I took the 20 questions Green Building questionnaire and I have a concern about the question of putting a blanket around my water heater. I recently installed a water heater and the manual clearly states that you are not to put a blanket arount the heater as this will VOID the warranty. The tank is fully insulated and the manufacturer emphatically states this. I bought the tank from Lowe’s.
This can be misleading to some and its important that we don’t add that as a necessary element to the inspection which would affect their “score”.
Just an FYI.
