Pipe insulation is fitted to protect the pipe from the environments atmosphere and also for energy efficient reasons to assist with maintaining the heat in the hot water pipes.

Legionella bacteria grows rapidly in water temperatures of 25*- 45* therefore, it’s important that the cold water is kept cold and the hot water is kept hot.

By insulating the pipes you are not only being energy efficient – you are helping the pipes maintain their temperatures and help prevent being adjusted by the atmosphere or by other potential factors.
