Designing a new commercial building is a complex undertaking and one that involves making many important decisions. One of the most important design decisions you will need to make is what type of insulation to use. Our team at AppleBlossom Energy has extensive experience in installing commercial insulation, and in this article, we will go over a few tips on how to choose the best option for your needs.
- Consider R-Values. One thing you should consider when choosing commercial insulation is the R-values of each available option. R-value is a measure of a material’s resistance to heat flow—the higher the R-value, the more insulation power the material provides.
- Budget. Another thing to consider when choosing commercial insulation options is your budget for the project. Some insulation options are more expensive than others, and you will need to weigh the material’s insulating power against its cost. In our experience, though, it’s worth it to invest in high-quality insulation, as doing so will lower your new building’s energy costs and save you money in the long run.
- Environmental Impact. A third thing that we encourage you to consider when picking out commercial insulation is the sustainability and environmental impact of the material. While investing in effective insulation will reduce your building’s energy consumption in the long run, it’s important to keep in mind that some insulation products are not manufactured in an environmentally friendly way. Our team offers insulation options that are made of sustainable, green materials and that offer great insulating power.
