Hi Earonis,
If there’s no wall surface on the sides of your door (where there is no door jamb or header installed) where you can create an opening, you can make one in your doors or replace the solid door with a louver type. I don’t know the layout of the utility closet / room area and the surrounding rooms (sides, rear, above) so I can’t really suggest much more… Can you explain it in more detail?
