Golf-club Chooses Green Deal http://t.co/O5HIOOVuOY
Lagging water tanks and pipes reduces the amount of heat that escapes, so you spend less money heating water up, and hot water stays hotter for longer.
How much could you save?
Insulating your hot water cylinder is one of the easiest ways to save energy and therefore money. If you already have a jacket fitted, check the thickness, it should be at least 75mm thick. If not, it's worth treating your cylinder to a new winter coat. Fitting a British Standard jacket around your cylinder will cut heat loss by over 75% and save you around £40 a year - more than the cost of the jacket!
By slipping pipe insulation around your exposed hot water pipes you’ll keep your hot water hotter for longer. Insulation for hot water pipes will cost around £15 but will save you that much in just a year. Fitting insulation to pipes is easy if the pipes are accessible; if your pipes are hard to reach, you may need professional help.
Fitting a jacket and pipe lagging will also save 230kg of carbon dioxide.
