How We Make Commercial Buildings in Minnesota More Energy Efficient

How We Make Commercial Buildings in Minnesota More Energy Efficient

Energy costs are equally crucial for both homeowners and business owners; keeping the economy going is important, but so are the components of being fiscally conservative nowadays.

Your business can save a bundle with lower energy bills. But reducing your energy bills doesn't only pertain to your heating and cooling systems; figuring out how they can work together with proper insulation, windows, and roofing can save you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars a year! Other energy-saving methods can include lighting timers and using proper energy-saving lighting, such as CFLs.

Let’s face it. Commercial properties are just as much a significant investment as homes, even more so. Read on to learn how we can make commercial buildings more energy efficient, and feel free to contact us when planning for roof, window, insulation, or siding construction for your home or commercial building.

Insulating Your Business

In addition to roof repair, a professional roof contractor should be knowledgeable in highly effective modern insulation materials. We advise customers to insulate their business following the proper building codes and guidelines, ensuring the building will stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Insulation with a factory-applied vapor barrier may be required to prevent water vapor penetration and condensation from corroding the duct and fan system.

Change Out Old Windows With Modern Windows

We recommend changing out all older windows with energy efficient glass and materials. Replacing your windows with such innovative materials can help your business or property conserve more energy, as they help prevent air leaks from occurring.

Routine Roof Maintenance

There are a variety of factors that can cause your commercial roof to deteriorate, ranging from weather conditions to standard wear and tear. Deterioration can cause air to leak from your building and make the HVAC system work harder. When you notice your energy bills begin to rise significantly, you should contact Powers Premier to have one of our professionals inspect your roof.
