In development and capital planning, we all know there are consequences in cutting corners. An expense that was cut in the beginning phases of a project to save money may ultimately negatively impact the bottom line. Cutting corners, when it comes to mechanical insulation, is a huge “penny wise, dollar foolish” mistake, in both the long and short term.
Today, we see energy costs skyrocketing, yet many people overlook the most obvious steps to being more energy efficient. Professionally-installed mechanical insulation is a simple way to help you go green, saving you energy and money, and your return on investment begins immediately after installation.
Whether you are developing a project for another buyer or planning to keep your building for years to come, professionally-installed mechanical insulation guarantees the highest possible property value.
That’s because your mechanical systems work around the clock, 24 hours per day, seven days per week. Professionally-installed mechanical insulation prevents these systems from being senselessly overworked, saving the owner money by the minute. It will protect your heating and cooling systems from mold and condensation, ensuring the long-term protection of that equipment and avoiding future costs, and since the potential consequences of improper insulation are serious health hazards, having the proper systems in place to prevent these issues also extends the life of the entire building.
Installing the proper insulation maximizes the effectiveness of heating and cooling systems and helps to significantly reduce energy loss. Reduced energy loss means increased efficiency, which saves you money and is better for the environment.
The Massachusetts legislature is poised to pass a bill that will penalize building owners, by way of significant taxes, in exact correlation to the property’s carbon footprint. Where it is more prudent than ever to be more environmentally accountable, professionally-installed mechanical insulation is a necessity for any serious buyer or developer.
