i'm asking this because i remember a thread awhile ago about asbestos.
my situation is that i live in a 60s home with an oil furnace close to the same vintage, and the duct work is taped with asbestos tape. i plan to remove the oil furnace and duct work and just rely on our wood stove. the wood heat should travel better upstairs through the open vents. i'm thinking, i can wrap the asbestos tape with normal duct tape, then remove the ducts by cutting it in pieces, leaving the taped joints in tact.
does this sound stupid? thanks
