Venting in basement

Post by tpirovol » Fri May 11, 2018 9:27 pm

Hey Guys,

Plan on adding venting to the main trunk for finishing my basement. I am adding 3x vents with dampers for 500sqft.

Just wondering two things?
1) Does it matter if I damper from the main trunk or just before the register?
2) What size supplies should I use? I was going to use 6” supplies.

Thanks T

for dampers you are referring to the round inline dampers ? They are not really used here so I am not sure what to tell you but I would suspect they should be near the trunk.
5" supplies should be more then sufficient.
