Insulation helps maintain a comfortable interior temperature by keeping warm air in your building during the winter and conversely by keeping warm air out during the summer months. More importantly, steel building insulation creates a barrier throughout the roof and walls of your building, which prevents condensation.
Proper insulation will limit noise pollution (and unhappy neighbors). Insulation also has the ability to absorb interior sounds that reverberate through the building. Which is especially helpful if you have loud machinery running all day.
Another advantage of insulating a warehouse is that it prevents unwanted critters from entering the property. Insulation has proven to be a major deterrent to rodents and birds. By protecting every crevice of your building you leave little ability for wildlife to encroach.
The building code defines residential construction as one, two or three family dwellings. Broadly speaking everything else is commercial. While the two codes have different requirements for insulation, the principles are exactly the same: a building must be properly air sealed and insulated to be economical to operate and comfortable to occupy. High insulation values mean little if outside air bypasses the insulation. This is true no matter what construction method is used.
