Chooseday’s Choice! ~ Is your hot water cylinder wearing a jacket?

Where does YOUR energy go?

A simple low cost way to save energy on domestic hot water is to make sure your hot water cylinder is properly lagged. A lagging jacket fitted on your hot water cylinder will keep water hotter for longer and pay for itself in 2-3 months. If replacing the hot water cylinder, a cylinder with factory applied insulation should be considered. Such insulation is more effective at retaining heat than a lagging jacket, is less easily damaged and cannot be pulled out of place.

Don’t forget the pipes. By slipping pipe insulation around your exposed hot water pipes you’ll keep your hot water hotter for longer. Fitting insulation to pipes is easy if the pipes are accessible. Pipe insulation are foam tubes that cover the exposed pipes between your hot water cylinder and boiler, reducing the amount of heat lost and therefore keeping your water hotter for longer. It’s usually as simple as choosing the right size from your local DIY store and then slipping it around the pipes.
