Boiler Insulation

Stoker Coal Boilers automatically feed the coal and have controls and pumps just like any conventions boiler. They are intended to be used as a primary heat and often have domestic hot water coils as an added bonus. They can be set up independently or in dual sytem with your existing oil/gas boiler. They can accommodate both hot water base board or steam plumbing.

My EFM 350 has no case or insulation, refurbished . I was wondering what is the best insulation to use, and where to get it? I am thinking of making a metal case to enclose it. Any suggestions , ideas ? Thanks John

Foil faced foam insulation and foil tape can do a pretty nice job if you take your time.
