If you're an energy-conscious (and money-conscious!) person who runs a business from premises that your company owns, chances are you've spent a lot of time thinking about ways to save energy, work green and drive down the cost of your monthly utility bills to boot. There are plenty of options: double-glazed windows, smarter aircon, wall and roof insulation, employee initiatives, automatically triggered lights on a timer...so what are you missing?
So what are they?
Insulated roof panels are exactly what they sound like. Insulated panels that can be installed over or under the roof of a building. They generally contain similar types of insulation to which you'll find in cavity installations, but they're often a great deal more versatile, thanks to the way they're made. They come in a few different types, so it's worth doing a bit of research before you buy to figure out which sort is best for your property.
What benefits do they confer?
Keeping your building properly insulated is a vital part of keeping costs down, and roof insulation has been shown to have a beneficial effect on the heating bills of pretty much any building it's used on. You won't only feel the benefit in the cooler months, though! Even during summer and in very hot areas, good insulation can help you to keep cool as well as warm--meaning that you can make tracks into your aircon bill as well.
Of course, it's not just money you'll save! Running a cleaner, greener business is a great way to empower your employees, and better insulation is a great place to begin.
So why choose panels?
There are several reasons to consider choosing insulated roof panels over traditional cavity insulation if you're looking to insulate your business premises. For one thing, if you're renting, some types will be possible within the terms of some leases: as these panels can be installed on existing roof structures, they can sometimes be easily removed. They're also often more affordable as the work is non-invasive, and their versatility means that they can be used in even the most oddly-shaped of spaces.
If you think these panels might be a good choice for your business, find a contractor today--look for a local service with the know-how to get it all right for you first time! Good installation is key for getting the most out of these panels, so always go with a company who receive good reviews.Share
