High quality insulation for commercial properties and storefront businesses.
Insulation for Commercial Buildings
Van Island Insulation knows that commercial properties can suffer from similar energy losses as residential structures, but these losses often go unnoticed as increases in energy costs are attributed to other factors.
Garages, crawl spaces, and attics present the same air tightness and sealing challenges to commercial structures and homes. Commercial facilities often have fewer insulation layers than homes, making them more vulnerable to energy losses.
Insulation is an essential factor in the comfort and safety of commercial properties. It protects supplies and inventory and helps maintain a consistent temperature, reducing the risk of damage to business operations. Additionally, fire-retardant insulation can provide structural integrity and fire protection without incurring enormous costs.
Commercial clients can benefit from various insulation materials, each with unique advantages and risks. In this article, we will provide an overview of fiberglass insulation, mineral wool insulation, spray foam insulation, and cellulose insulation, including each material’s health and environmental impacts, fire protection, and sustainability.
Sustainable Commercial Insulation
Insulation made of fiberglass and mineral wool is an environmentally responsible choice because they both contain recycled materials and may be reused once their initial purpose has been fulfilled. They do not release potent greenhouse gases, unlike materials based on chemicals, such as spray foam.
