Caulk and weatherstrip your facility’s walls, floors, windows, roof, and doors. Seal air leaks and insulate water heaters and pipes in unconditioned areas.

Insulated ceilings and walls make it possible to control the indoor climate regardless of the outdoor climate. Special products are available to stop condensation on the ceiling.

The ceiling is cold because of the radiant heat transfer between the ice and the ceiling (i.e. the ice cools down the inner surface of the ceiling.) Though there are technical solutions to minimize the indoor rain problem (low emissive coatings) the ceiling is still subjected to weather conditions and high running costs.
