to the right end of it and by using red aviation snips make a short cut at the 6” mark on the wide side
