Water Heater Jacket Cuts Fuel Bill
Electric and gas water heaters often waste valuable energy because heat escapes from a poorly insulated tank. Now that loss can be stopped by wrapping the heater in a heavilyinsulated jacket.
S. & S. Gasket Company offers the Thereto Saver, a heat insulation kit they claim will save $25 worth of energy per year. The fiberglass material has twice the density of duct wrapping. The Thereto Saver kit contains enough material to wrap a 24-in, dia. heater, an extra thick top plate for electric units, and 6-in. wide adhesive tape. The do-it-yourself kit sells for $20 and is available directly from the manufacturer.
