ThermaXX Jackets was asked for expert insulation advice concerning a barbecue that was placed too close, in the customer’s opinion, to the exterior side of the RV for safe operation of the BBQ. BBQ’s can reach temperatures of 400°F and above, which, when placed too close to a fiberglass surface could cause serious problems. The biggest worry was not fire, although that was a consideration. The main worry was discoloration of the exterior portion of the RV directly behind the BBQ. Additionally the BBQ itself did not come with any kind of a weather cover. Our customer was concerned that if the BBQ was left outside that over time the BBQ components would seriously deteriorate!

Unfortunately , many homes throughout the US do not have a basement. This presents a problem, the well pressure tank must now be in a structure near the well in an exterior “storage closet,” located in the garage or simply out in the open. All locations being subject to cold weather. Read more
These days, saving energy is an important consideration for most facilities. Because of this, more and more steam trap surveys are being done every year. This allows customers to analyze some major issues with their systems, and also gives them the opportunity to make any necessary changes. A survey also results in significant energy savings, which is always a win…
