Subject: RE: FWD: NEW STUDIO: HVAC, rubber, floor
I have not used any of these HVAC techniques due to my situation, so keep
that in mind, but you should be able to buy the insulated flexible ducting
from Home Depot. I thought I saw it there recently. If not, I would check
the phone book for insulation dealers. I had to do this to find 703.
Several turns of this should help attenuation effectively as long as the
ducts feeding each room are not connected to each other. They should run
separately back to the heat exchanger. I understand this works well.
As for isolation I am trying rolled roofing rubber under my
framework/connections and will also have a layer on my floor between
concrete, a vapor barrier, the rubber, then the plywood subfloor. I also
plan on going with Pergo. I bought this stuff for about $65 US and it comes
in a 10X25' sheet rolled on a tube. It should be readily available at most
home centers. I am not finished yet with construction but so far it looks
like it will work well. It is about a 1/4" thick and quite dense. Anyone
else have experience with this stuff or guesses on how effective it will be?
I will report back once construction is completed.
