Save energy and money by installing energy-efficient pipe insulation

Many strategies businesses can take to reduce energy waste are easy to identify, like replacing older, inefficient appliances and technology with more modern models. Others require business owners and facilities managers to think more holistically about their operations to discover. One example is installing pipe insulation on steam or hot water pipes to reduce energy and water waste.

Insulation, made from materials like fiberglass, mineral fibers, foam or calcium silicate, is as crucial for pipes as it is for walls and roofs. Insulation slows the transfer of heat from water or steam in pipes to the surrounding environment. Adding insulation to pipes reduces the heat loss and allows boilers and water heaters to operate more efficiently, lowering overhead costs.
