pipework
Solutions
Question 1
For new systems, if secondary circulation is used, all pipes kept hot by
that circulation must be insulated.
Question 2
Where the pipe diameter size is 22mm OD the permissible heat loss is
9.12 W/m.
Question 3
All pipes should be insulated to 1 metre from their point of connection
to the hot water cylinder in new systems.

Solutions
Question 4
When installing a replacement oil boiler, you should insulate any pipe
work exposed as a result of your work.
Question 5
Where insulation is labelled as complying with the Domestic Heating
Compliance Guide it must not exceed the maximum permissible heat loss
(W/m) level for pipework with outside diameter of: 



10mm = 7.23 W/m
15mm = 7.89 W/m
22mm = 9.12 W/m
28mm = 10.07 W/m
