Insulating baseboard lines

I have a 50 year old house with hot water baseboard heating. The lines run through the basement and up through the house. My question is can I insulate the pipes that run in the basement so I don't waste heating unsed space?

Thanks,

John from Jersey

Re: Insulating baseboard lines

Yes you can and it will be beneficial. You don't want to just insulate the straight runs you want to cut the insulation so it fits tightly around elbows and T's.
