Keep Your Home Safe with Pipe Insulation

Pipe insulation is an easy and affordable way to keep your Portland home safe while conserving energy and saving money. Sounds good, right?  Well, it’s true. And now, before it gets too cold, is the perfect time of year to consider getting this job done right.  Here are a few reasons why…

Top 3 Ways Pipe Insulation Improves Your Home

1. Hot Water Delivery

Regardless of the type of hot water heater you have, pipe insulation will work to quicken the time it takes for water to get warm.  Proper insulation ensures the water stays warm along its journey to your shower or sink faucet.

2. Help Preserve Your Water Heater

Insulated pipes essentially do the same job as a hot water heater, albeit on a much smaller scale.  Still, water heaters and insulated pipes work hand-in-hand.  With properly insulated pipes, it’s possible to turn down your water heater temperature.  This provides two homeowner benefits: 1. It’s less taxing on your water heater and helps to increase its longevity. 2. Lower water temperatures will reduce overall utility costs.

3. Conserve Energy; Save Money

The main function of insulated pipes is to conserve energy by naturally heating and keeping water warm.  As mentioned above, a lower water heater temperature means energy saved and a reduction in monthly heating bills.
