When many people think of insulation, they picture the attic of a home. While the residential market is significant, insulating commercial buildings is also important. Installing insulation in buildings can help maximize comfort and energy efficiency, which anyone can appreciate—from office managers to commercial property owners.
Do you think you should insulate your building but aren’t sure? Keep reading to learn more about what types of commercial buildings need insulation!
Types of Commercial Insulation
Essentially, all buildings should be insulated. But to give you a general idea, the following commercial structures are some of the most popular ones to insulate (they are often metal buildings):
- Barns and other agricultural buildings: Today’s farming processes require efficient buildings where temperature and humidity can be controlled. The right amount of insulation can help with this. From the almond farms that populate the Sacramento area to orchard sheds, cattle barns and more, the agricultural industry is a major source of commercial insulation.
- Warehouses: Warehouses, distribution centers and other industrial buildings are nearly always insulated for better thermal efficiency, soundproofing and more. These metal structures often require vinyl insulation (which is used for many commercial applications).
- Offices: The corporate environment also requires insulation installation. Insulation installed in office walls and ceilings helps keep overhead costs down, improve overall energy efficiency and reduce noises from outside (especially helpful if the office is in a heavily populated or loud, high-traffic area) and between different rooms and levels inside.
Other buildings that should be insulated include:
- Retail centers and stores
- And more
