New Hampshire Energy Codes

From the crowded seacoast to the more rural Lakes Region, New Hampshire metal building owners turn to Steel Building Insulation when looking for a cost-effective method of keeping thermal energy costs low in a changeable climate. Known for its four distinct seasons, the state of New Hampshire sees precipitation year-round and frequent snow fall during long, cold winters, particularly in the northern White Mountain areas, making insulating metal buildings essential for owners in order to keep energy costs down while maintaining usability and comfort.

Steel Building Insulation, a division of Building Outlet Corp., has been a leading insulation company for residents in and around New Hampshire for more than 30 years, offering only the highest quality, name-brand products at prices well below industry standards. By sourcing our insulation panels and related accessories from a variety of different manufacturers, we are able to keep our insulation material costs low, resulting in a multitude of savings for New Hampshire consumers in addition to a variety of benefits for metal building owners.

Constructing a metal building with proper insulation, or repairing existing faulty or damaged insulation, creates a barrier to slow the movement of heated or cooled air. While in years past, installing a high-quality, high-performance insulation system could take as manyyears to pay off, today’s soaring energy costs have considerably shortened that time span, slashing the payback period by as much as two-thirds – a small fraction of the lifetime of the average steel building. In addition to substantial energy savings, insulating metal buildings prevents damaging condensation from forming, offers sound absorption and increases lighting efficiency. Contact us today to see how you can start seeing substantial savings on your metal building ownership before another costly winter comes to pass.
