Hi Lisa... great information. I don't think I see a water heater insulated more than maybe in 1% of the houses I show.

I saw so many water heaters in attics in Texas. Often wondered why. This is a great and easy tip.

Lisa I do not think most homeowners realize how expensive it is to heat hot water.  If they did more of them would be looking for ideas like this to cut down on those costs.

Frees up closet space inside the home Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty and with our hot summers...no water heat loss, the attic is well over 100 degrees!

Excellent tip, Lisa.  One of the biggest energy users in most homes is the water heater.
