Find the Best Pipe Insulation to Prevent Freezing
Keep your pipes from freezing with the help of Mr. Rooter® Plumbing of Central Oregon's pipe wrap insulation. Whether it's for indoor or outdoor plumbing, we have the right solution for you. Choose from the following options:
- Rigid foam pipe insulation: Provides thermal regulation even in thin layers and is resistant to moisture and corrosion.
- Flexible elastomeric foams or rubber pipe insulation: Offers excellent thermal insulation, resists mold, and provides extra acoustic protection. It has a longer lifespan due to its flexibility but has a higher initial cost.
- Polyethylene: The most widely used insulation for residential pipes. It is lightweight, durable, and provides both freeze protection and condensation control.
Remember, pipe insulation only protects against freezing. To completely prevent freezing, consider leaving the water on at a drip or heating the area with exposed pipes.
Maximize Efficiency with Heating Pipe Insulation
Prevent heat loss by insulating your hot pipes. We offer several options for maximizing efficiency:
- Glass wool or fiberglass pipe insulation: Lightweight materials that protect against high temperatures and resist mold. However, they can irritate the skin, eyes, and respiratory system.
- Mineral wool insulation: Resists extremely high temperatures and works well on hot pipes. Like glass wool and fiberglass, it can also irritate the system.
- Flexible elastomeric foams or rubber pipe insulation: While primarily used for freezing protection, these foams also prevent some heat loss. Note that they are not rated for as much heat as fiberglass.
- Polyethylene: A common cold insulator that also protects hot pipes from heat loss. This lightweight and water-resistant material is ideal for insulation in your home plumbing.
