Re: Neighbor Noise through Vent Return
said by robbin: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.
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.
