With fuel prices at all-time highs, insulating agricultural buildings is a cost-effective and smart choice. Closed-cell spray foam insulation, like the product we use (Icynene), is a quick and easy retrofit solution for existing agricultural buildings that have little or no insulation. It can be applied in large areas in a fraction of the time it takes to add fiberglass rolls or cellulose. It is a resilient, moisture-proof insulation that will not shrink or lose its strength. It will help to keep the temperature of agricultural buildings consistent and cured condensation that leads to mould growth. It is also vermin resistant which is an important consideration for agriculture where the presence of mice and other rodents could cause issues for livestock or damage produce.
Spray foam helps to keep animal housing temperatures moderate and consistent, which can increase production of dairy cattle and other livestock as the animals are more comfortable and less stressed. It can also protect buildings from the blazing summer sun and reduce or eliminate the need for costly air conditioning.
Another significant benefit of agricultural spray foam insulation is extending the life of harvested food products. By regulating the temperature and preventing moisture, it can extend the lifespan of grain, vegetables, and other foods stored in agricultural structures.
Agricultural spray foam insulation is also an ideal solution for cold storage facilities where the temperature needs to be kept below freezing point in order to preserve the quality of the product. It is the same insulation that is used in every walk-in cooler and freezer in the world, proving its superiority as an effective and energy-efficient solution.
