The most suitable temperature range for domestic purposes is about 200C to 260C .Besides, both cold and hot water appear to be essential frequently for industrial purposes. In summer bringing down the water temperature at a comfortable range causes significant energy consumption. This project aims at saving energy to control water temperature by making water tank insulated .Therefore applying better insulation system which would reduce the disparity between the desired temperature and the actual temperature and hence saving energy significantly. Following the investigation, this project used cotton jacket to insulate the tank and the tank was placed under a paddy straw shade with a view to attaining the maximum energy saving. Finally, it has been found that reduction in energy consumption is to be about 50-60% which is quite satisfactory. Since comfortable temperature range varies from person to person this project thus combines insulating effect with automatic water heater.
