Pipe Insulation

gehring Member Posts: 65
I have a one-pipe steam system with dry returns. The previous owner abated the asbestos insulation from the basement pipes but did not re-insulate. I want to paint and insulate the pipes now. My questions are 1.) Is it necessary
to also insulate the dry returns or are they better left bare to help the condensate cool? 2.) Is it necessary (or helpful) to also insulate all my new near boiler piping (risers, offsets and header) or not?
