Thermal Expansion and Contraction of Pipes
How to Prevent Damage From Pipe Expansion/Contraction
Pipes expand and contract due to temperature changes. This could have serious consequences for the complete installation and cause damage to the entire building.
Pipe expansion can be a nuisance in the form of sound (material stresses, the ticking of the old central heating pipes, etc…) and even damage to the building. This can often lead to pipes breaking which leads to water damage. Therefore, it is wise to take this into account before and during installation.
