What is Mechanical Insulation?

Mechanical insulation is the installation of thermal insulation on all types of mechanical systems, including boilers, HVAC systems, ducts, and piping. Proper insulation is required for systems that transfer or store air, gas, liquid, or product in which the temperature of the substance being transferred or stored is directly impacted by the temperature of the surrounding air. It is crucial that these systems are insulated with accuracy and precision in order to maintain process temperatures for both hot and cold systems – to protect liquids from freezing and to provide burn protection from possible exposure to hot systems.

Why bother? 

Mechanical Insulation does more than just insulate.

Save Energy

Mechanical insulation has the ability to maintain temperatures at desired levels, thus decreasing temperature variations and therein increasing energy savings.

Save Money

When installed correctly, mechanical insulation is the only item in a building that starts to pay for itself immediately, saving you money in the long run.

Save the Environment

Mechanical Insulation is able to reduce the production of greenhouse gas emissions by regulating operating temperatures within a building.
