    Default pex condensation concern

    I'm running pex water lines within an indoor baseboard chase. I'll be insulating the hot lines with foam tubing to retain heat, but was wondering if I should also put foam tubing on the cold lines to prevent any condensation.

    The chase, being open where the lines enter/exit, will allow room air to circulate somewhat through the chase, so I was wondering if any moisture in the air will condense on the cold lines and cause dampness within the chase.

    WHenever there is air circulation, it's possible to get condensation on cold surfaces.
