Insulating your home is extremely important, no one can argue with that. But if you’re a building owner or commercial property manager, insulation is just as significant! To maximize the energy efficiency, comfort and value of any building, it needs to be properly insulated.
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 (hint: most do)!
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):
- Mixed use developments: Mixed-use dwellings combine residential, commercial, cultural, institutional or industrial uses—common examples include apartments or condos located above retail stores and other shops. Insulation for energy efficiency and soundproofing is important.
- 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:
- Schools and universities
- Shopping centers and strip malls
- And more
