Hello everyone, first time poster here. I just moved into my new home, and I'm looking to get some work done by a professional to my HVAC system. But before I speak to him/her, I'm hoping to get some input on what's possible and not possible.
On the ground floor I have a small 68"x38" closet that contains a blower and gas furnace (water-less boiler is located elsewhere).
Basically, my issue is noise, and developer isn't willing to provide me with information regarding the handler and furnace. I did find out that a louvered door is NOT required. So there are metal double doors in place.
I want to look into the possibility of sealing/soundproofing the doors to attenuate the noise, but I don't know what the combustion air requirements are, and if my unit requires the cracks in b/t the doors to draw air. The manual indicated that one of the white pipes is a combustion air pipe. Does this mean that sealing the doors is ok? Or if not, should I be looking into having someone 1 - create another opening for combustion air inside or 2 - have a duct installed in to draw air from outside?
Any input/feedback would be appreciated! Thanks.
