    duct rating

    Hi, can someone please tell me what the
    "R" rating is on the old galvanized duct? Also, this duct is insulated with insulation.

    Is R8 really better than the normal R 4.2?

    Metal duct doesn't have a R rating.
    Its the liner/insulation that has the R value. And it depends how thick and it is.

    R8 transfers heat only have as fast as R4.
    So yes, it is better.
