Rerouting air ducts
I'm kicking around an idea and would like some input from ya'll.
I have a double wide mobile home. The ducts are run under the joists with the registers in the floor. I have four inside fuzzies (2 dogs, 2 cats) and a wife that all shed hair like you wouldn't believe.
With the air blowing, it can catch a stray hair on the floor and just throw it everywhere. This is especially a big problem in the kitchen.
I looked into maybe doing a major renovation to run it through the attic, but there's almost zero headroom in the attic.
So here's what I'm thinking. My walls have 2 1/2 inches of space in them. Most of these walls will be removed and redone with 2x4 giving me 3 1/2".
Do you think it would work if I cap off the existing ducts on the floor, and rerun an appropriate sized square duct in the walls, venting near the ceiling?
What do ya'll think?
