Does anyone know if it is possible to insulate around the areas where the pipes go into the hot water cylinder? It is an akvaterm cylinder and I have no idea why there are areas around the pipes which are left completely exposed. A lot of heat is lost to the surrounding air as a result of this. Can this be insulated and if so how should I go about it?

Thanks

The amount of heat loss from that will cost you at least £1 a year. Dry a towel on it ?
