Description

ValveCosy is an innovative product designed to insulate the valve on your hot water storage tank, enhancing the efficiency of your home's hot water system. By insulating this often overlooked part of the hot water system, ValveCosy prevents heat loss, leading to reduced energy consumption and lower utility bills. Made in Australia, it reflects ecoMaster's commitment to sustainable and practical home solutions.

ValveCosy is not only easy to install but also serves as a cost-effective upgrade to your home. It ensures that the heat stays where it's needed, inside the tank, thereby enhancing the overall efficiency of the hot water system. This simple yet effective measure is particularly beneficial during colder months when heat loss can be more significant. By choosing ValveCosy, homeowners make a small but impactful step towards reducing their carbon footprint and contributing to environmental sustainability.

The Valvecosy™ Insulating Cover is fitted on your hot water service valve. It helps you save energy and money by reducing heat loss from your water heat tank via your Pressure Temperature Relief (PTR) valve. 

Independent laboratory testing indicated that the installation of a Valve Cosy resulted in a 5.6% reduction in heat loss. This provides a very rapid pay-back period on your investment.

This easy-to-fit cover is designed to fit neatly over your valve. Valvecosy™ can be clipped easily in a matter of seconds and does not require any tools for installation.

Many variables influence the amount of heat and thus energy loss from a PTR valve. There are so many bonuses to using it! It can reduce heat loss, conserve energy, save money, and more.

Valvecosy improvements

I ordered a Valvecosy from the EcoMaster and it came promptly in the mail. Only one colour was available: Dune. Same colour as my house. Lucky!
The device was easy to attach to the TPR valve on my HWS but seems a bit loose-fitting around the connection from the HWS. Perhaps some different sized foam inserts included in the pack would give it a better fit to different installations.
The two halves come completely apart which makes it easy to fit but it might be even easier if the halves were hinged in a clamshell arrangement (not so easy to drop one half).
I found the copper pipe draining my TPR valve also stays warm so it is obviously losing energy too and I have covered it in foam lagging. It might be helpful to offer this in a "Customers who bought Valvecosy also bought ..." type offer.
I have a heat pump HWS running off solar energy so the energy I save only costs me the Feed In Tariff. On this basis it might take me fifty years to re-coup my outlay. If I could pick up a Valvecosy in a hardware store for $10 it would be a no-brainer. Give one to each family member. But for $28 plus $11 shipping it's a feel-good indulgence.
Valvecosy is a great idea. It’s just too expensive.

Hi Nigel

Thank you for sharing your review.
So awesome to hear that the colour matched your home too!
We appreciate your comments and will certainly pass on your suggested improvements to the manufacturer.

Valvecosy was tested in 2019 to determine heat loss. The percentage of improvement of heat loss due to Valvecosy was 5.6%.
A 5.6% savings on the energy loss from the tank would pay back that investment faster than one might anticipate.

Thanks again for sharing your thoughts. Have a great day!
