Value of Insulation

Insulation saves money, improves lives and protects the environment

Properly installed mechanical insulation provides long-term energy efficiency, emission reduction, cost savings and safety benefits, according to the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, Inc. (ASHRAE).

value of InsulationAccording to ASHRAE research, insulation provides the following benefits:
  • Reduces tons of greenhouse gas emissions released into the atmosphere
  • Prevents loss of energy
  • Controls condensation
  • Protects occupant safety and public health wellness
  • Regulates surface temperature

Insulation provides a protective barrier between the conditioned areas of a home or building and the outside environment.

When a home or building is properly insulated from the roof down to its foundation, it allows for optimal energy efficiency by providing resistance to heat flow. The more heat flow resistance a building has, the lower its heating and cooling costs will be.

With new construction, a properly designed and installed insulation system provides an excellent return on investment and quick payback through cost savings. With insulation's energy-saving qualities, a properly designed and installed insulation system immediately reduces the need for energy and results in significant savings.

A 3E Energy Audit, as provided by the International Association of Heat and Frost Insulators and Allied workers, can ensure that a building is as comfortable and energy efficient as possible. Air leaking through face plates on switches and outlets, and escaping around doors, windows, pipes, and under sinks could add up to have a space the size of a large window that is constantly open.

Sustained Value Through Insulation

Today more than ever - as well as throughout our 100 year history - the International Association of Heat and Frost Insulators and Allied Workers has taken the imperative nature of energy savings realized through insulation very seriously.

We specialize in the work that creates energy savings and through this process our customers are able to realize true energy efficiency through insulation installed by a union insulator.

Properly insulating industrial, commercial bio-tech, medical, educational and governmental facilities as well as other assets saves energy. As a result it also protects the environment, saves money and increases the performance of mechanical systems that do not work as hard. Additional savings can then further be realized by longer lasting systems that require less repair and/or maintenance.
