How Commercial Awnings can Lower Your Energy Bills

Commercial awnings can help you save energy, reduce energy bills, and add a touch of style to your commercial building. Awnings provide protection from the elements and your property.

Commercial awnings can be a great option for any commercial property owner that wants more control over energy consumption. They are stylish, add curb appeal, and can get energy consumption under control.

Energy Efficiency and Awnings

There are four primary ways that commercial awnings will reduce energy consumption. Choosing the right type of fabric or material for your awning can influence exactly how much you save on energy costs.

Reduce Heat From Solar Energy

Awnings reduce the effects of solar energy. Awnings have the power to reduce radiant heat gains by up to 77% and look completely stylish in the process. Heat can drive the temperature up in your commercial property, requiring your HVAC system to work harder and use more energy.

Cut Back on Your Energy Bill

Using awnings to control heat factors can reduce your energy bill by up to 25%. Cooling a commercial space can be expensive. Awnings can help to keep things more comfortable without having to push the limits of your AC.

Awnings Work With Your HVAC

Exterior shade created by awnings, according to the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers, can reduce the heat load of your HVAC system, and make it run more efficiently. Awnings can help your HVAC to run at the optimal level of efficiency.

Retractable Awnings Put Control In Your Hands for Year-Round Efficiency

The radiant heat from the sun is not always a bad thing. Those heat gains in the winter months can help to cut back on energy costs. A retractable commercial awning will allow you to control how much shade you need.

Other Benefits

Awnings deliver a wide range of benefits in addition to energy savings. They can help to protect exterior doors from the wear and tear of rain, snow, and ice. They can help to reduce UV ray fade on the exterior and interior surfaces. If you have tinted the windows of your property, awnings can improve the function of tinted windows.
