EcoFoil® HVAC duct insulation works to increase the energy efficiency of your home's or building's heating and cooling system by insulating the duct work. R8 duct insulation is a product you can install yourself for increased energy savings at home. HVAC duct insulation uses bubble insulation cut to size for duct wrap specifically. R8 duct insulation means that the average R value of this application for bubble insulation is 8. The HVAC duct insulation also includes spacer strips which are essential to create an airspace to allow the foil to work properly.
- R-Value = 8.0
- Roll is 48"W x 50' Long (200 sq ft)
- Thermal value unaffected by moisture or humidity
- Reflects radiant heat using reflective foil technology and insulates your duct from convective heat loss
- Prevents exterior buildup of condensation and does not harbor mold, mildew or fungal growth
- Saves energy, money and is easy to install
- Includes spacer strips which are applied at 2' intervals for a consistent airspace around the duct.
