    Fiberglass insulation is good to at least 850º and Kevlar to at least 500º - so you're safe in that regard. It was the possible blocking of air flow that was concerning me.

    Thanks for the pics. That is totally fine I would say. The compressor is gas-cooled - not air cooled.

    Good job!

    Good to know! Thanks! Well comparing what it looks like with and without it it does add a substantial amount of mass within the unit. Think its enough to cause problems? Fire specifically? The only non fireproof portion is the velcro wrapped around it out side.

    If the compressor ever got to 300º - it would be toast. You materials are good for about twice that - so a fire isn't going to happen.

    Looks pretty good for just stuff you had laying around. Trane used to put sound blankets on a lot of their compressors, not sure what all models come with then any more. As long as theirs enough room around the inlet of the fan shroud I don't see any problems. Good job.

    It will take as long as it takes, which will be not as long if you let me do my job.
