In my time as a Certified Insulation Energy Appraiser, I’ve toured countless different types of facilities and spoken with facility managers all across America. One question I always ask is, “Is management aware of any areas throughout the facility where there is uninsulated and exposed steam piping?”
The response is almost always the same:
“The vast majority is insulated, and we are not looking to insulate further.”
That answer is a big red flag to me.
