HVAC Duct Insulation—Making Sound Choices

Generally, when the words duct insulation and acoustics appear in the same sentence, I usually think duct liner and sound absorption. If I am having a more cerebral moment, I may think insertion loss or friction loss. But that is not all there is to HVAC duct insulation. While duct liners certainly play an important role in providing thermal and acoustical insulation for HVAC systems, duct coverings or duct wraps also provide important alternatives. In its simplest form, duct lining (traditionally fiber glass), would be installed in rectangular ducts as part of an automated process while the duct is being…

R-12: The New Duct Insulation Standard

As we see a cultural shift toward more energy-efficient and sustainable living, building compliance codes like the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) are being adopted by more and more local jurisdictions. The IECC is a prescriptive code that has established regulations for energy efficient buildings. The code is designed to help promote the use of new materials, technology, and energy efficient designs. Interestingly, both the 2015 commercial IECC and ASHRAE 90.1 2016 made a new change regarding the thermal resistance requirements for commercial duct insulations in unconditioned and exterior spaces. Specifically, these codes called for commercial ducts in unconditioned (IECC…
