Consumerization is having a huge effect on the appliance industry. As people become accustomed to instant, on-demand access to information, shopping, and entertainment, they are starting to demand the same in other aspects of life. As a result, appliance manufacturers are being driven to develop appliances that operate more quickly and effectively, without having an adverse effect on energy efficiency. Insulation is key to striking this balance, but with so many different insulation materials available on the market, it can be difficult to know the right questions to ask to find the best solution for each individual application. By considering some of the below points during the design stage, greater energy efficiency, safety, and quality can be enjoyed.
For a manufacturer, this is perhaps the most important attribute of any appliance, and the right insulation will maximize any efficiencies that can be made with a product. Get the insulation choice wrong however, and this could have an adverse effect.
