Old gray-plastic-lined air ducting deteriorates when contacted by sunlight. This is a manufacturer's defect, and this material is found in many homes in the U.S.; most often some or most of the vapor barrier is damaged. This creates efficiency loss of the HVAC system. Small damaged sections can often be repaired with appropriate tapes (not duct tape); though large damaged areas require replacement of the entire ducting.
