Particle Duct...

I've never seen particle board, painted on the inside, as ducting before. I told our HVAC guy about it and he wasn't surprised as he has seen it before.

My tools are always yelling at me cause the wife and kids take up too much room.

Re: Particle Duct...

That was a return wasn't it? Don't think it was done by an hvac guy, but it works

Re: Particle Duct...

I've never seen anything like this before. Just wonder if it wouldnt be the return air than the home owner would have to breath those dirty airs for their whole life.

Re: Particle Duct...

Considering that un lined joist bays used to be used all the time for returns that is some clean work

Re: Particle Duct...

The returns in my house are just the joist bays and drywall.
