Pipe & Duct Insulation

An Afternoon Basement Project

This homeowner from Long Island had an expensive problem. The water heater manifold in his basement was costing him hundreds of dollars a year in wasted energy costs. In just the few feet of piping running from the basement water heater to the pipes in the rest of his home, the heat loss was dramatic. Dramatic enough to keep his boiler room some 20 degrees hotter than of the rest of house.
But a few packages of Frost King Pipe Insulation, and a few hours on a sunday solved his problem. Using just the Frost King CF42X and the Frost King P10X, he was able to keep the energy from leaking from his pipes into the rest of his house.
He told us...
That heat is not radiant in my room anymore, it is staying in the water where it is supposed to be, and my wife remarked that the water is hotter now out of the faucet.
The Department of energy recommends that, homeowners install pipe insulation on all exposed pipes in the house, especially in those critical three feet of piping just after the pipes leave the hot water heater.
For each 10ºF reduction in water temperature, you can save between 3%–5% in energy costs.
With Frost King it's easy to save money and energy. The entire line of pipe insulation can save hundreds, if not thousands of dollars on your home energy bill. You have a Frost King Energy Success story? Let us know, we love to see Frost King in action.
