Insulation does not stop pipes from freezing. It slows the process down to the point where, hopefully, the user will run some water before it reaches the freezing point in the pipes.

: the pipes in the slab keep leaking! I want to go overhead in attic. I have built a raceway from boiler room to other end of house, insulated the box and insulating the pipes (3/4 copper) with knauf 1000 pipe insulation ( 1 inch thick), will this be enough to keep pipes from freezing? the temp. in the area some times drops to singe digits.
