I've been in stores looking for the right kind of duct tape, but no-one who worked at any of the large home improvement chains could tell me anything about the duct tapes they carried. Nothing of value, so I had been reluctant until I had the grand idea of reading reviews of duct tapes online, which brought me to trying out this tape.
First of all, the tape is very, very easy to work with. There is a thin plastic backing that lets you handle the tape and cut it to the correct size without it sticking all over everything and losing its adhesiveness in the process. Once you're ready, you can peel a bit of the backing away and anchor the tape, then steadily peel the rest away as you apply the rest, exactly where you want it to go.
The air pressure behind the leaks is so high that it literally tore off the duct tape that was applied last year, but so far (about 3 weeks now), this foil tape has held on tight without even a slight bulge where the air leaks have been sealed. I've run the air conditioner in the day and the heater at night (desert conditions in spring--cold nights hot days), and there has been no warping or melting of any kind.
A couple of the air leaks are occurring where the duct work "meets" the HVAC unit. I put that in quotations because the "meeting" is offset by several centimeters, making it impossible to create a seal.Read more ›
My upstairs central air suddenly smelled of plastic, so--with the A/C turned off, and my wife on standby at the thermostat--I headed up the attic with a fire extinguisher. I didn't smell any burnt plastic in the attic even after she turned the A/C back on, but the upstairs bedrooms still did, so I figured the problem was with the A/C or the ducts.
I found that the attic A/C air intake and various housing components' tape covers were flapping about. I removed the original foil insulation tapes, wiped down the surfaces with paper towel dabbed in rubbing alcohol, then applied this foil tape to cover the openings. I also took the opportunity to tape up various holes and rips in the foil ducts, which ended up taking almost an hour.
Afterwards, I had my wife turn on the A/C, and voila, no more funky smell. I've hopefully also improved the A/C efficiency ever so slightly with the hole patches.
