Summer time requires a heavy usage of your refrigerated air AC conditioning unit to keep the dwelling cool and all who reside in it happy and comfortable. Part of a properly operating unit requires for the gas coolant line to be insulated with a proper 1" foam pipe insulation. The AC unit will run much more efficiently and effectively because the maximum amount of the refrigerated gas will be used to actually condition the interior of the home and not be lost to the outdoor atmosphere. During a home inspection the home inspector will help to identify conditions that could be improved so that the homeowner may take the appropriate action steps to correcting a deficiency. Pictured to the left is a hinged, self sealing adhesive backed 1" foam pipe insulation product. This type of product is typically more expensive however it is engineered well to keep a tight seal around the pipe.
