Question

Wet Trunk Line


We live in middle Tennessee and just did a 1,000 sq/ft addition to our house. We insalled a second HVAC for the addition. The other day I was under the house and noticed that the insulation on the new trunk line was soaking wet. This seems like a bad thing to me. What causes this? How do I fix it? Thanks for the help!

You'll need to find where the vapor barrier on that duct wrap insulation has been compromised and repair it

Downflow? Might be a clogged drain.
