Read all the info and still confused about this. Main floor of house has two bedrooms, one bathroom, large cathedral living room and large kitchen. Finished, partially underground basement has bathroom, large bedroom and two hallways. All utilities are in back of basement seperated by doors from finished basement. A large (unheated) enclosed stairway connects up & downstairs. There is only one return in living room above furnace. Is that enough? Basement is new, stairway is new. Bedroom in basement has one register midway up wall right in front of furnace and never gets warm enough.

Downstairs there are no returns at all. There is one register in the bedroom and one over the laundry area. There is no headroom left to run any new ducts (the ceiling is dropped, filled with insulation and the other ducts and just meets height code) now what do I do?
