duct tape is not acceptable, nor intended to wrap metal ducts.
every house I've had has had it used ages ago, and when I got around to inspecting it, it had turned crepe-y and all blown out.

The fun ones where where you could tell it had been layered by patching and repatching through the years.

"crepe-y and all blown out"

Metal tape or duct mastic(putty made for the job). Duct tape dries up, doesn't stick to metal that well, doesn't flex as age and so is ripped by the flexing of the pipes. And isn't fire resistant or fire-blocking.

aluminum hvac tape is the only way to go. Once that goes on, you'll never get it off, and you know... its metal.

I've seen stuff that was disintegrated into dust too. There's different types of what we generically call "duct tape". Most of it would work OK to seal up his little beer vent.

Planning to sell my old house in Calgary this year, here is my recent improvements. I found local home buyer service here https://bridgedalehomebuyers.ca/, it's the easiest way to sell the house in any condition fast and without any issues. One of my friends sold with their help old house in downtown in a few weeks at good price.
