I was cleaning the airhandler after repairing the drip lines. Basically, I need a small strip of insulation for the inside of the access panel cover. About 2 inches by 20 inches. Getting some condensation along the strip without insulation. This also is a few feet above the furnace burner....should I get a piece of rigid closed cell product, or perhaps a spray foam? Would like to be able to buy a small quantity. Thanks in advance!!!

If anyone knew exactly what the Hell you were talking about you would probably have had an answer by now.

What did "cleaning the air handler" have to do with the "drip lines"? You do know that "drip lines" are for irrigation?

Why does the "inside" of the "air handler" panel need insulation? The air handler shouldn't require any insulation to speak of. However, the plenum that houses the evaporator coil does require insulation- and it's on the outside. So, with that said would putting a foam type insulation "inside" an air handler (which also houses the furnace) be a good idea?

I typed "HVAC drip line" in Google and got 240,000 "hits" in .51 seconds. But, that's nothing, I typed in "arsehole losers in Georgia" and got 17,000,000 hits in .62 seconds. The coil housing is completely insulated on the inside....to reduce noise and prevent condensation.

Find an outfit in your area that specifically does sheet metal fabrication, mosey over and ask them for a scrap of duct liner. They probably throw away 100 times the amount you need each day. Get some spray on rubber cement, hit both sides, and stick it in place.
