Cold Air Return (Basement)
A cold air return in the basement is a special type of wall grill that lets air easily flow back to the furnace to be reheated. When it comes to installing a basement cold air return, placement matters. A basement cold air return that’s close to the floor will ensure that warm continuously flows over the floor, which is the coldest part of a basement – so the lower they are installed, the better.
Depending on the geographical climate of your location, install basement insulation can help offset heat loss. Even basic door and window weatherstripping can keep warm air inside of your basement as well as plugging basic drafts. Sometimes installing basement insulation is not cost-effective, so it depends on the amount of insulation needed.
Aside from fixing and preventing leaks, waterproofing the basement also ensures that there are no cracks for outside air to get in. This improves the quality of your air and also keeps your basement at the desired temperature year-round.
