You need to keep all the hot water in your home insulated so it will stay hot. This is so you will spend less time running water in your home just to get it to feel hot. An insulation procedure is made to do wonders to your setup.
How Do You Do It?
Here’s a process you can use for fixing up your heater:
- Gather an appropriate insulation foam material. This is traditionally made with a flexible foam material.
- Attach insulation to the top part of the heater. You’ll have to tape it on for the best fit.
- Wrap your insulation around your tank as evenly as possible.
- Cut any spots needed in order to keep the control panel and other features around your unit open. This is so you can adjust the heater as needed depending on what might be required of it later on.
You can do this to easily get your heater to produce hot water without losing quality. Just make sure you do not turn the heater to a temperature of over 130 degrees or else the foam could heat up and wear out. This might make the insulation process useless if it is not covered properly.
