What is the purpose of insulation on the electric wire?
When someone says 'wire' and 'insulation' they typically refer to 'electrical insulation' (as opposed to, say, thermal insulation). Electrical insulation prevents electricity from leaving the wire from things that the wire touches (like your hand!). The most common form of insulation for wires is plastic, like all your cords use.

How does the use of insulation help to conserve energy?
Asked in Home Electricity
What material would be safest to use as an insulator to use to cover electrical wires?
When selecting a material for an insulation factor it has to be balanced between flexibility and its insulation properties. Glass would be an excellent insulator but in the electrical field hard to pull through conduit and bending without damaging the insulation. Cross-linked polyethylene fits both the conditions for a wire insulation. The insulation has a high insulation factor plus the ability to bend without damaging the insulation and can operate in a 90 degree C temperature range.
