Why Mechanical Insulation?
Updated On: Apr 21, 2018

 


           In any large or small commercial structure, the performance of heating and cooling systems are a vital indicator of a building's overall efficiency. When working appropriately, these systems can maximize effectiveness and minimize waste. However, if they under perform, they can serve as the culprit for energy loss, greenhouse gas emissions and wasted money. Mechanical insulation is the X-factor between success and failure, and is a fundamental - if often overlooked - aspect of green building.

 

Somewhere in your facility's boiler room, you probably have a few uninsulated valves. If you properly insulated just ONE valve, within a year, you could save:*

*        49 million BTU's of heat loss
*        7,600 pounds of CO2 emissions
*        15 pounds of nitrogen oxides emissions
*        $600 in total energy savings

*Calculations were obtained using NAIMA 3E Plus 4.0 software.

Although mechanical insulation may not be the first thing you think about when is comes to green building, you cannot underestimate its importance. It saves energy, it cuts greenhouse gas emissions, it improves indoor air quality and it decreases noise pollution. Most importantly, it does all of these things immediately.
 

The best way to understand the worth and potential of mechanical insulation is through an Insulation Energy Appraisal. An appraisal estimates the performance of your current insulated systems and highlights the difference a more efficient system can make.
