Insulate Hot and Cold Water Pipes

Description:
Insulating water pipes reduces heat loss or gain in the pipes while the water is standing.

Application:
Insulate hot water pipes in all runs through unconditioned spaces: basements, crawl spaces, attics, etc. At a minimum, insulate both hot and cold pipes at least 6 feet from the hot water heater to prevent convective circulation from the heater through the pipes.
