A geyser blanket is an additional layer of insulation designed to be wrapped around the geyser. Most products available typically consist of a 50mm – 135mm layer, however the thicker the insulation the better. A good geyser blanket reduces the rate of cooling of the water inside the geyser considerably.
Furthermore, geyser blankets are relatively inexpensive. Reduce energy consumption with a geyser blanket If your geyser is not insulated, water is constantly being reheated with a resultant escalation in daily electricity usage.
