Pipe insulation is basically insulation used on pipe work, which reduces the amount of heat lost and therefore keeps your water hotter for longer. They can be foam tubes that cover exposed pipes between the hot water cylinder and boiler.

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 could save you around £20-35 a year - more than the cost of the jacket!
