Insulators/Insulation Workers


Employment for insulation workers-mechanical is expected to grow by 9 percent through 2028 (faster than the average for all careers), according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). The DOL reports that "overall opportunities for mechanical insulators should be very good as new construction opportunities continue to grow, as the increased focus on maintenance and retrofitting continues, and as government and private business strive for more energy efficiency." The National Insulation Association estimates that "maintenance of insulation at industrial facilities alone can generate more than $3.6 billion in energy savings per year, and reduce 83 billion pounds of carbon dioxide."
