Insulating Hot Water Tanks and Pipes

Why insulating your water tank and pipes is important:

Insulating water heaters is an effective way of ensuring that hot water stays hot by reducing heat loss from the tank. Insulating both the tank and pipes properly can lead to savings of 4% to 9% in water heating costs. A general rule of thumb to understand whether your water tank requires additional insulation is to touch it. If the tank feels warm, it needs additional insulation to prevent heat loss.
