Insulating Your Heating Cable

by Matt Roberts

Hello and welcome to the June 2018 Heat-Line Vlog.

All Heat-Line brand heating cable systems employ self-regulating heating cable technology which has many advantages beyond your common hardware store heat tape. Possibly the most important, is the ability to insulate self-regulating heating cables to further increase operating efficiency.

The most common forms of insulation include rigid Styrofoam board, fiberglass, cellulose, closed cell foam and urethane foam (commonly known as spray foam). Each of these types of insulation have certain benefits. For further information on Heat-Line insulation options go to https://heatline.com/insulation

When discussing and designing your heating cable system with Heat-Line, be sure to ask about insulation options. This step is very important and should never be ignored. Our system specialist and technicians are always happy to help and provide guidance when possible.

Listen to June’s video blog and learn directly from a Heat-Line specialist on what to consider and investigate when insulating your heating cable and water pipe.
