R8 Bubble Wrap Duct Insulation

Collection: R8 Bubble Wrap Duct Insulation

What is Bubble Wrap Duct Insulation?

HVAC bubble wrap is a convenient and effective solution for insulating HVAC ducts. This insulation is constructed of a triple layer of single bubble insulation, with each layer of insulation bonded to two radiant barrier metalized sheets. With this design, the EcoFoil Duct Insulation Wrap provides an R-8 Value by reflecting radiant and convective heat. It also prevents condensation and is an approved vapor barrier protection.

The Benefits of HVAC Bubble Wrap Insulation

The primary benefit of using Ecofoil’s HVAC bubble wrap is to increase the efficiency of your HVAC system. Modern heating and cooling systems are designed for maximum energy efficiency, but the duct work that transports the hot or cool air has not been updated for years. Metal ducts provide no insulation value for conditioned air between your HVAC system and the room that it empties into. As air travels from the HVAC unit through the ducts some of it escapes through poorly sealed joints. A combination of R8 HVAC duct insulation wrap and high tack HVAC tape keeps HVAC ducts properly sealed and working at their best.

Secondly, the conditioned air begins to lose its temperature - especially on longer duct runs. The result of these situations is lowered HVAC efficiency and higher utility bills. Insulating duct work with reflective bubble insulation increases the efficiency of your HVAC system and can lower your utility bill.

Applications for Bubble Wrap Duct Insulation

With the durable and flexible design of this R8 bubble wrap, it works perfectly for numerous applications. This insulation works great for spiral ducts and rectangular ducts, and is easily installed in attics, crawl spaces, basements, and even under concrete.
