Duct insulation helps reduce the temperature of air that travels through the ducts in unconditioned locations such as basements, crawlspaces, and attics. It will keep these areas cooler than normal.
This will give your home time to warm up in the right areas before it gets too cold.
Imagine waiting on a hot summer day for your ducts to cool. Your air conditioner is working hard to cool them down, but all that heat coming from the hot metallic ducts is negated in no time.
Ducts have different options for insulation. At times they are insulated with a foil blanket. In other situations, spray foam is an effective solution to insulate the basement.
A third way to increase your attic insulation is to drown the ducts with insulation. To decide which method would work best for you, consider conducting an energy audit in your home.
You can't separate sealing the ducts from installation. Experts say that this is a money-saving process and avoids extra work.
Ducts were designed to be leaky, but because they have fittings that don’t seal, they allow energy to escape when the air inside them becomes heated or cooled.
One of the biggest worries people have - for both themselves and their home - is cleaning up or fixing their air quality. Features like this one not only help keep the air inside the house healthier but also do so without costing you a huge amount of time & money!
