The service life of steel structure buildings is more than 50 years. The roof and wall panels of prefabricated steel…
Steel structure buildings have become a modern choice, and most business owners who build new factories have chosen steel structure buildings. Of course, they hope the new type of structure can improve energy efficiency and save them energy costs. Here we introduce some solution to save the energy cost of steel buildings
How to reduce the energy cost of steel buildings?
Thermal insulation reduces the energy cost of steel buildings
Various energy-saving technologies are used to construct the best building envelope. Maximize the building’s thermal insulation performance and airtightness, and minimize the building’s heating and cooling requirements. Choosing suitable thermal insulation materials for your steel structure buildings can achieve the effect of warming in winter and cool in summer, which will reduce the pressure on your heating and cooling system and reduce the building’s energy consumption. This is the basic and the most important strategy to reduce the energy cost of steel buildings. If the temperature is too high, negative pressure fans, cooling water curtains, and super large ceiling fans can be used to cool the plant’s interior.
Lighting and ventilation
Through various passive building methods, such as natural ventilation, natural lighting, solar radiation heat, and other measures, as far as possible to achieve a comfortable indoor thermal and humid environment and lighting environment, to minimize or eliminate the use of active mechanical heating and cooling systems. It can moderately increase the area and number of windows and save lighting energy. If you produce high-heat and smoke-rich products, to achieve smoke exhaust and heat dissipation, it is best to customize the ventilation and smoke-type roof skylights.
Roof color save energy cost of steel buildings
Most heating and cooling losses come from the roof of the metal building. Roof coatings can help save energy in many ways depending on the building’s climate. If your climate is colder, the darker coating will absorb more solar heat. If you are located in a warm climate, the light-colored coating can reflect sunlight, thereby saving cooling costs.
Energy consumption assessment
It is necessary to regularly check whether the plant’s various supporting facilities are at the normal working level. Timely replacement, if damaged, can not only ensure safety but also reduce energy consumption. For example, whether the doors and windows can be closed normally, whether the ventilators work abnormally, etc. You can also invite a professional energy assessment team to conduct an assessment. Although it may cost some money, energy savings may reduce your costs by thousands of dollars in the long run.
