Has the level of hot water in your house been disappointing lately? Instead of buying a new hot water heater, you may be able to fix the problem by adding a water heater blanket. The Iowa Energy Center estimates that a water heater blanket can reduce energy loss by up to 45 percent. Some water heaters are incompatible with blankets, so be sure to read the owner’s manual or ask your local plumbing company for their advice. Generally speaking, if the outside of your water heater feels warm to the touch, a water heater blanket will provide useful insulation.
