Non-Energy Benefits of Boiler Pipe Insulation
Return to Non-Energy Benefits index
Insulating boiler pipes reduces noise and the likelihood of freeze-related breakage.
Boiler pipe insulation can help tone down the sound of water circulating through boiler pipes in the home.
Insulating boiler pipes also reduces the potential for freeze damage. While usually full of warm water, during periods in which the system is not operating (for example, when a home is unoccupied), water-filled pipes can freeze and break causing substantial damage to the home and contents.
