Hot water generated by your boiler will, in most circumstances, serve your heating and hot water systems. In both cases, the hot water must either be transported to your hot water tank, or taken round your heating network to supply the radiators.

Insulating the pipework will help to minimise the hot loss in delivering the hot water from the boiler to the outlet (radiator or hot water tank). It is not always easy to access the pipework, for example a lot of heating pipework will be within the floor, but every little helps, so it is still worth insulating any exposed pipework you have access to.
