Using a Sealed Crawlspace for Return/Supply Air Ductwork
Sealed crawlspace, Air handler in the space. Why don’t I use the crawlspace as a plenum, either return or supply air? Seems it woudl be more efficient, options for easier placement of either supply or return vents depending on which to remove. I am in central NC, so loads are not too terrible.
Note: the Dehumidifier provided by the basement company has failed twice in three years. Including the crawlspace would eliminate both the failures as well as the additional energy cost to run it.
