    My air handler is installed in an unconditioned space - unfinished attic. I've seen articles that say the air temp in this space is usually greater than the air temp outside.

    Should I be looking for an insulation jacket similar to those available for a water heater to install on my unit.

    Thoughts / site links would be appreciated.

    Welcome to are little forum.I see that your the wordy type huh:]

    Aeripam.precisionh/c is right in his answer to your question.Also if you look in the manual for most hotwater heaters.You will see they do not want one on their equipment either.

    Nope....The cabinet for the air handler is already insulated on the inside... Adding more probably will not do much for you....

    from one gasman to another. you are right, awh manufactor do not want blankets on water heaters. in fact it voids the warrenty. as far as the unit in attic the answer is no.
