Adding an additional 80mm jacket to your hot water cylinder is a simple and effective way to improve the efficiency of your hot water system. The hot water cylinder jacket acts as insulation, helping to retain heat and reduce heat loss from the stored water. This can lead to significant energy savings and a more environmentally friendly hot water solution.

Why consider adding an 80mm jacket to your hot water cylinder?

  1. Improved heat retention: The jacket provides an extra layer of insulation around your hot water cylinder, reducing heat loss and keeping the water hotter for longer. This means your boiler or immersion heater won't need to work as hard to maintain the desired water temperature, resulting in energy savings.
  2. Reduced energy consumption: With better heat retention, your hot water system consumes less energy to maintain the water temperature. This translates to lower energy bills and reduced greenhouse gas emissions, making your home more energy-efficient.

Frequently asked questions

  1. Is my hot water cylinder suitable for an 80mm jacket? Most standard-sized hot water cylinders are compatible with an 80mm jacket. Ensure that your cylinder has sufficient space to accommodate the additional insulation.
  2. Can I install the jacket myself? Installing an 80mm jacket is typically a straightforward DIY task. However, if you are unsure or uncomfortable with the installation process, it's best to seek professional assistance to ensure proper fitting and insulation performance.
  3. What are the potential energy savings? The amount of energy saved will depend on various factors, including the initial insulation of your hot water cylinder and your hot water usage. If there's no existing insulation you should however experience noticeable energy savings and a reduction in your hot water heating costs.
