4 Best Insulation Installation Choices for Commercial Buildings
The proper insulation can improve comfort and energy efficiency in commercial buildings. This allows businesses to keep employees and visitors happy while meeting building code requirements and saving money on utilities. The best materials to use can vary based on the type of building and its features, but here are some top options for commercial insulation installation.
What Is the Best Insulation for a Commercial Building?
1. Fiberglass Batting
Fiberglass batts are rolls made of glass and sand spun into soft fibers that are installed over attic ceilings or walls. Air gets trapped between tiny gaps in the fibers, preventing heat from escaping. The material is economical, making it ideal for large commercial spaces.
2. Loose Fill
Loose-fill insulation is also made of fiberglass. In this case, it is cut into small pieces that are then blown into an area using pressurized air. This option is ideal for awkward corners or tiny spaces that are difficult to reach with rolls of batting. Fortunately, it performs about as well as its counterpart.
3. Spray Foam
Spray foam insulation is applied as a liquid, which then hardens when exposed to air. This process creates an air-tight barrier, which is especially useful when used over small gaps around commercial windows, doors, or rooflines. It is also water-resistant, preventing businesses from experiencing potentially costly water damage or exposing employees and visitors to mold.
4. Fiberglass Boards
Fiberglass boards are made of similar materials to those used in batting and loose-fill insulation. However, they are mixed with resin to form a rigid board. This type of insulation isn’t as easy to install around specific surfaces, but it can be cut and shaped as needed. It is most common in insulating commercial HVAC ductwork or sheds or warehouses.
