Certified Insulation Energy Appraisers

On August 18 and 19, 2015, Gribbins Insulation hosted an Insulation Energy Appraisal Program (IEAP) training course at its headquarters in Evansville, Indiana, for the benefit of the Gribbins estimating team.  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.  After passing the exam, the following Gribbins estimators can now boast of their status as Certified Insulation Energy Appraisers:IEAP2

  • Adam Brown
  • Richard Daugherty
  • Billy Everette
  • Jake Gribbins
  • Ryan Henderson
  • Joel Smith
  • JD Smothers
  • Ed Williams

Brian Willett, Mark Gribbins, and Kyle Forrester earned their certifications in previous years.

As certified appraisers, these Gribbins estimators can offer our clients certified insulation energy appraisals to determine possible insulation improvements and their value.  More information is available here.

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.IEAP3

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.
