Green Energy Construction
Local 41 Heat and Frost Insulators with our International Association of Heat and Frost Insulators and Allied Workers has been trending “green” for more than 100 years!
We know that properly installed mechanical insulation saves money, improves lives and protects the environment. This isn’t “the latest thing” to us as cost efficient, energy friendly insulation has been our lifeblood for our entire existence since 1903.
In fact, according to the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, Inc. (ASHRAE), properly installed mechanical insulation provides long-term energy efficiency, emission reduction, cost savings and safety benefits. ASHRAE has stated that insulation can reduce the number of tons of greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere, prevent loss of energy, control condensation, protect occupant safety and public health wellness, and regulate surface temperature.
Further, the National Insulation Association, the approximately 350-member trade association representing the mechanical and specialty insulation industry since 1953, estimates that maintenance of insulation at industrial facilities alone can generate more than $3.6 billion in energy savings per year, and reduce 83 billion pounds of carbon dioxide.
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. Our members and affiliated insulator contractors are well-prepared to create a sustainable environment in buildings and facilities through insulation.
