Sound from one bedroom to another through a duct
« on: February 07, 2004, 06:16:43 PM »
We are 2 bedrooms directly connected by an air duct.  Everything a person does or says in one room goes straight through the duct and is heard in the other room.

Is there something we can do?  We can't put a direct barrier up because that duct is used for the air conditioning and heat.

Thank you.

I have the same problem. Would love any advice. I just bought some air filters and am going to see how that works. I'm not too hopeful

Watch for vents to rooms that have a single common feed up through the wall- (or down through the floor to the ceiling below),  if you can peer though the vent into the other side, it means sounds in one room will transfer to the other room.

You'll need to open the wall a bit and move the duct off center to remove the direct sound path!
