I was inspecting a 5 yr old townhouse this week. The ceiling in the mechanical room was finished off. There wasn’t a fresh air intake in the room. The duck work was in the attic, and pretty much covered with insulation. No walking boards in the attic, about 18" of insulation. I talked to my brother who is a heating contractor about it. He said that at times they do add it directly into the return air. That’s what I was thinking. I wrote it up as fresh air for the furnace not visible due to the ceiling being finished off, with a comment that it can be added directly into the return air supply. Comments?? PS the furnace wasn’t a high efficiency one.
