Features and Benefits

For insulating Exterior / Exposed duct work, we recommend our
OUTDOOR DUCT INSULATION (2290-48-050AW product) below.
Outdoor Duct Insulation
2290-48-050AW
HEAVY DUTY
COMMERCIAL / INDUSTRIAL

HVAC DUCT INSULATION
ALSO RECOMMENDED FOR EXTERIOR RESIDENTIAL HVAC DUCT APPLICATIONS
 
  Outdoor Duct Insulation is comprised of two aluminum foil facings, separated by a dual layer of
   polyethylene bubblepack.
The reflective surfaces help reduce radiant heat transfer, while the layers of
   bubblepack help insulate against conductive heat
flow.
 
  This insulation
product includes a heavier foil facing on one side of the material that is installed facing
  away from the
duct – exposed to the elements. When used to insulate exterior HVAC duct work, 
  Outdoor Duct Insulation helps to reduce needless air infiltration, and increases the overall
  energy efficiency of the HVAC system. When installed with an adjacent airspace, R-values of
  up to R-6.0 can be achieved.

FEATURES
97% Reflectivity for optimal thermal performance
Reduces heat loss from metal ducts – increased efficiency!
Forms an air tight seal
Approved vapor barrier protection
Quick, safe, and easy to install
• Can add an R-6 to the insulation value of metal ducts
• Designed to better withstand exposure to the elements
• Reduces heat and air loss from metal ducts, increasing efficiency

DID YOU KNOW ??

 
The key to maintaining a comfortable, energy efficient living environment in a home or building is to reduce the heat 
  loss in the winter and to minimize
cooling loads in the summer. One way to improve the energy efficiency of a home or
  building
is to improve the efficiency of the duct system. Ducts are usually made from sheet metal or flexible plastic
  material. A duct system
circulates warm and cold air throughout a home or building.

  Typical duct systems can lose 25 to 40 percent
of the heating or cooling energy emitted by the central furnace, heat
  pump, or air
conditioner. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, leaking ducts can decrease the
  overall efficiency of a homes heating
and cooling system by as much as 20 percent. The typical family can save up to
  $140 annually
by properly sealing leaks in ducts.


  Recent research funded by the Department of Energy
(DOE) and CIEE through Lawrence Berkeley National
  Laboratory (LBNL) found
that typically, a quarter of the energy (and therefore money) used for heating and cooling
  is wasted
through duct system energy loss. Source RIMA

How to Insulate your HVAC Duct Work with
BTUFOIL tm REFLECTIVE / DUCT INSULATION

NEW or EXISTING H V A C DUCT WORK

IMPORTANT: Be sure that your duct work is AIR TIGHT.
Check all joints where the duct work is joined together.
Tape around each joint with our approved tape.

  Basic installation method for Round / Square / Rectangle duct

  Cut 2" foil strips wide x 4' long. Cut off lengths as needed. Wrap the 2" strips around the duct and secure with
  BTUFOIL tm approved tape # 15213F or
UL181A Duct Tape as required by code, appox 12" - 16" apart as shown above.
  For a larger air space between the duct and the BTUFOIL insulation, cut & install an additional 2" foil strip over each strip 
  previously installed. This will create an air space and will keep the duct insulation from touching the duct work.

 Next completely wrap the duct with widths & lengths of BTUFOIL being sure to have the seams meet on top of the 2" strips.     
 (as above) LEAVE LOOSE, SO THE
BTUFOIL SLIDES OVER THE 2" STRIPS. Securely tape all seams with approved tape as
 required by code. ( Horizontal / Around & Vertical / Length wise )

  NOTE; In extreme heat & humid conditions if may be necessary to wrap TWO layers of BTUFOIL tm
  insulation
around any new or existing un-insulated duct work.
  This would generally apply to any duct work that is contained with any hot / humid unventilated areas.
  Duct work in well ventilated areas generally only require one layer.

EXISTING DUCT WORK

SAFETY FIRST

 Be sure to wear approved breathing / dust mask and protective eye ware before proceeding. 
 Watch out for exposed electrical wires. Watch where you stand, be sure to have solid working 
 surface.

 You may also Re-Insulate existing HVAC Duct Work using the same procedure. Just be sure to check your duct work for air 
 leaks first. Carefully unwrap the existing insulation from the duct work. SECURE & TAPE each joint. Replace the old existing
 insulation and secure
with 
BTUFOIL tm approved tape or UL181A Duct Tape as required by code. Then follow the procedures
 as above
.
