Product Overview

Keep the water in your tank hotter for a longer period of time with the Reach Barrier 3016 Single Reflective Air Water Heater Insulation Kit. It fits most sizes of water heater tanks and saves money. Water heating can account for 14% to 25% of the energy consumed in a home, but you can cut heat losses by 25% to 45%. Any water heater tank that's warm to the touch can benefit from an insulation kit. The kit includes a 24 in. by 192 in. roll of Reach Barrier Single Reflective Air Water Heater Protector, Super Temperature Resistant Tape and an easy-to-follow instruction guide. Reach Barrier reflective insulation products are one of the most versatile and energy efficient insulation products available. Radiant (reflective) barriers are installed in attics, walls, roof decking and flooring. Most newly constructed homes contain radiant barrier insulation because of the proven effectiveness to decrease energy usage and cost by reducing summer heat gain and winter heat loss. Installing a radiant barrier may be the lowest-cost improvement that can produce the greatest overall reduction in energy usage and expense. Single reflective air meets ASTM standards and complies with building code.

Dear Scuba00: Great question! When I saw this 'reflective insulation' kit, I wondered how they could claim any R value. Reflective products require you to install / create a sealed air pocket on one side. This air gap provides almost all of the claimed R value; the reflective plastic provides almost no R value.
So... you could not simply wrap a water heater with a reflective product and achieve good Read More

Home Depot sells two insulation products for water heaters that provide reliable R11 insulation: MD Building Products Model # 04689 Internet # 205129967 and Model # SP57/11C Home Depot Internet # 100139225 Store SKU # 417920. A tip: use foil HVAC tape to attach these products and seal the seams -- not silver fabric "duct" tape. See: Nashua Tape Model # 1207792 Home Depot Internet # 100030120 Store SKU # 915245
I hope this is helpful.

I don't see you have an insulation kit for a 50 gal electric water tank. If you had one I would buy the kit.

Answer: 
My heater is a 50 gallon electric heater and the 40 gallon kit worked fine. Since heaters come in all sizes, measure you tank. The 40 gallon kit may fit. I covered the top and even had a piece left over.

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Comes up short We have a new construction home and wanted to put a new blanket on the water heater. Following the installation instructions when I got down to the last part of of the water heater I ran out of material. This is a standard 50 gallon heater and the box said it would do standard water heaters? I E-mailed the company to get there explanation and never received a response. For that reason I would not recommend it and gave it a poor "value". Good Luck. July 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install Fast delivery, very easy to install. I was worried about installation as my water heater is in a corner with plumbing behind it. The reflective material was easy to move in the area I could not reach. The reflective tape really sticks to the reflective material. With my heater in the garage, I was worried temperature changes and moisture would loosen the tape. It did not. Instructions were easy to read. I had used the insulation wraps in the past and this was much better. November 3, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Purchase Product purchase does the job. It is very easy install November 3, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by water heater insulator other co sell the insulators also. Its a good buy but not the best June 9, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Decent product that probably does it's job. The product is short and requires about 3 pieces to wrap a 50 gal. water tank. The directions could have been better about how to size each piece. I wish I would have rolled the product out and cut into three equal pieces, then wrapped each piece around. I also ran out of the enclosed tape before I was completely finished. I could have used a little more. March 5, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works Great Installed this when the weather got cold. Before i installed it, the heater would run constantly. Now it fires up only after alot of use then immediately turns off and stays off. January 17, 2014
