Pipe, Duct & Tank Insulation
As a pipe insulation company servicing the states of Rhode Island ( RI ), Massachusetts ( MA ), and Connecticut ( CT ), Anchor knows how important insulation is to most thermal systems. It is used to prevent heat loss and gain from pipes. By preventing this loss and gain to the temperature in the pipes, it saves energy and improves effectiveness of the thermal systems.
In addition to reducing costs and environmental impacts of energy consumption, the benefits include:
- Reducing or eliminating condensation on cold pipes
- Protection from dangerous pipe temperatures
- Reduced wait time for hot water
- Control of noise
- Reduction of unwanted heat gain to air-conditioned spaces
As a duct insulation company with offices in Rhode Island ( RI ), Massachusetts ( MA ), and Connecticut ( CT ), Anchor will help you conserve energy costs by insulating your duct work.
Uninsulated or poorly insulated ducts in unconditioned spaces can lose 10%-30% of the energy used to heat and cool the space through conduction. Heating and cooling equipment then has to compensate for the heat loss and gain by conditioning additional air, which in turn raises energy bills. In addition, when ducts lose heat through conduction, rooms served by long duct runs can experience cold blow during the winter because they usually have lower heating-supply temperatures.
Ducts in conditioned spaces experience minimal conductive losses and gains since they are exposed to indoor air temperatures. However, these ducts may also require some insulation to prevent condensation on duct walls and to ensure that conditioned air is delivered at the desired temperature.
You can greatly improve both the thermal and acoustic performance of your existing metal ducts by wrapping them with duct insulation (also known as duct wrap). When properly wrapped and sealed with the recommended tape, your ducts will deliver air at a consistent temperature from room to room and save energy by reducing the energy lost from bare metal surfaces.
Choosing to insulate your ducts is a great option. The energy prices on the rise by insulating your ducts in the end it will save you money. It will also put less strain on your heating and cooling systems meaning the machines will not have to work as hard to heat and cool a room.
