A crucial part of the efficiency investment calculation for business is the payback period: any but the most minor of efficiency actions will carry some upfront costs which must be repaid by savings if the effort is to be viable. Like any investment, efficiency actions must offer attractive returns or they risk being spurned in favour of better options. Businesses often have little tolerance for investments that payback over the longer term.


Paybacks can often be improved with partial funding through government assistance. We would suggest contacting your local government agency to discuss grants that may be beneficial to your type of business.

With the continued increase in energy prices Insulock has undertaken several projects that have resulted in paybacks of well under 1 year through the supply of pipe insulation, removable Thermocovers and wine tank insulation.
