Water tank insulation is vital. If you don’t have the proper measures in position, you may find yourself losing a lot of money. By stopping the heat from rising towards your tank, cold water shall remain colder for longer. In addition, you won’t find the tank suddenly freezing because the insulating materials create a barrier against the cold.
If you have water tanks in the loft, it would be best to insulate them down the sides. Additionally, you will require an insulated lid. The two principal kinds of insulation for loft tanks are jackets and boards.
Whilst utilising insulation boards, see to it that you have the appropriate size for your tank. You’ll know when it’s right because it won’t expose any sections. You can find different board sizes to choose from. There’s also the option to cut them to fit if necessary. You must install the correct lid prior to insulating the tank’s top section. Once you have done so, you should place the board on top. Make exceptions for the overflow that moves into the tank from above.
With insulation jackets, you’ll discover that there are numerous sizes to choose from. Have a look and see which board fits your tank the best. If yours isn’t a standard sized size, then you will need a jacket bigger than your module. Whatever you do, make sure that you don’t fit the jacket over the tank’s top area. Do it around the sides. Ideally, the top should have an easily accessible insulated lid. Just like when using boards, make allowances for the overflow that goes into the mechanism from above.
