How to Make Your Ducts Quieter

Blog Introduction: If your ductwork is noisy, there are a few things you can do to reduce the noise. Placing neoprene washers between the wood and the metal straps that hold the ducting to the joists is one way to reduce noise. You may also be able to put insulation above your ducts if they are hanging from the ceiling. If your ductwork is encased behind walls, however, you should see an expert to determine whether insulation is a suitable solution.

Isolate ducts from wood with rubber pads. The simplest method is to place neoprene washers (available at hardware shops) between the wood and the metal straps that hold the ducting to the joists. You may also use acoustic tiling to create a sound barrier between the joists. You may be able to put insulation above your ducts if they are hanging from the ceiling. 

One way to reduce noise is by placing neoprene washers between the wood and metal straps that hold the ducting to the joists.
