PEX 101: What is the best way to insulate PEX pipe?

Insulating your PEX is a very vital step in making your PEX last for a long time. And there is no better way to insulate your PEX than using radiant barrier insulation. Other types of insulation would promise you many things but only radiant barrier insulation will deliver at a very affordable price.


One practical way of getting a PEX and insulation is to not buy them separately. You can buy them both together–we can do all the work for you. You can directly buy the best underground insulated PEX pipe from us for as low as $6.85!

WHY RADIANT BARRIER INSULATION?

The Wrap style–radiant barrier insulation uses polyethylene which is a durable closed-cell material with strong impact damping and chemical resistance characteristics. Its physical properties make it well suited to protecting PEX from cold weather while keeping the heat loss to less than a degree. The following are the other reason why should all the more purchase our underground insulated PEX!

LESS THAN 1 DEGREE HEAT LOSS

An independent team did a temperature loss test. The team found out that under a load of 63 500  BTU and 5 GPM, the PEX using a wrap style-radiant insulation only lost 0.87 degree F per 100 ft. The tests were done at a steady state at an average of 3 readings for each test.

FLEXIBLE

It is not a secret that having to work with a flexible PEX in the attic is better than those that are not. Unlike foam-filled insulation, the radiant barrier insulation will give you more flexibility. At over 6 ft. you can already do a 180 degree to your PEX.

COST-EFFECTIVE

The radiant barrier insulation has long been used in the heating industry and it obviously is cheaper than other insulations.
