I can try to find it but think a bit, hot air is way easier to move than cold air so in some situations properly sized and placed dedicated cooling ducts would save the blower from working too hard as well as the energy to run it. This concept was actually in place soon after gravity furnaces were being replaced by forced air.

I’ll look but no promises. I’m really busy at this time.
