Duct Tape

This is photo’s of the plenum on an A/C unit in a house that www.reyesinspections.com inspected. It is just taped the problem with tape used as a stand alone sealant is that the glue that hold the tape on the duct over time in the attic heat breaks down and lets go then you end up with air blowing in the attic. the best solution is to seal the tape with duct sealant it’s a gray or sometimes a white sealant that will not breakdown like the tape.

This is a common issue when inspecting homes in Texas.
