Save Money by Insulating Crawl Space Ducts Leaky, uninsulated ducts in crawlspaces and attics waste huge amounts of energy and money. Use duct wrap insulation for a quick fix with a big, immediate payoff.
How to Build a Easy DIY Solar Pool Heater. All you need is 4 two foot lengths of pvc, 4 90 degree pvc elbows, foam pipe insulation, duct tape, 6 mil black plastic and some wire ties. The project takes less than one hour. This design works great for above and in ground swimming pools. http://www.diyeasycrafts.com/
How to Locate & Seal Duct Work Leaks- Leaky and poorly insulated ducts (especially in attics) severely compromise the performance of your heating and cooling equipment. Sealing and insulating your ducts can increase the efficiency of your heating and cooling system by 20 percent and greatly increase air flow. (Lowering that power bill!)
Sealing leaky joints in heating ducts is easy, cheap, and can reduce your energy costs by hundreds of dollars a years. Simply buy aluminum-colored silicone caulk and caulk every joint in rectangular ductwork (clean the joints first with a household spray cleaner and a rag to remove dust). Use the caulk to seal around the take-off boots to each branch run. Buy high-temperature UL181 aluminum foil tape in the duct section of a home center and use that to seal the joints of round ductwork.
Did you know that you could go to Home Depot and buy a six foot long piece of foam pipe insulation for only $0.97? Well, you can. And you can take that piece of foam, cut it to any length you want, duct tape the ends together, and have the perfect foam wreath shape. Thank you Pinterest for that tip! I don't think I will ever be buying a wreath form at a craft store again.
