When condensation forms around the insulation on your outdoor air conditioning system lines, the insulation begins to rot. Rotten insulation raises your fuel bills as your system becomes less efficient, using more energy to carry out its job. Fortunately, replacing rotten insulation is quite a simple task that you can carry out yourself if you have a little DIY experience and the right tools.
Here's how to replace rotten air conditioning line insulation.
What you will need
Note here that you can't get the right kind of insulation foam or cork tape from your local DIY store. You will need to source it from an HVAC supplier or online. Don't remove the old insulation and tape until you are in possession of the replacement materials.
How to do it
You can save yourself time and frustration by making sure that you have everything that you need for this project assembled before you start.
And that's it. You now have freshly insulated air conditioning lines that should remain protected from damaging condensation. You will need to carry out this restoration project every year to make sure that your air conditioning system continues to function as efficiently as possible.
If you don't feel confident in tackling this job yourself, contact a local air conditioning engineer for more advice and assistance.Share
