I just had a plumber friend replace the main water line with copper and relocate it so that it runs along the interior support beam (instead of along the exterior wall). It definitely needs to be insulated because as its gets warmer this summer, I've noticed quite a bit of condensation. The pipe is 1" copper and is attached directly to the wooden support beam the runs through the center of the house - and therefore, I don't be able to get foam insulation between the beam and the pipe. I can get foam insulation around most of it - but I"m worried that condensation will eventually damage and weaken the wood of the beam.

What's the best way to handle this situation?

Thanks in advance.

Take the hangers off one at a time, insulate all the way around, then use a new hanger big enough to go around the insulation?
