Why You Should Replace Your Commercial Windows
Replacing the windows in your commercial building can garner quite a few benefits, and some might come as a surprise to you. You don't have to wait until they're broken to take the opportunity to help your property “go green”, save money, and attract more renters.
By installing energy-efficient windows, you'll save money on your utility bill. Owning a "green" building will earn you points with prospective renters as well as the tenants you currently have. Consider commercial window replacement if you'd like to:
- Improve asset value
- Reduce operating costs
- Reduce turnover rates
- Increase tenant comfort
Charge higher rents as the demand for space in your "green" building skyrocket. Increase your occupancy rates and watch your turnover rates go down. Let's look at more ways commercial window replacement can benefit you.
Old Windows, Old Technology
Most of us don't want out-of-date technology in any aspect of our lives these days. It's time to replace your commercial window if you notice condensation forming or any type of damage to the window or frame. Technologically enhanced, modern windows offer better energy efficiency and improved strength.
Window performance has been revolutionized. Did we mention they look great and are more secure? Some of the new features in glass include improved barriers by double and triple glazing the glass, UV coating and tints. Older aluminum frames have no thermal break, which leads to heat loss transfer through the frame as they are directly connected to the exterior. New technology has a thermal break which adds energy efficiency, in addition to resolving condensation issues.
