The duct work probably runs through an area that is hot and humid, i.e. attic space, and it isn't insulated.

Why can a gurgling noise be heard from outside the house every time the toilet is flushed?

In order for water to flow down a pipe, there must be a vent to allow the air to escape. Above a toilet, on the roof, there is usually a pipe or a vent hood, which is connected to the drain pipe. When the toilet is flushed, the sound of water draining can be heard issuing from this vent. In addition to the above answer, the air rushing through the water may be the cause of the gurgling sound, which is the air escaping through the vent to prevent the build up of air pressure inside your water system.

Do you have to vent a portable air conditioner when it heats?

According to portable air conditioning suppliers, Mobile Air, all air conditioners have to be vented. But, there are different ways to "vent" the heat. The first way to vent is using water-cooled air conditioners. This type of unit uses water to cool the heat generated and requires a water source and drain. Mobile Air's website, , states that water cooled AC is required if the ambient temperature exceeds 115 degrees F. The second way to vent the heat produced is by using air. Air venting is done by using duct work to vent the hot air outside or by placing the unit outside to vent right into the air. This type is a bit more portable than water cooled.

How do you get air out of hot water system?

Any propperly installed hot water heating system will have a high point vent. This consists of some sort of valve at the highest elevation of the entire system. Since air is lighter than water air will collect at the vent point. When the system is under pressure partially open this vent to allow air to escape. When water comes out the vent close it. This may have to be repeated several times to get all of the air out of the system.Open the hot water tap on the sink farthest from the water heater. Be sure the supply valve on the water heater is fully open.

What is the purpose of the Septic tank vent?

Any empty tank is really a tank full of air. If you want water to go into a tank or pipe or drain then you have to allow the air to escape out of it. We allow the air to escape through a "vent pipe," connected to the tank. When refering to septic tanks, this pipe is called a "septic tank vent." Unless we use a zeocarbon filter on the "septic tank vent", the vile air coming out smells like a combination of rotten eggs and ammonia. Some septic tanks are upgraded to include aeration systems where electric or solar powered aerators bubble air into the liquid in the septic tank. Although these systems treat water faster and produce cleaner treated wastewater you still need a "septic tank vent," to let the air escape from the tank so water can go into it.
