The monthly heating and cooling bills for a commercial business can be a major expense. During the hot summer months, the cost for keeping a large open space cool can be exorbitant. Keeping customers comfortable is important because otherwise, they may not want to frequent your business. However, the cost of utilities comes directly off your bottom line. There is a way to decrease your monthly electric bill without breaking the bank. One of the easiest ways to increase the insulation in your building is to upgrade to energy-efficient windows. Division 9 Commercial Construction can quickly install energy-efficient windows to your commercial building with minimal disruptions to your business operations.
What are Energy Efficient Windows?
Energy-efficient windows are either double or triple-paned units that prevent air from creeping in or out. The HVAC system will not have to work as hard to cool the building down when there is less air exchange through the windows. Businesses tend to have large, open window displays at the front of the store. These large windows could be causing you to lose large amounts of air conditioning or heat to the outside.
How do Energy Efficient Windows Work?
Energy-efficient windows usually have the following properties that make them exceptional at sealing in air conditioning or heat:
- Airtight sealing
- Reflective glass coating
- Insulating gas between the window panes
- Choice of double or triple-paned
How Much Money can Energy Efficient Windows Save?
It is estimated that on average you can save 50% on your energy bill by replacing your old windows with energy-efficient models. Although the cost of replacing windows on a commercial building comes with a high upfront cost, you will notice the savings immediately on your next energy bill.
