Commercial building window retrofit services for your older building will improve its aesthetics and energy efficiency. Window retrofit services offer better ROI than a complete window replacement.
Commercial Building Window Retrofit Services Explained
Any commercial building built before 1990 probably had single pane windows installed during construction. Single pane windows are a major source of energy loss for your commercial building. Installing a modern window retrofit system will substantially improve your building’s overall energy efficiency. More energy efficient windows make your building more attractive to tenants thanks to lower operating costs and an increase in overall comfort. The window retrofit system developed by Inovues is considerably more cost effective and less intrusive than a full commercial window replacement job. It involves installing a second window system on top of the existing system. There is no construction debris, no costly demolition or rubbish removal, and minimal interruption to normal day to day operations.
Big Savings with Commercial Window Retrofit Services
Upgrading from single pane windows can reduce energy costs between ten and forty percent depending on climate, heating and cooling systems, and the number of windows on the exterior of your building. Lowering your energy costs means a reduction in operating costs which will improve your property’s overall asset value. If your commercial building falls within the average energy costs of about $2-$2.5 per square foot per year, then a 100,000 square foot building can see a saving of up to $100,000. A ten percent reduction, the least amount building owners and managers would see, would mean a $20,000 reduction in operating costs. Replacing or retrofitting your old commercial windows will improve its asset value and increase its potential sale price.
More Reasons for Commercial Building Window Retrofit Services
By eliminating the issues associated with old commercial windows your office building, apartment building, or hotel will be more comfortable. The Inovues retrofit system provides more natural light, more stable temperatures, and less humidity. Commercial building window retrofit services also reduce noise thanks to an increase in soundproofing. Upgrading to a window system that is more energy efficient is also a “green” improvement. Green buildings are generally more valuable than non-green buildings, according to survey data. All these benefits lead to higher occupancy rates and a more valuable property.
The Big Problem with Old Windows
The biggest problem with old windows is poor energy efficiency. Other problems include damage due to wear, weakness due to aging, and condensation. If your windows are showing signs of damage, including dried out seals or damaged caulking, leaks will continue to worsen. Single pane windows are the largest source of energy loss for commercial buildings. Humidity and condensation can make working near windows uncomfortable or even unsafe.
The Inovues window retrofit system is more energy efficient and safer. They also offer features like auto dimming. Upgrading your windows can help with moisture problems and block out damaging UV rays. If your commercial building’s windows are starting to show their age, now is the time to take action.
