HVAC duct insulation is necessary to deliver conditioned air at designed temperature. In other words, it has many benefits. First, proper HVAC duct insulation reduces the heat loss or heat gain into or out of the duct system which translates into energy savings and consequently savings on utility bills, at the same time adding to the comfort of the occupants. Insulation also helps to dampen the unwanted noise from the equipment and thus adds to occupant’s comfort. Properly insulated HVAC duct systems prevent or reduce condensation on ducts and equipment surfaces which in turn will prevent microbial growth. Thus, the building will be protected from moisture related damages to the structures.
