Central Heating Pump Insulation

Postby markdavies500 » Wed Apr 18, 2012 11:59 am

I'm looking at developing a product to insulate a domestic central heating pump. It would be easy to fit over the pump and could be removed to gain access.

Currently products are provided to insulate hot water pipes and the hot water tank in a domestic central heating system. It is estimated that pipe insulation can save around £15 a year and hot water tank jackets around £40 per year. But there is no product for the pump.

Early indications show that the product would cost approx £7 and would save approx the same valve per year in energy bills. Therefore the pay back for the product would be 1 year.

Any thoughts or feedback would be appreciated
