        A:  The return air box is designed to support the air handler and evaporator coil, and is designed for upflow applications needing a side air return. Openings must be cut into the return air box to the appropriate dimensions in the field.

          A:  Thank you for pointing that out. We will make corrections to that information as it makes no sense. In the meantime, here is the link for the PDF that goes over the installation, and that may help: https://images.homedepot-static.com/catalog/pdfImages/b4/b46030c3-3dec-4ddf-b58d-a815a709ec75.pdf This return air box is mainly available for use with our WMP series modular air handler/electric furnace when the unit is to be used in an upflow application. The return air box allows for a side air return, such as our model RA16, to be installed.

              Q:Is this box enclosed on all four sides so one can cut out openings as required? If an opening is already on one side, how big is the opening?

              Answer This Question

              A:  The return air box is actually enclosed on 4-sides, and the top and bottom. The box is designed so that you can make custom cuts to accommodate the equipment, and for the side air return.
