Metal buildings are often used for housing livestock, protecting agricultural equipment and performing other industrial tasks. With summer (and even warmer temperatures) upon us, you might be wondering: “Should I insulate my metal building?”
The short answer to this question is yes. Insulation offers many benefits for metal buildings in addition to maximized energy efficiency and lower costs. Correctly installed metal building insulation can help:
- Control moisture: Fluctuating temperatures and dropping dew points cause condensation to form on cool metal surfaces. For a building made entirely of metal, the result on cool mornings is often a damp interior as water condenses on the ceiling and drips to the ground. Insulation helps prevent this scenario from occurring.
- Reduce heat transfer: A metal building is much warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer when insulation helps reduce the metal’s heat transfer ability. Enjoy a more comfortable interior year round by insulating your metal building. If valuable contents are inside, it also helps with their preservation and integrity.
- Provide soundproofing: Noises within your metal building echo noisily as the hard walls and ceiling reverberate sound in all directions. Insulation helps absorb sounds created within the building while muting loud noises from outside as well, such as rain and hail on the roof. An insulated metal building is a quieter, more comfortable place for animals and workers to be.
- Prevent rodent and bird nesting: Metal buildings have exposed beams and rafters that birds and rodents find very appealing for their nests. By filling in crevices with insulation, you can help deter these pests from making your building their new home.
