HVAC Insulation

Can you use ""Zip Tight Seals" or " Dutc Strap" to tight refelctive insulation around hot air hard pipes for the furnace?

Also, how would you secure the dutc strap? Would you drive screw in the pipes, then use alumin tape over it ..or is a bad idea.

HVAC Insulation

Are you using Reflectix or something similar?

Their directions call for overlapping seams and (approx) 3" metal tape to seal the seams.

Are you using an air space?

HVAC Insulation

It is a reflective with fiberglass insulation on the inside and alumin foil on the outside. Not sure 100%, but there is a print with WCL.
