"splicing" flex duct.

I am converting the "back-room" into living space and need AC. I have a duct that I can access by simply removing a bit of drywall.

How do I splice into the pipe(again, it's approx 12" flexable pipe), and seal it properly.

Thank you.

"T" fittting

You may be able to find a sheetmetal "t" fitting at your local HVAC supply

It sounds like you may be talking about running another duct off of it. Be careful as that duct may allready supply an area and if you put in a 3 way and take away from it you will have problems.

Thank you both.

I will be pulling from an existing supply line and am wondering if there are dampers that can be used in flex-duct.
Otherwise, I'll be able to accomplish the same thing by simply closing the register to the new room (a small lab 10x12).

If there is any other solutions for splicing the flex-line, I'd be very interested in your ideas.

Thanks in advance.
