The Importance of Proper Insulation in Coolrooms

06 January 2020

Businesses engaged in stocking food, chemicals, and other things use coolrooms for storage purposes. In restaurants, they use a coolroom to store whatever food that they will be using during their operating hours. Other businesses, however, use coolrooms to keep chemicals and other elements away from any type of unauthorised access by ordinary people. 

One component that helps coolrooms maintain their functionality is proper insulation. Insulation stops heat from entering the coolroom, which then maintains the coldness and temperature intended for the room to be functional. This insulation acts as a barrier to cool the environment and block any external factors that affect the temperature situations. With these factors, it is without doubt that having proper insulation is extremely important for coolrooms.

Controls Temperature 

An effective insulation system for your room stops heat from entering your area. Even the air quality is insulated so that the products inside the coolroom are not exposed to harmful germs and bacteria. Proper insulation traps and blocks outside heat and substances just to create a workable cool room at your business. Insulation mechanisms such as doors, heat reflective paints, tiles, and panels are effective in coolrooms.

Prevents Air Leakage

Aside from heat and germs, proper insulation in coolrooms also prevents air leakage. If your coolroom is closed entirely, then your insulation will be greater compared to open rooms. Once a coolroom is opened for a very long time, air leakage follows. The cold or heavy air from the coolrooms will escape, while the condition of the outdoor air will enter your coolroom. Through proper insulation in coolrooms, your products are protected at all costs. 

Eradicates Moisture

Moulding is a common problem in coolrooms since moisture can fill up some parts of the coolrooms like walls and ceilings. When your walls and ceilings become too cold, warmer and moist air from outdoors can get in, which cause water droplets to condense on surfaces. And if the outside becomes too cold, some frosting and ice can also develop inside the coolroom. All these elements will then turn into mould once moisture is deposited inside the cold room ceiling and walls. With proper insulation, your coolroom’s ceiling and walls are all protected by accurate fitting, preventing any moisture from filling them up.

Reduces Utility Expenses

When it comes to coolrooms, they must be functional at all times. Even with just a little amount of electricity outage, all the products inside your coolroom are expected to deteriorate in quality. What makes insulation important in coolrooms is that it conserves a lot of electrical energy and its accompanied expenses. A coolroom that is properly insulated won’t have to deal with room temperature abnormalities. Insulation can help maintain the temperature as determined by the management, preventing your coolroom and other equipment from consuming more energy in fighting heat and other elements. Proper insulation can help your coolrooms function as intended. Without proper insulation, your business may incur some loss in revenue and additional expenses in maintenance and utility bills.
