If the water is already hot , why would you want to heat it ?

Asked by: Whiteboywild
The jacket is to keep heat in tank during cold weather so that the wateater does no need to come on as often and therefore savescost on power or fuel supply

What did you use to keep the blanket closed

What kind of tape

I assume this works well for a water heater in garage for winter?

Asked by: Jeff
Look at the R value... Is R6.7 enough insulation for the low temperatures your garage experiences? Any insulation is better than none. The tape that comes with this product is not sufficient. Use a high quality duct tape, then use metal reflective tape over that.

48 in. x 75 in. Denim Insulation Hot Water Heater Blanket is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 193.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have wrapped many water heaters in my life time, and this Ultra Touch denim blanket is the BEST... I have wrapped many water heaters in my life time, and this Ultra Touch denim blanket is the BEST!!! Everything I read from the manufacturer was correct and with the all the highly rated reviews, I am glad I went with this one. Yes, it is much easier to install with someone else helping you, but all blankets are this way. I have a 50 gallon medium width tank and the 48" X 75" blanket was a perfect fit. The tape that came with was superior than the extra ducting tape I was going to use. I made sure I measured the cuts of tape for all areas before I started to cut. There was just enough tape. Though this is denim and did not create any dust or itchiness for my wife and I, I do suggest using gloves, dish washing gloves would work best to hold the blanket in place while you tape. Best buy and now I water stays hot longer and our electricity (we have an electric water heater) is down - just in time for winter. We are a happy cozy couple of bears now. :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MADE in USA! NO fiberglass! I had to order this online. It should be sold in every Home Depot store because it is MADE in USA. NO fiberglass. Reasonably priced. First time I ever did this and no special tools needed. Measure height and distance around your hot water heater. I cut blanket to size with a large household scissor. Used Gorilla type tape and the tape that came with the item. Read the instructions and online reviews for ideas about how to fit it to my size heater. Patched around the areas that should stay exposed on a gas hot water heater with the short side of the blanket and parts trimmed off the long side. You can do this, too. Save some energy and save American Jobs!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product but lenght is shorter than described We used the blankets as insulating material for our wooden vaulted ceiling, it works great, it doesn't present health risk like fiberglass, (particles it can be breathed in or swallowed with long term health damages according to many studies), and it creates a good thermal barrier without being too thick and leaves my beautiful wooden beams in view. The problem is that the rolls are not 75 inches long. Most of the blankets we received (20) were 70-71 inches and a couple of them 69 inches long. That was very disappointing, but we needed to get the job done and we kept them and used them anyway. That's my only complaint, and as result I have to order more because the square footage I received is not what I had ordered based on the description.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heater Blankets I used these blankets to insulate my 18 foot wide by 8 foot high garage door. It was easy to cut and install (using Liquid nails) and has made about 10 degree difference in the internal temp. My door faces West and would reach 103 degrees in the late PM and temps in the garage were uncomfortable. Now they run just over 92 but with the 6000 BTU air con I can maintain temps around 89 with lo humidity. attic insulation is next. Door is much quieter now.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Both Good and Bad After looking at cheaper versions of water heater blankets, I decided on this product because it is made from denim instead of fiberglass, although the packaging still recommends you wear safety gear to install the blanket. Since I see that other reviews have mentioned this, I will reiterate the point that you need to measure your hot water heater before purchasing the blanket! When I went to install it, I found the blanket was made for a taller, skinnier hot water heater than what I have. After fitting leftover pieces together, all was okay. There is tape included with this product; unfortunately, there wasn't enough provided, and what was there, came off after about three weeks. Luckily, because there wasn't enough tape provided, I also used duct tape during the original instillation, which has kept the blanket on the water heater. Would I recommend this product? Probably, if for no other reason than it is a good alternative to conventional fiber glass blankets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product The denim is much easier to install than the fiberglass blankets. I had to purchase 2 of these as one roll simply wouldn't fit my 80 gallon tamk. I had enough left over to cover the top of the tank. Highly reccommend purchassing a roll of Duct tape as the tape that comes pre-packaged is absolutely worthless. Also reccommend using a pair of sharp shears to trim with... The denim is very difficult to cut. My gas bills dropped 28% after installing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does The Job There has been a significant reduction of heat leakge from the water heater. It is housed in a closet that used to get quite warm. This kit is the only one to buy if you do not want to spend a lot of time with itchy fiberglass. Expect to trim and cut and piece the right shape to do the job. Have extra foil tape on hand, you will need it. If you take your time it will work out well.
