Does anyone have any feelings on the hot water heater insulation wraps that you can buy to wrap around your hot water heater? Are they any good or even worth the effort? Do they really work? Does it do any good?
Mike Finley said:When I had a second hot water heater added to my house I discussed this with the plumber, his answer was to touch the side of the tank, was it hot? He said if I couldn't feel the heat from the hot water inside then the tank was insulated properly and therefore the hot water inside couldn't feel the cold air outside either.
Sounded logical to me.
I would like to have everyone of my hot water copper lines wrapped though.
