Insulating farm buildings

Synopsis 

Insulation can achieve efficiency gains of between 20 and 30 per cent in some farm buildings and is integral to the design of modern intensive animal production facilities. Insulation can be applied in roofs, walls and floors and is best incorporated at construction stage due to the cost and difficulty of retrofitting. There is a wide range of potential products that can be effective in agricultural applications. Selection of materials and calculation of return on investment depends on assessing the requirements of the specific building and production system.
