Steam pipe insulation, a hot topic or does 5% savings leave you cold?

Steam or hot water is used in many Public Sector facilities such as hospitals and Prisons. Operation of these boilers is energy intensive and can therefore represent a significant proportion of an organisation’s energy costs.
In the UK, boilers account for some 60% of carbon emissions from buildings “Carbon Trust”.
Taking this 60% into consideration it is interesting that a whopping saving of 5% of this energy figure can be achieved simply with the correct insulation with a pay back (ROI) often in months.
