Piping insulation fact sheet published

A six-page brochure, “Insulation Facts #85,” has been published by North American Insulation Manufacturers Association (NAIMA) to detail insulation requirements for plastic piping. Currently, such materials are needed for service hot-water and HVAC piping, but the specific requirements are not separated for plastic and metallic piping products. The new fact sheet discusses heat loss and thermal conductivity compared between plastic and metal piping systems. International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) minimum insulation thickness requirements for commercial HVAC installations and domestic hot water and HVAC piping are also explored.
