Pipe insulation

Insulating your hot water pipes reduces heat loss and can raise water temperature 2°F–4°F hotter than uninsulated pipes can deliver, allowing you to lower your water temperature setting in your water heater or boiler. You also won't have to wait as long for hot water when you turn on a faucet, showerhead, or your heating system, which helps conserve water.
Plus, National Grid offers rebates to help make energy-saving pipe insulation more affordable for you:
  • Pipe insulation for steam or hot water boilers, limit 100 linear feet, $0.75 rebate per linear foot of fiberglass insulation
  • Pipe insulation for steam or hot water boilers, limit 100 linear feet, $0.50 rebate per linear foot of foam insulation
