Ya mean put 10"-12" (8" ducts now at LR+BR) ducts and HUGE registers on my living room wall that will look like a freaking office building?
Get over myself? You know how big those will look on the wall? Office building size.
Gymnasium size. You really think I'm going to upsize to that?
It's not the cooling I am concerned with. It's the limitations of quieting this system with
a small condo hallway HVAC closet. I was merely relating my attempts to quiet it down some.
The physical aspects of having motorized machinery. I already posted in earlier posts how I
successfully lenghtened the short duct from plenum to LR register. That helped a lot.
I related also that you better buy totally neutral odor sound proofing on an air return.
I'm just gonna use plenum board after learning the hard way.
Anyways..that's where I'm at now. Lol...getting there.
As a product...ductboard (plenum board) is the only neutral odor material suitable for
attempting to block or absorb sound for close quarters air return. Net sites don't tell you if their foam or
whatever sound absorbing/blocking product is odor neutral. None are. I found this out the hard way.
