Hi all, in addition to fixing that little problem with the condensation in the corner of my basement, I'd like to start thinking about making the space more "conditioned". It's only partially finished, but it is a pretty dry basement most months of the year. Only when it's very humid outside in the summer months does it feel a little damp. No water issues to speak of, no sump. We use the finished space as our "TV room", so we'd like to condition it at least a little bit. The previous owner simply punched a few gnarly holes in two of the main heat (forced air) runs that feed the main floor (1 story modified ranch). The warm air that trickled out of these holes wasn't making any difference in the basement, so I sealed them back up to feed more warm air to the main floor. However, I would like to get the air moving in more of a "circular" fashion. There is only one basement access, and it's a narrow stairwell. So I'm thinking of somehow letting the furnace "grab" some of the basement air in two of the main floor return ducts. If I just place a few adjustable vents on these returns in the basement, will that help? I just think I need to somehow get the basement air involved more in the whole-house circulation...and this seems to be an easy way...even though there wouldn't be any warm air re-entering the basement. We're probably going to install some baseboard heaters for that next winter. Sorry for the disjointed post...it's difficult to explain. Perhaps I'll take a few pics tonight and post them up.
