Insulation controls heat flow and noise while equally preventing condensation. It helps in slowing the movement of the heat and keeps it inside the building, which is a huge perk during winter. During the summer months, it does the opposite – keeping the heat outside.
Insulation can also increase the efficiency and effectiveness of lighting fixtures, depending on where they’re installed. Insulation can even alleviate external noise by absorbing reverberations inside the garden structure!
It’s true that insulated garden buildings, such as our own insulated log cabin, has far potential uses than its uninsulated counterpart. Read on to find out why an insulated garden building can make the crucial difference in your garden, and how insulation can ensure a structure which will last for years to come.
Let’s get started!
Garden Building Insulation Benefits #1: Improved Thermal Regulation
Wooden and metal sheds are highly durable storage solutions. Equally, you can expect an excellent log to have a very long life-span. But it’s also true that severe weather conditions can have a major impact on this longevity. Not to mention that moisture and humidity attract insects and mould who can wreak havoc on garden buildings.
A poorly insulated structure can lead to deterioration, rotting, and rusting. But with an insulated building, heat transfer is reduced, which moderates the effect of the overall temperature across your building.
Allowing air to flow and regulate more efficiently through your shed or cabin with proper insulation can prevent the risk of compromising your building’s structural integrity.
Garden Building Insulation Benefits #3: A Great Defence For Metal Sheds
Another great benefit of owning an insulated garden building is that they’re highly cost-efficient. Meaning, it’s far cheaper to maintain in the long-run.
This is especially true if high-grade timber is used for the construction of your garden building – such as European sourced timber with Tongue & Groove construction. If you purchase our insulated garden building, then we can guarantee you that your insulated structure would last for years to come, while only requiring minimal upkeep.
Garden Building Insulation Benefits #5: Low Maintenance
Before you opt for an insulated garden building, our experts recommend first figuring out how you’re going to utilise the building, and plan/prepare accordingly. This way, you can ensure your structure is put to great use all year round.
If you’re a remote worker and wish to use your existing shed or log cabin as a home office, then the building must be warm enough so that you can comfortably use it during the coldest months of the year. Look for the best types of insulation that can keep you cool in the summertime and warm in the winter.
Your chosen wall thickness will have a significant impact on the insulation value as well. We recommend considering insulation if you have either 44mm or 70mm timber walls, in order to ensure maximum comfort and cosiness all year-round, while keeping energy costs low.
So, when purchasing a garden building such as a log cabin, be sure to keep an eye out for design specifications such as the type of cladding and wall thickness used!
