return duct into back of furnaces
i have seen a few warm air furnaces where they didnt come into the left or right side of furnace for return air duct connection,instead they cut a hole in rear of furnace. every manual i have looked at the manufacturer says a big no to this. i am curious if anybody knows why and what it does or doesnt do to the furnace life or operation.
