We all strive for energy efficient homes; reducing our carbon footprints as well as cutting energy bills. Sufficient and good quality insulation is just one of the ways we can improve the green rating of our properties. Large amounts of heat are lost throughout the lengths of pipes that make up heating and hot water plumbing systems, so it’s always necessary to install some form of pipe insulation.
Water pipe insulation can cut heat loss by up to 70% so make sure you investigate the numerous pipe insulation types and find out what would best do the job in your home. As well as the foam textured ultra efficient tubes, you can also opt for pipe insulation wrap which is easily wrapped around warm pipes to retain heat and around cold pipes to reduce condensation.
Increasing the energy efficiency of your home is one of many DIY projects that will really make a difference and at Homebase we love the possibility of do-it-yourself projects all over the home and garden.
