It wasn’t until our forays in insulation began that we became aware of the relationship between duct insulation and the potential to inhale fiberglass particulate. In other words, we all worked in office buildings, shopped in large commercial buildings for years, and had no idea that extensive ducting feeding us warm and cold air across seasons was lined with fiberglass. We were not rocket scientists then, nor are we now, but you don’t need to understand the randomness of plutonium decay to appreciate that lining HVAC ducting with fiberglass is probably not a great idea. Moreover, it is not only pervasive but often required by code.
To be fair, we don’t question the efficiency advantages of insulating ducting, but fiberglass on the inside of the duct…..that just doesn’t make (common) sense.
Happily, a fix seems like incredibly low-hanging fruit. Our appetites are up and we’re hoping to eat. Also, as this is not our first attempt at disrupting an insulation market so we have added a few strategic partners so as to address necessary concerns for those currently frustrated by the space.
For any enthusiasts out there please note the testing regime is complex, expensive, and not overly precise….read annoying AF, but fear not we will stay the course and do our best to get an alternative on the market as quickly as possible.
