Which commercial insulation option is right for your building?

Posted on: 30 September 2019


When you manage any commercial property, one issue that you will need to carefully consider is the value of appropriate commercial insulation. Without proper insulation, it becomes difficult to correctly regulate the building temperature because the lack of insulation leads to energy transfer through the ceiling and walls. When this happens, the building quickly becomes too hot or too cold for your employees to comfortably work in. Energy bills begin to climb ever higher as your heating or air-conditioning seeks to respond to changing outside temperatures. In this situation, productivity will suffer and your business will begin to see costs rise sharply.

Fitting commercial insulation

Instead of worrying about a lack of insulation, why not look for a company that can fit exactly the commercial insulation you need? There is a range of commercial insulation products that you could choose for your commercial building. If you are not sure which would be best for your particular situation, speaking to an insulation installation company is your best option. They will have plenty of experience of working in buildings just like yours and will be able to suggest the perfect product for your situation. Commercial insulation products you might like to consider include the following.

Spray foam insulation

Spray foam insulation is a great modern alternative to more traditional types of insulation. Quick to install and effective both for insulation and soundproofing, spray foam insulation is a popular choice for maintaining the ideal temperature within your building.

Cavity wall insulation

When planning to get new insulation, you can't ignore your walls. Choosing a good cavity wall insulation material can mean providing 100% fill of the wall cavity without any wastage of insulation materials and ensuring that less energy is transferred through the walls of your property.

Fibre insulation

Fibre is the most traditional method of residential and commercial insulation. Fibre insulation is generally available in fibreglass or rock wool batts in a variety of thicknesses and pre-cut sizes. A qualified installer will be able to explain the advantages and disadvantages of each type of fibre insulation and tell you which option is most suitable for your situation.

Insulation board

If you want to insulate a flat roof, one of the most practical options may be insulation board. Insulation boards can be rapidly fitted across a flat roof, helping not just to provide better insulation but also providing greater fire-resistance in the property.
