Understanding Construction Costs

2 Benefits Of Installing New Windows In Your Commercial Building

Your commercial windows are more than just places to look outside; they help you control the costs of operating a commercial building. That is why installing better windows can have a big impact on your commercial windows. Installing new, higher quality commercial windows can offer your office space some real benefits.

#1 Reduce Your Energy Costs

Investing in new windows will allow you to reduce the amount of money you spend on energy costs. Outside of taking care of your HVAC system, your windows play the next largest role in reducing your energy costs.

When you have inefficient windows in your business, they can really impact your bottom line. In the winter, they can allow drafts to get into your office, either through broken seals or directly through the window itself. This can cause you to have to expend more heat to warm up the place. In the summer, windows that have low emissivity ratings will allow too much heat to pass through the windows, essentially turning your office into a hot box that requires extensive AC in order to cool off.

Your windows can really run up your HVAC costs throughout the year. Installing more efficient windows can help you lower your energy costs and stress out your HVAC system less.

#2 Reduce HVAC Maintenance Costs

When your windows are not working effectively, they require your HVAC system to work harder as well. In the winter, your HVAC system will have to run harder to keep the building warm and in the summer, your HVAC system will have to work harder to keep things cool. All of this results in unnecessary stress on your HVAC system, which means that the parts on your HVAC system are going to get worn out at a faster rate, which in turn will increase how quickly you have to replace parts on your HVAC system and the amount of money you will have to spend taking care of your HVAC system.

Putting in new windows can also reduce the money you spend taking care of your windows. If you are having to reseal around your windows or repair leaks around your windows every year, the labor and material costs can start to add up.

Changing out and putting in new windows in your commercial building is a great way to get control of your buildings energy and maintenance costs. Consult with a glass installer today to come up with a plan for the commercial glass job in your office space.
