Insulating hot water pipes?
Hi folks –
At some point we’ll get a roof and then be able to close up the walls. While we wait – I have long thought about wrapping our hot water pipes with insulation. At the local big box – I have a couple option: 1. Rubber, Foam, and a fiberglass product.
– What are the thoughts on insulating hot water pipes? Any risk of condensation that would be problematic?
– We have installed a hot water recirculation loop – insulate that?
– Probably too big to insulate – but we also installed a drainwater heat recovery pipe…
We are in northern Virginia.
