Traditionally, engineers have selected air-duct insulation for thermal efficiency, condensation control, or noise control. Fiber-free elastomeric foam is an alternative to standard duct liners. Hospitals and schools have used it to enhance the performance of HVAC systems while safeguarding indoor-air quality (IAQ). On Dec. 8 at 2 p.m. ET, HPAC Engineering will host a free hour-long Webinar, “Energy, Acoustic, and IAQ Benefits of Elastomeric-Foam Duct Insulation.” Sponsored by Armacell, the Webinar will review data on elastomeric technologies that achieve the desired balance between energy efficiency, acoustic performance, indoor environmental quality, and life-cycle costs.
