I got a bid for a remodel of my basement. the contractor suggested moving
the ductwork from the middle of the basement to the wall to save space (it
has 7foothigh ceilings.) It would open the room more. this would mean that
the ductwork would go at a 45 degree angle near the furnance, then to the
run. Some of the ductwork going to the registers/returns would be changed
from metal to flexible pipe.
Is there any schools of thought that would suggest NOT doing this? are
there bad points/good points? $9k for the basement remodel, which includes
two windows, framing, drywall, ductwork, and some electrical.
