Keeping Commercial Metal Buildings Cool and Comfortable
As time goes by, the way buildings are built and insulated is constantly evolving. Building codes are reevaluated and updated to create safer and more comfortable buildings. Insulation in metal buildings has become more of a priority and less of an afterthought in recent years. But with large metal buildings, people often do not consider the many benefits of properly insulating such a large space.
When many people think of a large metal building, they picture a large space with inconsistent temperatures, especially during a hot Florida summer. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
The Benefits of Insulating a Metal Building
Installing the proper type of insulation in your building provides a host of benefits:
Improved Interior Temperatures
Proper insulation will help keep your metal building from losing or gaining too much heat, maintaining a comfortable indoor climate throughout the year.
Increased Sound Absorption
Extra interior padding reduces the echo from noises on non-insulated metal walls and ceilings, improving sound quality within and throughout the workspace.
One of insulation’s main goals in metal buildings is to create a thermal barrier which can help reduce condensation, important in humid locations like Florida.
Lower Energy Bills
Improved insulation in your metal building can help lower energy bills, saving your business valuable dollars.
Update Your Space with Metal Building Retrofit Insulation
At Leed Insulation, we specialize in metal building insulation, especially retrofit insulation. Our insulation experts use a specialized process for installing our vinyl-faced fiberglass insulation. White vinyl-coated wire with clips is used to install the fiberglass batts tight to the deck, ensuring there is no air space between the roof deck and the product. Since gaps trap moisture, this is the perfect method to help manage interior moisture. It can be completed with up to an R-30 batt for extra insulating power and leaves the building’s purlins open for future access. Plus, it looks spectacular with a finish that is white, bright, and pillowed.
