Can/Should Air Handler in unconditioned space be insulated?
Hi just wondering, we have R8 insulated ducts in a vented attic, Zone 3, East Coast. The air handler is up there too but does not appear to be insulated. Would there be any benefit to insulating the AHU, and if-so, how?
Also, related, is there any benefit to adding insulation to R8 insulated ducts (they look like puffy fiberglass-wrapped flex-ducts), and if-so how? They are hung too high to bury in the loosefill.
