Certified Insulation Energy Appraisers

October 5th, 2015

On August 18 and 19, 2015, Calvin Brasel, Randy Sanders, and John Staalenburg participated in an Insulation Energy Appraisal Program (IEAP) training course.  The 2-day accredited IEAP course teaches students how to review mechanical system specifics and use the latest 3E Plus software to determine the optimal insulation thickness and corresponding energy and dollar savings for a project.  Brasel, Sanders, and Staalenburg all passed the accompanying exam, and can now boast of their status as Certified Insulation Energy Appraisers.

As certified appraisers, Brasel, Sanders, and Staalenburg can offer our clients certified insulation energy appraisals to determine possible insulation improvements and their value.

The Energy Appraisal Process:
1. An energy appraisal first involves an onsite facility walk-through.  The appraiser will gather data on the insulated and uninsulated piping, ductwork, and equipment. The customer can determine the extent of the audit – the entire facility or maybe just the boiler room.

2. Back at the office, the analysis process begins. Using 3e Plus software, the appraiser will determine actual Btu losses and greenhouse gas emission levels for each system and piece of equipment.

3. An extensive final report will provide recommendations based on the results, as well as potential cost savings through effective mechanical insulation. The report will provide exact payback times and return on investment (ROI) for each system.

4. The most important step is taking advantage of the potential cost and energy savings, and moving forward with the installation of the insulation.
