When the people I was with and I were designing our house, the people I was with and I decided to finish the attic space to use it as a guest dining room or hangout section for the youngstersâ€¦ Both of us knew the space wouldn’t get used a ton by us, but our youngsters would appreciate entertaining their friends in the designated space.
Both of us tried to make the room really particular and fun and the people I was with and I got the youngsters involved in the planning processâ€¦ Ultimately, the people I was with and I decided to leave the ductwork and pipes exposed on the ceiling along with the exposed beams, it was an industrial look that would be stunning, and it turned out amazing! A few weeks after the construction though, the people I was with and I noticed that the youngsters weren’t using the space anymore! When the people I was with and I questioned them, they told us that the ductwork was too noisy.
Every time the Heating plus Air Conditioning system kicked on, the ductwork would rattle slightly and the air was loud as it passed through. This was something that we’d never anticipated, but the people I was with and I wanted to repair it so the attic space would be used again. After contacting our Heating plus Air Conditioning supplier about it, he recommended the people I was with and I install ductwork insulation around the ducts. The insulation would act as a sleeve that hugged the ductwork and it would absorb any unwanted noise. It also had added benefits of moisture reduction and better air temperature. Both of us were concerned 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 and it blended right in.
