In mechanical systems, insulation is required on pipes, ducts, tanks, and equipment. The insulation controls temperature variation to help limit heat gain or loss on surfaces operating above or below the ambient temperature. Two types of mechanical systems require insulation: piping and HVAC. Piping systems that carry water with an operating temperature of 105°F or more or 60°F or less need to be thermally insulated, according to both ANSI/ASHRAE/IES 90.1-2010, Energy Standard ...
