Better than nothing

April 26, 2013
from Largo, Florida
While the basic idea is there, this isn't very effective. Any time you wrap your water heater, you are keeping more of the hot water in and the radiant heat from coming out. Good in principle, but the this blanket isn't really thick enough to block very much more than the stock water heater would. I ended up getting two of them wrapping them on top of each other and I did see my electric usage going down about 5 bucks per month. Not a huge savings, but better than nothing.
