Insulating watertanks is incredibly vital. It will save you energy and costs as well, particularly if it is in the very best condition. If you take steps to halt the heat in its attempts to rise towards the tank, then cold water systems shall remain at the proper temperature, and they won’t freeze once temperatures begin to fall.

When providing insulation for watertanks, we make use of the special polypropylene tank lining system. It has proven itself popular amongst our clients for a number of reasons including its long life and low cost.

For those proud owners of a hot watertank, insulating them is an absolute must. After being heated up by the boiler, this is where all the hot water travels. With a lack of adequate insulation however, your heat will be lost before you know it. In the end, more energy shall be required for re-heating purposes. Hot water is essential all year round, therefore, unlike space heating, money can be saved by insulating the tank, even in the summer.

If at this point you are wondering if your pipes could do with some insulation too, then the answer is yes. Those heated pipes that run between your boiler and cylinder can give off massive amounts of heat. An even more crucial reason as to why water pipes should be insulated is that there’s the possibility of them freezing during the winter. This is a costly affair to rectify, but insulation can safeguard your pipes against problems such as this.

Even after your tank has been insulated, there’s still more that you can do. You’ll be wasting money if you are heating up water when it’s not needed. Our advice would be to watch your programmer and make certain that everything heats up at the right times and for the correct duration.

At Nationwide Water Solutions the polypropylene tank lining system that we implement enables us to install the insulation behind the lining. Before we install it we will inspect the watertank to ensure we account for any other issues. In this way we can tackle many of them all at once.
