Condensation on copper pipes

I have condensation on the cold water pipes coming into the house. The consensation continues for the first 10 or 20 feet, along each of the first few side lines. I have a whole house humidifier unit. However, the room in which the pipe enters the house is not heated. Could this still be the problem? The weather here has been unseasonably warm and wet for this time of year. Could that effect this? Or, is this a sign of something worse?

santorini, Welcome to the DIY Forums.
The difference in the outside temp and inside temp plus humidity will cause this. You can purchase foam insulation that will solve this problem. I prefer Armaflex brand but there are others that are sold at home centers. Seal the joints with tape or glue. Good luck.
