      So if I understand you correctly, with my currently uninsulated 7.5
      gallon boiler a 1000 watt element may be necessary to compensate for
      heat loss at the boiler? I realize there are a bunch of variables in
      this game but I want to make sure i am understanding the basics as I
      make the Hobby more technical.
      To add to this, what would be a good insulation to use for the boiler?
      I know a couple of beach towels and some duct tape would help but
      there has to be a "Good and Reasonable" solution.
