What Happens to Unrepaired Leaks?
Unrepaired air leaks, gaps, or cracks in your commercial insulation can be costing you—literally. Multiple tears in insulation cause your HVAC system to function inefficiently, leaking air conditioned or hot air into your Atlanta-based building and causing uncomfortable drafts. If there are hot water pipes running through the insulated space, leaks can result in an accumulation of cold air and lead to pockets of moisture and condensation, leaving your building vulnerable to a mold or mildew infestation to which Atlanta is especially prone. A great way to avoid problems like these from spiraling beyond repair is to contact the insulation contractors at Action Brothers of Atlanta and schedule routine inspections. If any tears, large or small, are found in your Atlanta building, our team of trained professionals can go in and repair them with minimal impact to the building and little to no disturbance.
Understanding the Type of Existing Insulation is Important
The repairs made on air leaks in your Atlanta commercial insulation will depend on whether the building is equipped with blow-in, batt or spray foam insulation. Pre-existing batt and foam insulation will make for the easiest and most efficient repairs for our Atlanta-based team of insulation contractors. Batted insulation comes in bales of pre-packaged insulate, therefore gaps or tears in this insulation can either be mended with sealant if they’re small enough, re-filled with an appropriate amount of batt material if they’re slightly larger, or in the case of a severe rip, the afflicted batts can easily be replaced without having to remove the rest of the insulation. Blown-in insulation presents a slight challenge as it’s relatively uncontained. If you find that blown insulation isn’t serving your needs, more of the same material can simply be blown into the space with a mechanical blower in the attempt to further insulate it. Don’t let your building go too long without being inspected!
