The insulation duct helps the air in your home to maintain the right temperature, so your heating and cooling system doesn’t have to work as hard. It also prevents moisture from building up and causing problems, such as water damage or mold and mildew.
Duct insulation comes in various thicknesses, forms (flexible or rigid) and R-values. Our qualified technicians can assess your ductwork and choose the best type of insulation to meet your needs, budget and requirements. They’ll use a highly precise ‘seal and test’ protocol to identify any leaks before installing the insulation. They’ll then wrap the ducts in either flexible or rigid fiberglass insulation and seal it all together with a quality tape.
Leaking ducts can cause condensation that creates the ideal breeding ground for fungi, mildew and mold. This can affect your health and may aggravate existing conditions such as allergies or asthma. Insulation minimizes condensation, which can also protect the wood around ducts from water damage and help prolong their life.
While duct insulation is relatively inexpensive, it can pay for itself many times over in energy savings. It can lower your utility costs, save money on repairs and make your house more comfortable. Plus, it can reduce the carbon footprint of your house and help save the environment. Insulating ducts in unconditioned spaces, such as the attic or crawlspace, is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to improve your home’s energy efficiency.
