Few returns are in the floor, although it happens. Do you have a picture of your set up so we can see what you are talking about? http://www.doityourself.com/forum/el...your-post.html

If you are in the planning stages... First thing I would do is to HIRE a pro. If a HVAC system is not installed properly you will be very disappointed with how it heats or cools. A filter rack should be installed in the return ducting. I would use a 4" filter rack.

I think your area of "return" will be large, possibly too large to aesthetically put it in the floor. Is a wall return out of the question?

here is the link to the hydro duct fan coil that i will most likely be using. cutting at the bottom of the studs to run up a wall return vent worry's me since i fear it weakening the house structure.
