Answer: 
It is a simple rectangle. 48 inches is the height if you look at it "landscape" style. But it is the width if you look at it in "portrait" style.

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 92 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is an Exclusive Product! After enclosing the condominium porch, where the water heater is located, the heat loss from the water heater had to be reduced as part of my effort to reduce the air conditioning load. This is an outstanding product that fully enveloped the thirty gallon low profile water heater. However small, I look forward to savings on water heating and air conditioning. October 6, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by This is an interesting product in its environmental positives: it saves the consumer money by conserving energy and the environment by recycling waste fabric. BUT: I found in my sample of two bundles (although I have read others having the same experience) the contents of the package are actually more like 48 in. x 65 in., thereby significantly smaller than represented. Also, it is fairly irregularly cut in that it is not a perfect rectangle. It seems to be hand-cut by someone who did not give a dang. Finally, the density, or thickness, is a bit irregular. Some patches seemed a little thin. I used it by cutting it up into smaller pieces to close off air conditioner vents for the winter. It is not too difficult to cut with ordinary craft scissors and it seems to be doing the job for which it was intended. I would not be so sure about it as a water heater blanket, though, and I certainly would not be dependent of the packaging dimensions. October 25, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Worth IT Measuring: You better wrap the thing around your tank first and then cut. Instructions said to measure the circumference add 3" but it was short a bit. Next time, I'd lay it around the tank and see how much to trim. Other than that it was an easy diy project. Also, the bag says it's 75" long but layed on the floor next to a measuring tape it fell short at 73". Just an FYI. Thick and easy to work with denim filled metallic finish. Metallic tape came in package. $28 is worth the trouble. October 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by High R-value, easy installation, no scratchy fiberglass Wanted this for two purposes. First, since my water heater is in the garage next to a wall which abuts our kitchen pantry, the inside back of the pantry gets warm--not ideal for food storage. Secondly, of course anything which helps to retain heat in our gas water heater would be a good thing. Installation was relatively easy for one person after I watched a YouTube video on how to make cuts for the relief valve, how to secure with the provided foil tape, and how to position the blanket relative to the heating element. The denim insulation means you don't need to wear gloves like you would had the insulation been fiberglass. All together this took me about 30 minutes, the majority of which was working the blanket around tight spaces, plus getting the backing off of the foil tape (get someone with fingernails to help!). August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exactly what I wanted Installation wasn't that difficult and glad not to have itch like one would get from fiberglass. August 9, 2016
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 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
