Insulating water supply pipes in exposed areas of your home is a good idea for several reasons. In cold-winter climates, water supply pipes that are exposed to exterior walls or unheated spaces may freeze, burst, and flood your home. Insulating water pipes is a key element to any efforts to winterize the plumbing in the home.
Insulating water pipes can also save money, on energy costs, by preventing hot water pipes from losing their heat to the surrounding air. Insulating the hot water pipes leading out of your geyser, for example, can reduce heat loss and lower the costs of heating the water.
