Windows are often not high on a list of considerations for business owners, but when commercial windows start to fail they can cost you a significant amount of money in the long run. Replacing commercial windows – in office, hotel, retail, school, hospital buildings – can reduce overhead in a few surprising ways. Acme Glass points out that window replacement can:
• Reduce heating and cooling costs
• Lower maintenance and repair costs
• Reduce vacancy rates and increase occupant comfort
Reduce Heating and Cooling Costs
Commercial window replacement can lower energy costs by improving the efficiency of your building. Replacing commercial windows with an energy-efficient option using glazing layers, the right fill and low-e glass can all sharply cut down on the amount of heat let in through windows.
Lower Maintenance and Repair Costs
If your existing commercial windows require frequent maintenance, that may be a sign that the windows need to be replaced. Older windows will naturally require more attention as they deteriorate, both maintenance expenses and costs to source outdated parts will accumulate. A commercial window replacement with newer windows will cost less over the long term than using ineffective windows.
Reduce Vacancy Rates and Increase Occupant Comfort
No one wants to sit in a drafty, cold or extremely hot, humid building all day. Thermal comfort is a huge selling point for both tenant and business buildings. Increased thermal comfort from smart window design means occupants are more likely to become long term leaseholders.
