When both of us were designing our house, both of us decided to finish the attic space to use it as a guest kitchen or hangout section for the youngsters, but the people I was with and I knew the space wouldn’t get used a ton by us, but our youngsters would savor entertaining their friends in the designated space.
The people I was with and I tried to make the room really certain plus fun plus both of us got the youngsters involved in the planning process, however ultimately, both of us decided to leave the ductwork plus pipes exposed on the ceiling along with the exposed beams, it was an industrial look that would be stunning, plus it turned out amazing, but a few weeks after the construction though, both of us noticed that the youngsters weren’t using the space anymore, and when both of us questioned them, they told us that the ductwork was too noisy.
Every time the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C system kicked on, the ductwork would rattle slightly plus the air was loud as it passed through. This was something that we’d never anticipated, but both of us wanted to fix it so the attic space would be used again. After contacting our Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C company about it, he suggested both of us install ductwork insulation around the ducts. The insulation would act as a sleeve that hugged the ductwork plus it would absorb any unwanted noise. It also had added benefits of moisture reduction plus better air temperature. The people I was with and I were worried it would take away from the look of industrialism, but it didn’t at all! The ductwork insulation sleeve was identical to the actual ductwork plus it blended right in.
