In commercial and residential settings, mechanical insulation should be used for several reasons.
Not only can insulating a building help regulate the temperature and humidity, it can also protect the structure from mold.
While regular insulation should be used inside walls, mechanical insulation should be properly fitted around pipes and other equipment in order to stop energy loss and prevent condensation buildup and other potential issues.
When condensation occurs on pipes and other equipment, it can lead to mold and bacteria growth, which will then create an unsafe work or living environment.
Property maintenance managers and building owners can help save money on energy costs by having mechanical insulation installed or properly maintained.
The Mechanical Insulators Labor Management Cooperative Trust (LMCT) invites you to download and read these audits and reports, which were performed on other commercial and residential structures, and discover the type of energy and cost savings are awaiting you for your office and residential buildings.
