Should I Insulate My Homes Hot Water Pipes?

The first patent for the water heater was awarded a little over 150 years ago and residential water heaters were considered a luxury not many generations ago. Now, we take readily available hot water for granted. We quickly realize how good we had it when the showerhead sends shivers down the spine, however. One way to make sure you continue to enjoy the luxury of hot water in your house is by insulating hot water pipes. In this short article brought to you by Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Pittsburgh, we will go over the many benefits of hot water pipe insulation. If you are not getting hot water, then call Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Pittsburgh to request an emergency dispatch today. Our plumbers are on standby to respond to your call now.

The Many Benefits of Hot Water Pipe Insulation

No one likes the shock of cold water from the showerhead or waiting for the water to heat up before jumping in. Quicker access to hot water is the most obvious benefit of insulating hot water pipes, but there are more advantages than one.

Insulating hot water pipes in your home can increase the water temperature by up to four degrees, reducing energy waste. Quicker access to hot water also saves gallons of water from flowing down the drains as you wait for the water to heat up. These energy and water savings are great for your wallet and the environment as well!

Speaking of saving money: consider the effect on your water heater. Insulating water pipes puts less strain on your water heater, potentially increasing the life expectancy and efficiency of the unit. Insulating those hot water pipes now might mean having to deal with fewer repairs later.

Leave the Work to the Experienced Plumbers

Insulating the water pipes in your residential property can be time-consuming and even messy. Granted, there are many tutorials on how to properly insulate pipes. If you prefer to leave this work to the experienced plumbers, then consider hiring a dedicated plumber from Mr. Rooter Plumbing.
