My room is the smallest in the house, and it gets hot in the winter because
the heat is turned up to properly heat the bigger rooms in the house.
I tried opening the window, but it's still hot.
The heat comes from a pipe that sticking out of the floor.
Is there anything that I can cover the pipe with to keep the room cooler?
Insulating foam for pipes is available in the plumbing center at any
of the home center stores. It comes in various sizes, slips over the
pipe. Look for the type that has adhesive on the slit. You pull off
the tape, slip it over the pipe and squeeze together.
It does seem a bit strange that so much heat could come from one pipe
just passing through. Normally, some tyope of radiator is required
to obtain a lot of heat from the water passing through.
