Pole buildings (metal skinned buildings) offer unique challenges for an insulation system. It sweats. It also gets very cold in winter and very hot in summer. These types of buildings also make alot of noice when it rains or hails. Reflective insulation has become a standard component of a total insulation system. It is designed for both new construction and retrofits. Using reflective insulation for either your pole building or home will increase the comfort level inside, protect against condensation and save on energy costs. It can be used as a stand alone or supplemental insulation. While other types of insulation are made to resist or impede the flow of warm air, reflective insulation reflects back radiant (infra-red) energy from the sun so it does not penetrate the building. It can also reflect back radiant heat inside the house so it does not escape. The concept is simple: each unit of radiant heat energy that is reflected away from your pole building in summer and each unit reflected back inside during winter means less operation of your air conditioning and heating systems, less wear and tear on your equipment, and less money you pay in utility costs. During the winter, 50-75% of heat loss through the ceiling and 65-80% of heat loss through walls is radiant. In the summer, up to 93% of heat gain is radiant. If you are depending on R-value (resistance) alone to insulate against heat gain and loss, you are losing half the battle.

You'll find the most popular reflective insulations such as Prodex Total Insulation at www.Insulation4Less.com. Prodex Total insulation reduces or eliminates condensation, provides 19db sound proofing, reflects out 97% of the radiant energy and reflects back toward the inside - either the cool air of an air conditioner or warmth generated by a heater. There is no better insulation for a pole building.
