Details About Asbestos Paper Wrap On HVAC Ductwork

  • White Asbestos Paper Wrap was typically applied to all 4 sides — to seal connections and retard condensation.
  • Asbestos Duct Tape was sometimes used only at metal ductwork connections.

Asbestos Paper Wrap:

  • Are papers made with 15% asbestos.
  • It’s typically white or gray.
  • It’s typically thin (1/8″ or less).
  • It was installed while wet — to help it stick to the metal duct surface.
  • As it dried — it became tightly stuck to the metal.

It Was Applied To:

  • Help Sealing Air Leaks At Connections
  • As A Vapor-Retarder — to reduce condensation on the exterior of the ductwork.

In 1978, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) banned the use of Wet-applied and pre-formed asbestos pipe insulation.

Does Asbestos Paper Wrap Help As A Vapor-Retarder?

Although asbestos paper wrap was added to seal air leaks — it can also reduce condensation on metal ductwork.

We could not find conclusive information regarding the effectiveness of Asbestos Paper Wrap as a Vapor-Retarder.

Why Asbestos-Paper Wrap (In Good Condition) on Attic HVAC Ductwork — Poses Minimal Risk

  • Supply-Air Ducts (air coming from the furnace) are under Positive Pressure whenever the furnace blower runs.
  • Any ductwork leak has air blowing outward from the leak — so asbestos fibers would not be drawn into the air-path.
  • People seldom go into attics.
  • Attics are well ventilated.

In Many Cases ** You Can Cover Asbestos-Paper Wrapped Ductwork (in good condition)

With An R-8 Insulation + Vapor-Barrier Product — Next Is Burying The Ductwork With Attic Insulation.

Prior To Covering Ductwork — Air Leaks’ Sealing Must Be Done With Mastic (on the ouside) OR With Airborne Duct Sealing (on the inside).

NOTE: We Discuss Airborne Duct Sealing Below.

** NOTE: Check With Your Municipality — If Their Building Codes Allow Burying Ductwork With Attic Insulation. 

** TIP: If Your Municipality Has Adopted The 2018 Or 2021 International Residential Code (IRC) — Burying Ductwork Is Allowed With Both.)

A Scientific Study Was Performed By Home Innovation Labs

To Test If Ductwork (Buried In Attic Insulation) Would Sweat

Location: South Carolina’s Warm & Humid Climate (similar to DFW’s)

The Question: When Ductwork Is Buried In Attic Insulation — Is There Potential For Condensation To Form On Its Exterior

In Humid Climates (like DFW’s) During The Cooling Season?

Ductwork Definitions:

  • Furnace Plenum: It’s the begging of the ductwork — and is attached to the furnace.
  • Note: The Ductwork’s Trunk Line Attaches (to the other end) of the Plenum.

Shown: Furnace Plenum (behind the vertical white pipe & diagonal black pipe).

  • Trunk Line: (starts at the plenum): It’s a larger duct that supplies air to the smaller Branch Lines.
  • Branch Line: (starts at the trunk line) — Branch(es) Serve Each Room.
  • Boot: (c0mes through the ceiling — and connects the Branch line (in the attic) TO The Register (inside the house).

Page 47 of 61: Shows The Attic Ductwork During The Home’s Construction

NOTE: Photos Below Are Representative Of What The South Carolina Home’s Attic Ductwork Looked Like.  Photos are of another home studied.

  • Figure 15: Shows The “Trunk” Line (definition above) — Was Encapsulated In Spray Foam (because it’s too large to bury in insulation).
  • Figure 15: ALSO Shows The (gray) “Branch” Lines (definition above).  They are compact, flexible ductwork with no modifications.
  • Figure 16:  Shows The Attic After The “Branch” Lines Were Buried In (blown, fiberglass) Attic Insulation.

The Study’s Goals

1. Develop criteria for ductwork (buried in attic insulation) that:

  • Uses common building materials.
  • Does not require ductwork to be encapsulated (surrounded) with spray foam — to prevent condensation.

2. Establish criteria to bury (compact, flexible ductwork) — to reduce energy losses (caused by ductwork being hung above attic insulation).

3. Develop guidance to help determine the reduced heating & cooling needs — due to compact ductwork buried in attic insulation.

The Subject Home is located in Lady’s Island, South Carolina.

Lady’s Island is roughly halfway between Savannah, GA & Charleston, SC.   It’s quite near the ocean, which explains the quite high Dew Point.

Test performed during August.  Typical Dewpoint: Near 80 degrees (+9 over DFW)

The Study’s Findings

NOTE: 37 Sensors Monitored; Temperature, Relative Humidity, & Dew Point At These Locations;

  • Outdoors
  • Inside The Attic
  • Inside The Living Space – at the ceiling.
  • Outdoor Temperature approached 95°F.
  • Outdoor Dew Point approached 80°F.
  • Attic temperature peaked near 120°F.
  • Attic Temperature Sensors (spaced at 3.5″, 6″, & 8.5″ above the attic floor) — varied by up to 15°F (daytime) and 3-5°F (nightime)

Dew Point Was Measured:

  • Outdoors
  • Inside the attic (above the attic insulation).
  • Within (inside) the attic insulation.
  • At a Supply-Air Duct Boot (connects air coming from the Branch Line to the register vent inside the house) located near a ceiling.
  • A/C produced cooled air at 55°F

(Compared DFW’s August Weather)

  • Average High Temperature = 97.5F.
  • Average Dew Point = 71°F.
  • DFW attic temperature can reach 140°F+ on a 95°F day.  Attic temperature is higher during full sunshine AND lower during full clouds.
  • Properly operating Central A/C produces air that’s up to –20°F — lower than the thermostat’s setting.

Source: https://www.radiantguard-psg.com/live-attic-temperatures-frisco-tx/

The Study’s Conclusions

  • Outdoor Dew Point approached 80°F.
  • Dew Point (inside the attic, above the insulation) = 68°F — 80°F during most of the day.
  • Dew Point (at the register — in the room’s ceiling & under the insulation) = 58°F To 68°F.
  • Dew Point at the register was10°F To -12°F lower than above the insulation.
  • Dew Point within (inside) the attic insulation was notably lower than the attic’s dew point (above the insulation).
  • No condensation was measured nor observed along the ducts.
  • Near the ducts (buried inside attic insulation) — there was No strong risk of condensation.

NOTE: This Research Study’s Conclusions (plus another source shown just below) Counters Common Opinions That Attic Insulation Doesn’t Lower Humidity.  

Another Source:

  • High-quality insulation offers enhanced humidity control.  Insulation is able to help keep moisture out of your home.
  • With the vapor-retarder ability of insulation materials — the amount of moisture able to transfer into your home is reduced.

(Conclusions Begin On Page 30)

By The Early To Mid 1980s — Most HVAC Contractors Started Using Flexible Ductwork (flex-duct) In Attics. 

Flex-Duct is used as a cost-cutting measure.  Both flex-duct material and its installation costs are notably lower.

  • Before The Early 1980s — DFW homes typically had metal ductwork.
  • Note: It’s possible metal ductwork was removed and replaced with flex-duct.
  • There’s typically a combination of round and rectangular metal ductwork.
  • Metal ductwork may, or may not, have exterior insulation.

What To Do With Asbestos-Containing Products

That Are; Undisturbed, Undamaged, & Not Deteriorated

Many Experts Recommend:

  • Leave Them Alone If No evidence of; failure, deterioration, damage, or having been disturbed.
  • AND is located where people rarely go (like an attic).
  • Encapsulate (cover) it — If it shows Minimal signs of failure.
  • OR Is located where people frequently go (like a basement),

We show one encapsulating product just below.

  • Remove asbestos-containing products if it shows Notable signs of; failure, deterioration, damage, or having been disturbed.

Here’s An Example Of An Asbestos Encapsulating Product

It’s Made Of Fiberglass — And Wraps Around The (asbestos covered) Surface. 

Rewettable Fiberglass Pipe Lagging/Wrap

  • It’s a canvas-like product made of fiberglass woven thread and embedded with an inorganic, rewettable coating.
  • While wet, the coating is much like a plaster-like paste — that hardens into a cast barrier once fully dry (similar to a cast for a broken bone).
  • Once installed over asbestos — asbestos fibers are covered and contained.

NOTE: Al’s Plumbing, Heating, & A/C Does Not Endorse Any Specific Asbestos-Containment Product Only Because We Don’t Have First-Hand Knowledge Of Them.

Asbestos-Containing Products Showing NOTABLE Signs Of; Damage, Deterioration, or Having Been Disturbed

Are Likely Releasing Asbestos Fibers — And Posing A Potential, Major Health Risk.

Asbestos Was Used In Homes As A Vapor-Retarder In Several Locations:

  • Asbestos Paper Wrap — applied to HVAC Ductwork (to seal lakes and as a vapor-retarder).
  • Asbestos Paper Wrap insulating ability is negligible.

Common Locations Asbestos Was Used As A Vapor-Retarder:

  • Behind brick veneer.
  • Behind plaster walls.
  • Under linoleum flooring.
  • and others

Asbestos helped these products (plus others)

Perm Rating Definitions:

A Perm Rating: Indicates How Much Humidity Can Pass Through A Material.

  • The lower the Perm Rating — the less moisture can pass through it.
  • A Vapor-Barrier prevents humidity from passing through it.
  • A Vapor-Retarder slows humidity passing through it.

PERM Rating:

  • <.1               Class I—-  Impermeable                   Example:      Polyethelene (plastic) sheeting.  Perm: 0.1 — 1.0
  • .1 0 – 1.       Class II — Low Permeability           Examples:    Paper-faced fiberglass batt insulation.  Perm:1.0
  • .1-10.0     Class III — Permeable                 Examples: Blown Fiberglass insulation & Unfaced, Batt, Fiberglass Insulation. We could not find Perm Ratings for blown or batt.
  • > 10.          Class IV — Highly Permeable           Example:      Drywall: Perm 50.

Source: https://www.aepspan.com/high-permeability-underlayment-blog/

  • Blown Fiberglass Insulations Perm Classification: Class III-Permeable.   
  • This classification shows that blown fiberglass insulation has some, limited vapor-retarding ability.
  • This Explains The Study’s Findings — that DewPoint within (inside) the attic insulation was notably lower than (above) the insulation.

Older DFW Home’s Ductwork Wasn’t Sealed

OR Sealed With Products That Failed In A Short Time

ductwork for hvac system

Shown: Uninsulated Metal Ductwork

According To The EPA ENERGY STAR® Program:

  • Duct leakage should be less than 5% in a newly installed HVAC System.
  • The typical home leaks 20% of cooled/heated air.
  • In older homes, it is not uncommon for duct leakage to be 30%-50%.
  • In older DFW homes, ductwork sealing products did not hold up to summer attic temps (up to 160 degrees).
  • Early sealing products (like duck tape) — failed in as little as a few days.
  • In A Houston, TX Study: The cost to seal ductwork (for a 1,650 square foot home) — ranged from $575-$2,675.
  • In that study — sealing ductwork reduced annual cooling/heating costs by $200-$400 per year.
  • The Duct-Sealing price range depends on the type of sealing performed.
  • Sealing can be done inside the ductwork (details below) OR outside the ductwork — with mastic.
  • Cost is much lower with inside ductwork sealing.

Exterior Ductwork Sealing Can Be Done Inside The Attic — But There’s A Simpler & Less Expensive Solution. 

Airborne (inside) HVAC Duct Sealant

NOTE: Al’s does not endorse any specific ductwork-sealing system — only because we don’t have first-hand knowledge of every system.

A Google search will provide contractors in your area.

Here’s How Airborne (inside) Ductwork Sealing Works

  • First, the ductwork must be cleaned.

  • Plastic is placed over air-vent grilles (where air comes into rooms), and registers (where air returns to the furnace).
  • An airborne polymer mixture is injected into the ductwork — under high air pressure.
  • This polymer remains airborne — until it encounters a leak.
  • At leaks, the polymer’s particles get pushed into the leaks.
  • The particles stick together and seal the leak.

This Asbestos Is Likely Friable (Shedding Asbestos Fibers)

  • It’s been disturbed.  Such as some original metal ductwork was removed.
  • It’s damaged.
  • It’s visibly deteriorated.
  • If you have Asbestos with either of the problems above — it needs to be evaluated for removal.

Mesothelioma Is A Form Of Cancer Caused By Inhaled Asbestos Fibers.

Mesothelioma Tumor(s) Can Form In The; Lungs, Abdomen, or Heart.

When anything containing asbestos is disturbed — microscopic asbestos fibers are released.  These fibers can remain airborne almost indefinitely and can travel great distances.

Asbestos Materials Are Either:


  • Durable products keep asbestos fibers safely contained — as long as the materials are not damaged.
  • Vinyl Asbestos (VAT) Floor Tile is one.
  • Removing VAT Tile safely must be done by a qualified Asbestos-Abatement Contractor.

Friable:  Easy to break or crumble by hand.

  • Friable asbestos materials easily release asbestos fibers into the air.
  • Damaged or Deteriorated asbestos ductwork or pipe insulation would be an example.

Inhaled Asbestos Fibers Can Become Permanently Lodged Inside The Body — And Pose Serious Health Threats. 

  • Asbestos is known to cause disease and cancers — and symptoms may not appear for up to 20 or more years later.
  • There is no known safe level of asbestos exposure.
  • Thousands of tradesmen who worked with asbestos-containing building-materials have died of related diseases.
  • Even though the use of asbestos is now limited in the U.S. – thousands continue to die each year — due to past asbestos exposures.
