Commercial insulation for a new or existing building does several things for your business. The most obvious is that it saves your company money over the long term by lowering utility bills. However, the advantages go beyond just saving money due to better temperature control. Valley Insulation explains several advantages of commercial insulation for your building.
The thermal performance of commercial insulation maximizes your R-value per dollar you invest. Not only must you install the correct thickness of insulation to achieve the right amount of R-value, but you need to seal air from every part of your facility for the insulation to achieve maximum effectiveness. Your calculations must take into account the settling of materials, air infiltration, R-value per inch of thickness, and the cost of the installation to maximize your investment.
Look for commercial insulation with a Class 1 fire rating. This makes your facility more resistant to the spread of fire, should an unfortunate fire break out. Insurance companies may take a look at the type of insulation in the structure when determining how much you pay for business insurance that covers your facility. If you point out to your insurance carrier that you have the highest fire rating available, you might see lower insurance premiums. You can also say that your building is up to the proper codes.
Commercial insulation reduces sound transmission within your building. This lets your employees enjoy a more relaxed and peaceful atmosphere without any echoes of noise or any sounds coming from other rooms. Insulation is an easy way to add sound control measures without altering the structure of your building if you have existing construction.
