Can you glue to HVAC Ducts
Hi, sorry if this question has been asked and answered before, however, I cannot find it anywhere. I am finishing my basement and I have two HVAC ducts that sit below and are attached to the floor joists above. I was thinking of ways to cover the ducts with lossing the least amount of head room. If all else fails I will box the ducts in with 1x3 furring strips. My last thought was to box the ducts in with rigid foam insulation. My question becomes, can i attach the insulation to the ducts using construction adhesives? With the ducts getting hot then cold throughout the seasons (I'm in NY), will this mess with the glue and will the insulation fall off, thus bring me to square one? Also, will the insualtion be alright with the ducts becoming hot and cold? I tend to this the insualtion will be alright, but thought I would still ask. I hope I explained it enough and I appreciate any response.
