Insulation For Pipes


A lot of money is wasted every year through our pipes. Water is heated, only to have some of that energy lost as the hot water flows to its destination. Even worse, every cold snap there's a chance that the pipes will burst because of the temperatures. A simple solution to this problem is Foam Pipe Insulation. It can keep the water temperature where you want it, saving money, and even more importantly protecting our pipes so we don't have to worry about a costly plumbing bill every time the temperature drops. A little bit of time, effort and money today can make a huge difference tomorrow.

When considering Foam Pipe Insulation, the first thing that you'll need to decide is what you want. Check your pipes to see what is already there. Obviously you need to be careful, if you discover that your home has asbestos pipe insulation call someone to immediately remove it. Don't try to remove it yourself, asbestos can be deadly. If there are other types of insulation already on your pipes you might want to remove it before adding the new insulation. Take your time, there's no need to rush.

Foam Pipe Insulation

You're going to need to figure out what types of pipes you have before adding Foam Pipe Insulation. Many homes have copper pipes, others have fiberglass. Once you know what type you have and have cleaned the outside of the pipes, you're ready to begin.

There are many things to consider with Foam Pipe Insulation. What do you want to insulate? Are you looking to just insulate the hot water pipes, or all of them? Insulating all the pipes is a good idea if you live in a cold climate. Some things may be tricky, and for them you may want to bring in a professional. Hot pipe insulation, outdoor pipe insulation, and underground pipe insulation all hold special challenges. Another thing to think about is the insulation itself. You can use foam, but you might also want to try mineral wool pipe insulation, closed cell pipe insulation or thermal pipe insulation. Thermwell is a name that many people trust. Whatever you decide to do, you'll be enjoying hot water and lower energy costs for years to come.

Don't be put off from insulating your pipes yourself, I managed to do it and I am a nightmare with anything to do with DIY normally. Just take your time and you will be able to do a great job - or just get someone in to do it for you!

Insulating your water pipes is a must if you live somewhere that has cold winters. Last year one of my pipes burst because it wasn't insulated. I took the time to use foam pipe insulation and I can forget about worrying about burst pipes.
