How Commercial Awnings Are Energy Efficient

How Commercial Awnings Are Energy Efficient

By installing an awning, you’re changing the landscape for how your building heats and cools. It’s a simple addition that will help you save long-term.

For any business, cutting costs in an efficient manner is always prioritized. If you can find ways to save on smaller things, it can help you spend on more important features. In the case we’re going to present to you, it’s the idea of spending to save in the future. A wise way to reduce the amount you spend on energy would be by investing in a commercial awning. By installing an awning, you’re changing the landscape for how your building heats and cools. It’s a simple addition that will help you save long-term.

Heat Gain Is Reduced

While you may have air conditioning in the building, the hottest days will still make their presence felt. When the temperatures are extremely high, the heat will break through the windows, making the interior (your office) hotter than usual. This solar heat gain minimizes any impact an air conditioner would produce. The addition of an awning will quickly cut back on heat gain, giving you more efficiency and less worry.

Radiation

At the same time, if the weather is cooler, you can also invest in a retractable awning. While some days the sun may shine through, other days will bring bitter cold. On these days, a retractable awning gives you the option of allowing the heat to come through (when the sun is shining but the air is cold). Clearly, this is a necessary option for the winter time when the temperatures dip below freezing.

Awning vs. Tinting

In many cases, consumers will prefer solar tinting to cure their problems. While a great resource, it’s not always effective. If that’s the case, you should look into an awning. You could take it one step further by installing the awning in addition to tinting. This would give you the best of both worlds, and you’d easily reduce the amount of costs and heat gain.
