Insulation has a wide range of benefits for your home or work duct and ventilation systems. Properly installed insulated ducting prevents condensation on ducts, reduces noise, prevents formation of mold and fungus, increases comfort, and is cost efficient. At Ducting.com, we offer a wide selection of insulated hose products to meet the needs of your light or heavy-duty ducting applications.
The majority of our insulated ducting products are double-ply to provide extra durability. The insulation is located in between the layers of ply and is typically made of fiberglass materials. Fiberglass –or glass wool- is very cost effective, in that it does not break or become displaced when incorporated into the structure of flex ducting. This ensures that your insulated hose remains structurally sound and free of unintended ruptures or breaks at virtually all times.
The double-ply and fiberglass construction of our insulated hose products makes them durable and suitable for the transportation of both cold and high temperatures. Insulated ductwork is essential in working with industrial applications involving cold and hot air transfer applications. Insulated ducting is designed to keep the air being transferred through the flex hose at a consistent temperature whether it is hot or cold. Thermal insulation is the reduction of heat transfer between objects in thermal contact or in range.
An insulated flex hose also protects the temperature of the surrounding environment because it prevents any of the air being moved from leaking out of the hose and affecting its surroundings. Because the insulation efficiently keeps the air flowing within the ducting system, it reduces the operational costs over the lifetime of the hose. In applications like air heating and cooling systems, machinery does not have to work as hard to maintain conditioned air to desired temperatures. Heat flow is an inevitable consequence of contact between objects of differing temperature. Thermal insulation provides a region of insulation in which thermal conduction is reduced.
We carry a wide selection of insulated hose products to meet the demands of various applications. Several of our products are ideal for light-duty home applications involving air conditioning systems. Insulated ductwork is great for household applications because the insulation reduces the amount of noise that may escape from within the ducting system. Also, another benefit of the insulation is that it prevents the build-up of condensation, which prevents from harmful molds and fungus from growing within your ducting system. We also carry insulated ductwork designed for high temperature applications involving exhaust applications.
