When HVAC duct insulation breaks, or you are trying to tape together two pieces to create one nice long tube you can use in new construction ***, it is best practice to use Vent Tape.
Yes, Vent Tape is the perfect product for such an application. It is MADE to tape vents together.
Be sure you use the right thing for the right job, and you will never go wrong!
This was the first time I have seen Vent Tape used, and...
Oh, wait a minute.
Now that I read it closely it isn't Vent Tape at all.
It's Venture Tape.
Gee, here I was thinking they were actually using Vent Tape.
Well, it was a good try.
Maybe next time I can put out something that instructs on the proper way to do something.
*** Obviously I am kidding. THIS IS NOT BEST PRACTICE! IT IS STUPID PRACTICE! DUCT WORK SHOULD NEVER BE TAPED TOGETHER!! EVEN WITH THE INFAMOUS DUCT TAPE!! And unfortunately it is typical of what I see on so many pre-drywall inspections. If you ever see something like this on a pre-drywall inspection, just look at the supervisor, point at the VENT TAPE, laugh and walk away.
YOU WON'T HAVE TO SAY A WORD...
Excuse me. I need to go put some ice on my headache.
