Grando Energy

International Asbestos Removal, Inc. completed the National Insulation Energy Appraisal Program in Washington DC. This program certified Grando Energy to perform energy appraisals. Many existing insulation systems have inadequate thickness and are improperly maintained. An appraisal will show the energy savings available and the associated reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

Insulation is the most effective technology available today that allows energy managers to conserve energy, save money and preserve the environment. Many people fail to realize that a properly selected, specified, installed and maintained thermal insulation system is an excellent investment with high returns. The payback for this is very quick, usually your costs are recouped in six months.

Grando Energy would like the opportunity to meet with you and perhaps do a small appraisal and show you what we can do. The appraisal consists of two parts: an interview to determine the scope of the appraisal and the issues most important to you and your facility and an on-site walk-through of your facility to measure pipes; ducts and vessels, both insulated and uninsulated.
