Flair on intake vents?
I need to explain my HVAC setup prior to my point. I have a forced air system that has intake vents in each bedroom. There is also a larger vent in the living room and basement.
Would it be wise to also install flair vents on these intake vents or is flair designed with only output in mind? I'm merely thinking on an air pressure perspective here.
A Flair solution only replaces the supply vents and not the return vents.
All the best,

I think this is a great discussion to have.
When working with hvac in homes, if there's no return vent the supply vent is essentially useless.
In rooms which the door is closed and the flair vent is shut, return ducts technically could be creating negative pressure in the room.
Personally, I'd rather some negative pressure and the little amount of air circulation it provides. Sealing the room off completely (vents + returns) doesn't seem like a need (stale air room).
The main issue is for people who renovate basements. If you only have supply ducts and no floor-level return air ducts, the basement floor will always have a cold draft. But, that's not a flair problem :)
