According to an article in the NIA’s (National Insulation Association’s) “Insulation Outlook®” magazine, an average tree absorbs 50 lbs. of CO 2 per year which is equivalent to about 305 BTU/yr. when using heating oil as a fuel source.
Over a hundred-year lifespan, that’s 5,000 lbs. of CO 2 ( the weight of a heavy car! )
Even so, a small industrial tank 30ft diameter X 20ft tall, subject to a mere 10-degree F temperature difference and insulated with 1inch of R6 polyisocyanurate insulation will save 388 BTU/yr.
For a 20-degree F difference, the insulation saves 776 BTU/yr. More than twice the greenness of a tree!
Of all the technology at our disposal, insulation is the most cost-effective tool we have for saving energy and reducing our carbon impact on the environment.
Few energy related technologies can come close to the rapid R.O.I. offered by insulation.
According to the NIA: “A properly designed, specified, installed, and maintained insulation system is an investment with high and rapid returns – paybacks are often less than 6 months.”
