Connecticut Energy Codes

Are you a Connecticut resident who is tired of losing money due to faulty, deficient or inadequate insulation in your metal buildings? Are you experiencing a rise in energy costs as a result of air leakage or problems resulting from condensation issues? Steel Building Insulation, a division of Building Outlet Corp., is a leading provider of insulation and retrofit insulation for commercial metal buildings, and has assisted Connecticut contractors, architects and do-it-yourselfers in repairing insulation and reducing energy costs across all regions of the state.

Whether your intent is to keep heat in or out, repairing or replacing your structure’s current insulation using Steel Building Insulation’s high-quality, name-brand products will both enhance user comfort and reduce energy costs and investment dollars needed for heating and cooling equipment. Our insulation repair products can reduce moisture in the form of condensation by the application of a thermal break on the roof purlins or wall girts. Fiberglass insulation should be installed against the steel panel without airspace in between, and facings (vapor barriers) should be sealed to help prevent the flow of moisture or warm air to the steel panel.

Despite nationwide soaring energy costs, Steel Building Insulation’s insulation costs and pricing of vinyl insulation repair products has remained consistent, making re-insulating or repairing existing metal building insulation an energy saving, worthwhile investment. Steel Building Insulation’s team can help guarantee that your insulation investment pays for itself in as short a time as possible by helping consumers choose insulation with appropriate R-values for their particular building size and structure.

Connecticut (CT) consumers should note that all commercial structures within state boundaries must adhere to the energy codes and regulations as dictated by the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code with Amendments. If you need assistance in ensuring that your metal or steel building is in compliance with these codes, contact Steel Building Insulation today and speak to a member of our knowledgeable, highly-trained sales team.
