Tips for insulating and sealing around mini-split flare connections?
Any tips for how best to seal and insulate around the flare connections off the indoor unit? For wall-mounted units both lines are usually run by the manufacturer though a shared insulation sleeve that is split near the end to make the flare connections. From there the linesets are individually insulated. I’ve always had trouble sealing and insulating this transition from shared insulation to individual insulation. I usually just wrap a ton of insulating tape around the whole area, but this always winds up looking sloppy and it still sometimes fails with air sneaking in and condensing.
Anyone out there have a better way?
