Geyser Blanket- Simple and Effective.
This is a geyser blanket, looks cosy doesn’t it? Well, it is for your geyser. By insulating the geyser against normal heat loss through the steel casing, the geyser blanket keeps your hot water hot for longer – meaning your geyser won’t come on as often , thereby saving you energy and money.
Because hot water electricity use comprises around 40% of a typical households consumption, it is important to reduce heat losses in this area. Often geyser water temperature will drop by 1 degree C per hour, so constant energy is needed to maintain the temperature. This blanket can cut this energy use by half. It is not fiberglass, so is easily installed without mess. Thus the geyser blanket ensures a substantial saving both financially and environmentally for each household.
The Geyser Blanket – Another step in your saving energy strategy.
Installing the geyser blanket properly is the key to achieving the true potential that this product offers. Ensuring it is wrapped properly and secured is critical and if you are a handyman adept, this should not be a problem. It is also recommended that you insulate the hot water pipes as well to increase the energy saving and reduce heat loss through the hot water pipe system.
By effective insulation, the blanket ‘wraps’ your geyser in a thermal insulated cover and , like you in winter with your blankets wrapped around to keep warm , the geyser blanket does the same.
The Geyser Blanket – What’s it made of?
They can made of various insulation materials, the most common being fiberglass.Virgin fiber wool, and two-ply polyester and bonded polypropylene have also been manufactured and used.
There is a very strong drive to now to make them from recycled PET ( 2L Cold drink bottles) and I personally prefer these ( and these are the ones we use in our installations -click here for more info) as they provide and eco-friendly solution as well as an effective insulator.
Geyser blankets can come in 50 or 75 mm thicknesses, on up to 100 to 150 mm thick, for larger units. A reflective aluminum foil encases the insulation layers; its design causes radiant heat to be reflected back and contained within the geyser unit.
You could also use other energy efficient products like solar geysers or solar water heaters to increase your savings even more.
As an addition to your energy saving strategy , the geyser blanket will offer you another way to save energy and money every month.
