Getting conflicting info on whether it's safe to use a hot water heater
insulation blanket on a GAS hot water heater with power venting. If you
wrap only the sides, and follow the instructions to not obstruct any of
the openings, nor put it near where the flame is or on the top, how is
it a fire hazard?
Actually, you need to check with the manufacturer of the water heater,
especially if it's still under warranty. Some of the newer water heaters
tell you NOT to use an insulating blanket, and will void your warranty (if
the manufacturer finds out)
