I’m repainting my heating register vents and noticed something on the ductwork I didn’t see before. Pics attached. Judging from a google search, it looks like the section of ductwork that connects to the baseboard is wrapped in asbestos.
I can’t find it on any other parts of my ductwork in the basement. Just on the pieces that connect to the baseboard register vents.
Should I be concerned? No plans to do any remodeling anytime soon. Is it worrisome that it’s so accessible to get at? And why would it only be used on this parts of the ducting?
