Why Insulate Your Air Conditioning?
The main reason for insulating an air conditioning system is to decrease heat gain or loss from the piping. Insulating the pipes also prevents water vapor and condensation from icing up.
Condensation can damage walls, carpets, and furniture. Therefore, the insulation also serves as a vapour barrier.
Two copper pipes exit the house and run to the exterior condenser unit in a standard residential aircon system. Only one of the pipes, the cold line, needs to be insulated. The cold line is the suction pipe and is usually the largest of the two copper pipes.
Insulation Saves Money
If your aircon is not well insulated, you might tend to set the unit's temperature lower as it may appear not to be cooling well. Therefore, inadequately insulated air conditioning can increase your electricity bills.
Over time aircon insulation on exterior pipes can deteriorate due to the elements. When insulation loses its effectiveness, the machine struggles to sustain the desired temperature. Therefore, you should check your outside insulation at least once a year, and replace it so your unit works optimally and prevent expensive repair bills.
