Why Insulate?

Insulation should be part of your company’s energy efficiency plan and here’s just some of the reasons why:

Saves Energy

It has been estimated that between 10% and 30% of all installed insulation is now missing or damaged, means that by not maintaining and replacing your insulation system you are not receiving the full benefits of your insulation. In many cases, significant issues develop, such as large amounts of energy loss, corrosion under insulation, mold growth, increased cost of operations, and reduced process productivity in commercial buildings.

Energy is often the most costly component in managing a building or manufacturing facility and its processes, one that can often hit the hardest for many organisations. If you reduce your energy consumption you are in turn reducing costs, and this is the primary objective for most companies.

It has been estimated that a building’s initial construction cost represents only 20% to 30% of the building’s entire cost over its 40 year (estimated) life span. A reduction in energy consumption means less fossil fuel is burned to produce energy and this means less greenhouse gases emitted, ensuring your carbon footprint is as small as possible. Therefore reducing energy and emissions is a great win-win scenario for the organisation

Did you know that insulation also plays a key role in fire safety through fire stopping, which seals wall penetrations and prevents fire, gases, and smoke from travelling from one room to another!

A Healthier Work Environment

Study after study has proven that improved indoor air quality increases occupants’ productivity and efficiency. Improved air quality and sound attenuation can both benefit an occupant’s health, productivity, and overall job satisfaction. So not only can insulation save your organisation money, reduce your carbon footprint, protect your staff from fire, increase air quality and sound retention but it also saves you money year after year!
