Pipe insulation - Is It Necessary?

Most of us insulate the walls, attics or roofs of our house to make it a more comfortable living environment. However, something people often neglect to consider is the benefits of insulating their home piping systems. Pipe Insulation can drastically improve the performance of your piping system. Let's discuss a few of the main benefits of pipe insulation with you right now!

Noise Control

As some of us have had to learn the hard way noise can pass through the pipework of your house. Especially late at night as the home grows silent this can become very discomforting. To solve these noise-related issues, pipe insulation is a must. The insulation works as an acoustic decoupler. It prevents noise transmission while your piping system passes through the walls, floor or other stable structures of the building. It also reduces the noise created by materials that move through the systems themselves.

Ensure Safety with Insulation

The piping systems in most of the industrial units perform their function under a very high or low-temperature level. For obvious reasons these can be dangerous to touch. For the safety of all workers, you can insulate the pipes and prevent any unnecessary injuries. Workers who make contact with the pipes will have no risk of getting burned. Both the valve and the piping system will be safe for all workers.

Minimize the Loss / Gain of Heat

Heat loss and heat gain are the two most notable effects that you can control with pipe insulation. If you do not insulate your pipes, when hot water passes through your plumbing system you are most likely experiencing some form of heat loss. Similarly, cold water will start gaining heat. To solve all these issues, you can insulate the pipes.
As the insulation reduces the heat gain or loss cycle, it prevents the waste of energy. This will result in a lower energy bill every month.

Prevent Condensation Build Up

The constant build up of condensation over time may cause the slow corrosion of not only the pipes but also the adjacent accessories. You will could eventually experience a failure of the overall system. The insulation layer blocks hot air from touching your cold pipes which in turn prevents condensation from forming. Thus, to reduce the condensation level, install high-quality insulation.

Frost Protection

Freezing temperature is one of the risks to your poorly insulated piping system. With the reduced temperature level, the accumulated water inside the pipes may become frozen. It can result in small cracks or pipe burst issues. Insulation is highly essential in frost protection to the exposed pipes.

Replace your Old Insulation with New Insulation

In some old houses, the pipe insulation products have asbestos. This asbestos-filled insulation layer can cause health-related risks. However, it may not be easy for you to identify this type of insulation. Asbestos insulation tends to have a corrugated design (shaped into a series of parallel ridges and grooves). If you believe you have this type of insulation in your home it is certainly advised that you update your pipe insulation immediately.

Choosing the Right Pipe Insulation

Choosing the right pipe insulation product is highly essential to get the best results. You have to focus on various factors to invest in the best product.

Pipe Bore - The term bore indicates the outer diameter of your pipe. You may measure it in millimeters or inches.
The thickness of the insulation products - You can find pipe insulation in various thickness levels. It goes without saying that the thicker the insulation layer the more it helps your pipes to reduce the heat loss percentage. you will also find better and stronger frost protection from the thicker insulation types. For outdoor piping systems, the minimum thickness level of insulation products is 19mm.

Material Types
There are a large range of different pipe insulation materials to choose from. Here’s a quick breakdown of a few of the most popular choices:

Foam and foil insulation - Perhaps the most popular choice. The self-adhesive, thin foam, backed up with aluminum foil, is easily installable.

Fiberglass kits - These are a low-priced choice. The fiberglass insulation roll offers the best protection to the pipes. In the cold regions, this insulation works best.

Rubber insulation - The self-seal adhesive system is present in some rubber insulation products. They are highly energy efficient and durable materials. They can expand or contract with the fluctuation in temperatures.

Installing the Insulation - Things to keep in mind

Tape or adhesive is used to secure the pipe insulation in place. Self-seal products are also an alternative option. For some materials, you have to take into account the contraction and expansion of the pipping. When it is rubber insulation, your insulation length should be longer than your pipe length. Moreover, you must regularly check whether pests have interfered with your insulation.

To conclude, Pipe Insulation is vital in preventing several detrimental effects on your pipes. Heat loss control, noise control and frost protection are the significant benefits from installing pipe insulation. Don’t cut corners where you’ll regret it!
