Ductile is a coating that protects the HVAC ductwork from degradation and insulation de-lamination. Ductile locks down fiberglass particles that would enter the air stream. No stress of your insulation breaking down & no worries about your health.
What if just a little bit of water entered your ductwork from the HVAC system? It’s just a little water. No biggie, right? Actually, YES! Even the smallest water droplet is a huge deal! To name a few, it can cause the following:
-Rust out metal ductwork
-Breeding ground for mold, mildew, and bacteria
-Decrease Indoor Air Quality greatly
-Degradation & De-lamination
Although, water in the ductwork can cause many problems, your health alone should be enough reason to want to get your ductwork checked out. Exposure to mold can lead to allergies, infections, rashes, even alzheimer’s. The list just goes on and on.
When moisture gets into the insulation in your ductwork, a breeding ground for mold & mildew is created. Mold & Mildew will wreak havoc on the insulation in the ductwork causing degradation & de-lamination. Not only would this be tearing your insulation apart to later be replaced (more bucks from your pocket) but that delaminated insulation would be freely roaming the air in an occupied space, where occupants are breathing.
