Return air grille vs duct distance
I was just looking at the framed walls and noticed that return grilles are far apart from return air ducts. That makes no sense to me. I am attaching the image where they are at least close – but there are instances where they are 4 feet apart behind drywall and I do not even know if insulation is blocking the air flow or not.
Please help me understand. I am at a point of demanding they reset the return ducts (which on drawings DID meet the returns). But with partly install drywall it will be not a well received request.
