Pipe insulation wraps around pipes to reduce heat loss or gain and prevent condensation. Insulation helps maintain the temperature of the fluid within the pipes by reducing heat transfer from the pipe and the surrounding environment.
In colder months, pipe insulation is essential to stop pipes from freezing and bursting. Properly insulated pipes also improve energy efficiency as they reduce the need for the system to work to maintain a stable temperature.
Some types of pipe insulation can help reduce sound that comes from pipes. Pipe insulation can be manufactured from a variety of materials including fibreglass, plastic, foam, mineral wool and closed-cell foam.
Good installation is key to ensure your pipes are properly protected. Insulation needs to be tightly sealed around the pipe to give continuous coverage. Joins need special attention to ensure the insulation functions well.
