Energy Efficiency in Insulation Systems

Let’s look into the industrial and commercial insulation realm. The goal of insulation is to keep the heat in the system as long as possible—or at least until it’s delivered to its useful destination. Insulation’s effectiveness is tied in good portion to its efficiency, which requires that all material be installed correctly. Once it is in place, the efficiency is tied to proper maintenance, managing product aging, and remediation.

One of the tools that can address both sides of these issues is a thermal camera. Imaging insulation for effective and proper installation eliminates efficiency issues up front. Correspondingly, thermal imaging an existing system for wear or damage can help managers make effective remediation or replacement decisions. Our discussion will revolve around both of these processes and the knowledge needed to effectively utilize a thermal camera in these 2 application scenarios.

To measure installation effectiveness, you would have the mechanical contractors put the insulation in place in the proscribed manner. Field conditions sometimes bring about unintentional and maybe intentional inefficiencies—if you have not enlisted an experienced contractor—when installing insulation. It can be difficult and expensive to fix installation issues after the fact, which is why it’s so important to hire skilled mechanical insulation contractors.
