What an insulation consultant can do for your business

Running a business comes with enough overhead as it is, you don’t need to add to it by paying unnecessarily-high energy bills or repairing building damage from rot. Hire an insulation consultant to evaluate the insulation at your location to learn how to improve your insulation and run a safer and cleaner business. If you've never considered hiring an insulation consultant, our team at St. Louis Insulation has a few reasons why you should.

Provide recommendations for upgrading insulation

The insulation in the building where you operate your business is essential for maintaining a comfortable work environment, saving on energy bills, and managing your inventory.

While there are many different locations you can run your business, it’s important that you have a properly insulated building. What’s more, each will call for different solutions to proper insulation. For instance, a company that works in an office building can improve its insulation to increase productivity and morale. In contrast, those working in a warehouse will often dress according to the weather because they get exposed to more of the elements than in other jobs. However, it’s likely that the inventory you hold in your warehouse needs to be protected from temperatures outside of a specified range. Insulation can help to maintain the temperature of your facility.

Working with an insulation consultant is a great way to find out how you can upgrade the insulation at your office, store, or any other facility so you can maintain the environment you want.

Measure energy efficiency

If you feel like you’re paying too much for your energy bills, there’s a good chance you are. It’s not uncommon to have small cracks that allow conditioned are to escape from your building. While some air getting out is normal and helps to maintain steady pressure inside, too much air flowing through the cracks can cause your HVAC system to work overtime.

An insulation consultant can evaluate your energy usage and find areas where you can improve your building’s insulation. Whether you need to update what you have, replace it in areas where it’s broken or damaged, or completely overhaul your building with a better solution, you can get the help you need.

Perform thermal imaging

Thermal imaging is a low-impact way to identify whether your HVAC system is evenly distributing air throughout your facility. Your insulation consultant will use a thermal imaging camera to easily find where the air is gathering as well as parts that don’t get enough airflow.

By using thermal imaging as their guide, your consultant will have a boon of information readily available to further examine these parts of your building. It allows them to more easily inspect the insulation in these rooms as well as find where you could be losing bought air. The image offers an accurate point of reference for where your facility has the most trouble with keeping the air in and allowing outside to come in.

Improves air quality

As an employer, losing workers to sick days can be frustrating. You’re typically paying them not to be at work while missing out on productivity. You can decrease the number of sick days your team takes by improving the air quality. Yes, you can install air purifiers and other ways to clean the air. Although, improving your insulation helps by keeping pathogens from the outside world from getting into your facility. Not only will your energy bill drop, but you’ll also see that your employees take fewer sick days as well.
