Ok so we are building a double storey house with 5 points UPSTAIRS only. The back of our house drops to a singe storey to the living area.
I have a plan to re-locate one of the evap air ducts (the one in hallway upstairs) to down stairs in the single storey living area section. Is it as simple as attaching a longer duct, using duct tape and re locating the duct in the ceiling down stairs?
I know there is room/void/access and I know the right path behind the plaster/studs/trusses
Re: re-locating evap duct, can it be done?2

If there is a way to run the duct, then basically, yes!
Of course the longer the duct, the more bends, the tighter the bends the less air will reach the end, as it will prefer to go elsewhere!
But basically you can get duct joiners, tape the existing duct to it, the new duct to it, probably overlap the tape if you can, then pull the insulation over the join and tape it down as well! Don't be afraid to use a lot of tape! Especially if it's 14" duct like I think it will be!
If your in Melbourne you can get everything you need from metalflex / westaflex.
