Are there any red flags for covering High Velocity Air Conditioner with blown-in insulation?
We have a high velocity (spacepak air conditioning) in our attic. We currently have about 4-5 inches of insulation on there. The local gas company is offering a rebate if we add in 10-12 inches of blown-in insulation so we can get a rating of R49. If we do this the entire truck line and supply lines will be covered in insulation and they we submerged entirely in insulation. The contractor we are using says it should help our air conditioner work better. I do agree but I have concerns about covering the parts in that much insulation. Won't it be harder to repair? We are currently planning to mark (with flags) where the supply lines meet the truck and go down into the house however, I am still concerned. Does anyone have any experience with something like this? I know a few supply lines will need to be repaired in the future and our handler is older 1990's. We already had to replace our truck line and a few supply lines that were crushed when we bought the house. The contractor I am working with is familiar with spacepak but has never heard of having to replace trunk or supply lines so he kind of thinks I am crazy when it comes to my concerns. Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.
