A geyser blanket is basically another layer of thermal insulation designed to be wrapped around your geyser. Most geyser blankets available consist of a 50mm layer of fibreglass insulation, but the thicker the blanket the better. We prefer to install 100mm geyser blankets. It is the geyser blankets job to reduce the rate of the water cooling within the geyser. The good news is that blankets are relatively inexpensive.
High Energy Consumption
Water in your geyser is constantly being reheated, if your geyser is not insulated properly, with a noticeable increase in your daily electricity usage. They are known for their high energy consumption and are responsible for more than half of a household’s monthly electricity bill.
Geysers alone use about 45% of your homes monthly electricity bill and the inlet and outlet pipes are responsible for around 13% of the cost. Installing a blanket and insulating your hot water pipes with think pink aerolite or isotherm insulation is an efficient solution is to minimize thermal energy loss.
We have different kinds of geyser blankets depending on what you are looking for. If your geyser is in the roof, a layer of 100mm think pink aerolite or isotherm is what we recommend.
For geysers that are outdoors or exposed to the elements, you need a geyser blanket with an outer layer of foil to protect the insulation, in these case’s we suggest a sisalation or alububble geyser blanket with your choice of either aerolite or isotherm on the interior.
What is the price of a geyser blanket?
The price of geyser blankets will vary depending on what type of geyser blanket you are looking for. We do many kinds of geyser blankets depending on your price range, thickness of the material and what product you are looking for.
The geyser blankets with a cheaper price would be either an aerolite or isotherm straight wrap. If you are looking for a foil faced geyser blanket, either in isofoil or factorylite geyser blanket, then expect to pay a slightly higher price.
If your geyser is outdoors you will have to use a foil faced blanket to keep the material from weathering.
Take a look at some of the types of insulation.
What you have to know:
- A geysers temperature drops when not being used, triggering the indoor regulator (thermostat) to initiate reheating on a progressing basis. A geyser blanket kills the recurrence of this event by pushing heat maintenance
- More or less 20% reduction in energy expenses is achievable if wrapped legitimately with a further conceivable 10% if the hot water pipes and funnels are additionally fittingly wrapped
- The payback period is ordinarily between 3 and 6 months relying upon boiling point water utilization
- It is support free and simple to fit, as long as you have free access to the territory around the geyser
- Adjust your thermostat setting between 45 and 55 degrees C
- Switch your geyser off before leaving to go away
- Don’t bath, rather shower
- Make sure that all taps are properly closed, especially hot water taps
- Check and replace the geyser’s sacrificial anode on a regular basis
