Want to calculate the financial returns related to a financial investment in mechanical insulation? The National Insulation Association has an Android smartphone app that makes it a lot easier. Based on the Financial Returns/Considerations Simple Calculator in the Mechanical Insulation Design Guide (MIDG), the app can be used for an overall project or a small investment such as insulating a valve or replacing a section of insulation.
The app is available for Android phone users in the Android Market on Google Play. You just search for “mechanical insulation,” download it, and then use the free tool to find out how quickly mechanical insulation can pay for itself in a building or facility and discover how much energy, money, and greenhouse gas emissions can saved and what the return on investment will be.
