As a new administration begins and energy efficiency becomes mandated, now is the time to invest in professionally installed mechanical insulation systems. This is one of the most cost-effective ways to reduce the carbon footprint of a building, and assure the building owner their investment will pay dividends well into the future.
Our national, state, and local goals are aligned around energy efficiency, and mechanical insulation is a proven technology that promotes these goals. When you “go green” and partner with Heat & Frost Insulators Local 6, you’re guaranteed to have a team of professionals who will help you attain your environmental and energy cost-reduction goals for commercial, industrial, and residential buildings.
As the pandemic unfolded and the HVAC systems of schools, office buildings, and health care facilities were all scrutinized more closely than in past decades, the lack of adequate insulation was also discovered. In our efforts to return to “normal,” we cannot miss the opportunity to upgrade buildings sorely in need of repair, and at the same time reduce carbon emissions through reducing energy consumption.
The health of a building, the longevity of equipment, and consumption of energy are all directly related to the quality and upkeep of mechanical insulation systems. Properly installed insulation will protect your equipment, avoiding costly repairs in the future, and keep your heating and cooling systems free from mold and condensation. The benefits to any building are clear, and these benefits extend to the environment and our planet as we reduce waste.
Under a Biden administration, the goal of retrofitting four million commercial buildings and cutting the carbon footprint of our national building stock in half by 2035 is an ambitious one. One of the easiest ways to reduce energy use is to ensure a building’s systems are properly insulated, allowing minimal or zero energy loss. Mechanical systems work constantly – 24 hours per day, seven days per week – and therefore the energy savings accrue without stopping.
We look forward to continuing to partner with developers and contractors to save money, save energy, and being part of the solution for our environment.
