Keeps radiant heat out of ducts
Cool, air conditioned air will maintain its temperature in your ducts, even when the room's temperature is high.
Prevents heat from escaping
Insulates heating systems by reflecting its heat back into the ducts and prevents cold air from entering.
Improves HVAC system efficiency
When used with spacer strips, EcoFoil's HVAC duct wrap has an R-Value of 8 and greatly improves HVAC system efficiency.
Why insulate your ducts with HVAC bubble insulation?
Insulating your HVAC ductwork with radiant barrier can improve energy efficiency, enhance comfort, reduce noise levels, improve air quality, and extend the lifespan of your HVAC system. By reducing heat loss or gain through your ductwork, radiant barrier insulation can help maintain a consistent temperature throughout your home, while also preventing mold growth and reducing energy bills.
Works in any climate
Whether you need to cool or warm your building, HVAC duct wrap insulation can help minimize heat gain or loss as air travels through your ducts, allowing your heating and cooling systems to work more efficiently all year long. EcoFoil R-8 HVAC Duct Insulation Wrap is designed for application on all types of ductwork—circular, rectangular, or square—within residential or commercial buildings. However, it is important to note that this product is not suitable for outdoor use.
I'm always impressed when my order arrives a day or two after placing the order. Amazon Prime isn't even that good!
This is my go to product for duct insulation. Most of my work has been in 50 year old houses, so the prep work is most of the job, cleaning and sealing the old sheet metal ducts. R-8 HVAC Duct Wrap insulation is the icing on the cake. I have noticed that side by side with other products outside in the sun, the reflection from this duct Wrap will blind you compared to the other products I have used in the past. It has translated into some impressive savings when comparing before and after heating and cooling bills.
We're using the R-8 duct insulation for ventilation ductwork in our unconditioned attic. It will be buried in cellulose insulation. Insulating mainly to avoid condensation. Easy and clean to work with.
Easy to install & can tell difference in heat already
I had an installer install the wrap on my galvanized duct work in my crawlspace. Almost all of my original insulation sloughed off over time (1973 home) due to condensation and no vapor barrier in the space. I took readings with my infrared thermometer before and after install. My average temperature from the vents was raised 8.2 degrees! I should have done this 7 years ago when I bought the house.
Installing EcoFoil ductwork insulation is easy
EcoFoil R8 HVAC Duct Wrap Insulation is very durable, yet clean, lightweight, and flexible. It is easy to install and safe to handle with no special clothing or breathing equipment. Install spacer strips (included) around your duct to provide an air gap. Next, wrap the HVAC bubble wrap around your duct, using EcoFoil Premium HVAC tape to seal the seams.
