    Default asbestos insulation

    I have a small bit of asbestos insulation (about 6-8 linear feet) on hot water pipes coming from the furnace. it is only in a small basement room housing the furnace and hot water heater.

    I was told that encapsulation using plastic sheeting duct taped around the asbestos is acceptable. Is this true?

    Also, do you think this is better than removing it considering the small amount?

    Howdy the abatement is directed by the local county building / health dept or state law these vary.
