How to Insulate Outdoor Water Pipes

Are you worried about the condition of your outdoor pipes this winter? At Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Pittsburgh, we offer premium commercial and residential services including winterizing and pipe repair in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and surrounding communities. If you are concerned about dealing with burst pipes or other winter related plumbing complications, then read below for some helpful information.

Benefits of Insulating Outdoor Water Pipes

During the winter, as temperatures rise and fall during the day and night, the water inside your pipes can freeze and thaw. This recurring process creates a buildup of air pressure which can damage weakened pipes. The result is often a large leak or indoor flood. When you insulate pipes, you can better regulate the temperature of the water and prevent it from turning to ice. Therefore, it is highly recommended that property owners in cold climates properly insulate vulnerable pipes, particularly those that are exposed to the outdoors.

Deciding Which Pipes Need to Be Insulated

Insulation is essential for pipes and faucets that are located outside of the home. However, it is important to consider insulating other pipes that may be at risk inside your property as well. Examples include pipes that are located in the following areas:

  • Basements
  • Garages
  • Exterior Walls
  • Crawl Spaces and Floor Cavities
  • Attics

Best Options for Pipe Insulation

There are a variety of materials available that can be used for insulating pipes. The most popular options include foam pipe sleeves, pipe-wrap insulation and outdoor faucet covers. Regardless of which type of insulation you use, be sure to stay aware of your plumbing systems condition through the harsh winter months and call for assistance at the first sign of trouble.
