The minimum insulation requirements are set forth by ASHRAE/I ES Standard 90-1 and by Federal Public Law 102-486, “Energy Policy Act of 1992” (Subtitle C, Section 342a,5,G). As of January 1, 1994, storage water heaters and hot water storage tanks having more than 140 gallons of storage capacity must meet more rigid thermal energy standards. These standards can meet standby loss or heat loss requirements if the tank surface area is thermally insulated to R -12.5 and if a standing pilot light is not used.
The K Factor of foam changes with the temperature of the foam. The chart below was obtained by Test Method C 117-87 which allows a better precision than other tests and which also allows measuring the K Factor for the range the foam can withstand.
