Efficiency Thy Name Is Glass

The windows to a building are meant to let light in. This is helpful to the building in many ways. It helps to open  up space and make your building look more inviting. Furthermore, natural light can help to reduce the need for artificial light, which can help to keep your costs lower. Even though windows can be helpful, they can also cause problems. Windows let in UV rays and sometimes cold air, which can heat up your building, create more work for your AC unit, and cost you more money. Taking steps to upgrade your glass can help to keep your costs lower. 

Check for Leaky Seals

If you have double-pane windows with condensation on the inside of your window, then you have a leaky seal. Leaky seals do not just allow water vapor into your windows; they can also allow cold or hot air to seep through into your home. The more cold or hot air that seeps into your building, the harder your HVAC system has to work, and the more you have to pay to keep your home comfortable. If you have windows with leaky seals, then you need to either replace the seal or the window.

Window Film Will Keep the UV Rays out

UV rays can easily bypass the glass in your windows. As mentioned before, UV rays can really wreak havoc on your HVAC system. To keep UV rays out of your business, you need to repel them before they have a chance to enter. You can do that by installing window film. A good bit of window film can repel up to 99% of the sun's UV rays. They can also help to reflect 79% of solar heat. By keeping heat out of your building, window film will help to keep your business cooler, which will help to keep your AC bills down. 

When you run a business, you have to do everything that you can to reduce your expenditures and maximize your profits. Windows can allow heat from the sun to seep into your business, which can cause money to seep out of your budget. Installing window film on your windows represents an extra cost, but you can make up the cost with the amount of money you save on your cooling bills. Sometimes you have to spend money to save money, and when it comes to reducing AC costs for commercial glass, this is definitely the case.
