Answer: 
Yes - the height is 48". My heater is 60" tall which worked out well since all of the connections and vents were on the the bottom foot or so.

Answer: 
Mine did not. I did have enough to cover the top edges but I guess it depends on how tall your heater actually is.

Answer: 
I had some heat resistant tape left over from another project. It's the same tape you would use to seal up a dryer vent connection. I could have used duct tape since the seam seal was on the outside of the blanket.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 87 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fit my need I used this to line a engine compartment for a Diesel Pusher class A Motor Home. It was just the right size to cut all that I needed. It is more for sound than heat. Using aluminum tape I bought separate. I sealed all exposed edges so they would not absorb any oil or fuel. It is not glued in place but held at 2 inch space with deck screws, stand off spacers and fender washers. It fit my need. The old insulation was glued. It all just fell off, exposed edges soaked up oil and diesel from the breather tube on the engine. A big mess. This should work great to replace it. Engine breather extended , no longer an issue. Only time will tell. Tom April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great For Covering Radiators I am using this as a cover for a boiler system room radiator that I have no control over. The radiator at max heat gets hot to the touch; when on you probably could not leave your hand on it for more than 1 second. I have it wrapped over the radiator with the insulation side on the radiator metal, and as expected it almost completely eliminates heat coming from the radiator and makes sleep much more tolerable during the winter. There has been no damage to the insulation nor fire risk, however my radiators do not get hot enough to cause damage to fabrics, ymmv. April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Denim insulation Good alternative to fiberglass water heater insulation blankets May 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by smart move I am very pleased with this product. It completely wraps around my hot water heater and was easy to provide access to the removable adjustment panels. It was very easy to work with also, without all the itching and irritation from building insulation. i would highly recommend this product March 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Product Great Product, Completely satisfied. Covered my 40 gallon tank with about 10 inch's to spare which I removed.Good thick quality. Tape was relatively easy to work with as long as you take your time with it. I would recommend that you install this blanket with someone to assist you as I did because it will be easier. March 22, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bundled the water heater The package had everything it was supposed to and even included the foil tape I needed to secure the blanket. There was more than enough to wrap my water heater with plenty left over. Easy to trim and fit. March 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Choice and an Excellent Alternative to Fiberglass We wanted something "healthier" than the old fiberglass style of water heater blankets. The fact that these are basically made from jeans was a huge advantage. Like the company video says - you can pretty much wrap yourself up in it and use it as a blanket if you wanted to! The installation was pretty straight forward, just take your time as it can get a little fiddly. There is plenty of silver tape in the package, and it has held really well from day one. The blankets fit great on our water heaters (we have a dual system) Our water heaters are in an unfinished utility closet in the basement, so I also took the time to purchase three, 6 foot sections of foam insulation and wrap the pipes to/from the water heaters. In between the blankets and the pipe insulation, our utility bill dropped $20 over the next month! I would definitely would recommend this to anyone! February 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice stuff! Fits well. Works well. Nicer than fiberglass, enough nicer to justify the higher price compared to basic generic fiberglass blankets. I can feel some warmth under the blanket, showing that even with the new extra-insulated heaters, a blanket can cut losses (especially in my very cold cellar). I figure to pay-back in a year or two. Fit: Don't go by "gallons". Same-gallons heaters can be tall and narrow or short and wide. I wish the blanket makers would go by tank height and diameter. Measure height above the burner-door (total height for electric). My electric heater is 48 inches tall. Measure tank diameter. My heater is 21" diameter. Add twice the blanket thickness. This product says 1.8" thick (small print on label) so 3.6". Call it 4 inches. 21+4 is 25 inches. Multiply by 3, makes 75 inches. Round-up a few inches, if possible. Using 3.14 instead of "3", I figured 77.3 inches. I got this 48x75 inch blanket, close enough. In fact I got about 80 inches of blanket, and have a small overlap. But a small gap is also acceptable. The included tape is fine stuff, and a reasonable amount. I like to over-tape, so I finished with aluminum (not cloth) Duct Tape. Compared to fiberglass blankets: this denim is nicer to hands, but also heavy. It is uncooperative, wants to fall down before you can get tape on it. Four hands would help. Denim is tough. And this is nearly 2 inches thick. You want strong sharp scissors or a fresh-sharp utility knife to trim this! Remember you do NOT seal the thermostat covers. (Removable plates.) There is an over-heat safety switch in there. If over-insulated, it will shut-off too easily, and it is an annoying task to re-set it. (For gas heaters) Don't seal anywhere in the burner area. It isn't needed (no water down there) and could be dangerous. (For electric heaters) You can insulate all the way down, though the last few inches is not important. But if you have a drip-pan under the heater, you really want to stop a few inches up and keep the drip-pan clear. Let the blanket go long on the top, or trim it. This blanket won't cover the top (unless your heater is very small). Heaters usually have ample top insulation between the dome-tank and the flat top. If you do insulate on top, the relief valve MUST be readily accessible for your yearly test, and so it will blow-off if the tank pressure goes too high. My new heater came with a bit of foam for the relief valve, but if that was not designed-in, leave a few inches of free-air around the valve so it senses heat properly. February 23, 2016
