Five Things to Consider When Choosing an HVAC Tape

HICKORY, N.C. (June 2015) - Total system closure is critical to contractors and their customers. Without it, contractors risk costly call-backs to find and repair leaks, while their customers are vulnerable to energy loss, higher utility bills and system failure. Tape is an important component to achieving total system closure - and shouldn't be forgotten when prepping for the job.

There are many options available, each serving their own unique purpose.  When choosing the correct tape for the task at-hand, the following should be considered:

  • Application Technique
  • Code Compliance
  • Application Conditions
  • Strength, Adhesion and Tack
  • LEED® Qualification
