Insulation matters

The effects of mechanical insulation on energy efficiency, utility spending, the health of workers, and the environment are staggering. Inadequate and poorly installed insulation around heating and cooling systems are the leading causes of wasted energy, lost money, and the growth of mold — a significant growing public health risk. In addition to generating massive amounts of carbon dioxide each year, poorly insulated systems are costing companies in the U.S. billions of dollars in wasted energy.

Here’s what implementing a comprehensive mechanical insulation maintenance and upgrade program in the commercial and industrial markets could lead to:



$4.8 billion in energy savings each year.



43 million metric tons of CO2 emissions prevented each year.



89,000 jobs generated by mechanical insulation.
