Re: Neighbor Noise through Vent Return

said by robbin:

Not sure what code requires for this type of application but if your unit is using the wall cavity for a return air, then that is just really cheap at least and I would question the adherence to code.

All 3 houses that I have lived in have used a wall of an inside wall or joist cavity as the cold air return. Houses ranged from 34 to 50 years of age or so.

I would expect it in a house of that age, but not a new one.
