How much insulation will stop my pipes freezing this winter?
Pipe freezing – it’s what every homeowner dreads. You can see puddles, lakes and even streams freezing outside but just how cold does it have to be before the water in your pipes freezes
Every year this is one of the questions that our technical office here at Kaimann answers on a daily basis. The answer can vary – smaller pipes freeze incredibly quickly while larger pipes take much longer to freeze. Other factors can influence the freezing time too – like just how cold it is and how much insulation has been installed.
Kaimann has built a powerful calculation suite that can be used to answer any question you might have about how long it will take a pipe to freeze and how much insulation should be installed to prevent it from freezing.
This year, to make things even easier we’ve created a simplified calculator that focuses specifically on calculating the thicknesses of insulation to prevent pipe freezing. Whether you want to use Kaifoam or opt for Kaiflex the new Kaimann pipe freezing calculator is an invaluable tool that’s online today.
