When choosing an insulation product, it’s important to understand that there’s no such thing as a “superior insulator.” According to the Building Sciences Corporation, all types of insulation perform equally well when properly installed and air sealed. Still, there are several factors to consider when comparing insulation types.
Insulation can help you create acoustically sound environments, where building occupants can take advantage of a relaxing, peaceful space—or turn up the volume without disturbing others. Fiber glass and mineral wool insulation give your buildings an edge by achieving a high level of sound control between interior rooms, between ceilings and floors, and from outside sources. Installing fiber glass or mineral wool batts is also an easy way to apply acoustical control to interior walls without changing build practices.
The latest building energy codes are driving greater energy efficiency, which means tighter and better insulated buildings. But a building built just to code is only meeting the legal minimum, not delivering customer value beyond that baseline. Designing and constructing beyond code—including quality commercial building insulation installation—delivers buildings that are more energy efficient, quieter and healthier, which can give you a competitive advantage.
4 Great Reasons to Insulate:
1. Greater energy efficiency, lower energy bills
2. Meeting occupant needs for comfort
3. Acoustic Impact
4. Sustainability and Responsibility
