You work hard to take care of your business by taking inventory, having great customer service, taking care of employees, etc. However, if you aren’t taking care of your building, you may not realize that you are losing money. Here are some energy efficient methods and technologies that can save you money on your commercial building.

Spray Foam Insulation

The average building’s energy costs run $30,600 a year with 40% of costs going towards heating and cooling needs. That is a big chunk of change going towards hvac costs each year! There is a solution: spray foam insulation. Spray foam is a plastic foam material that expands 30-60 times it’s size in order to fill whatever cavity that if fills. Here are some benefits from using spray foam insulation:

  1. Reduce Outside Noise
  2. Cut Heating and Cooling Costs by up to 50-60%
  3. Reduce Allergens and Pests
  4. Won’t degrade over time

If you can cut the hvac costs of $12,240 down to $6,120, that is a huge saving for your yearly expenditures. Also, spray foam is a certified eco-friendly logo product because it uses recycled plastics and many foams are now using soy products as well. Click here to learn more about spray foam:

Roof Coatings

Roofing has come a long way to improve not only the life of the roof but also the entire building. Still, there is a roofing method that has been around since the 1960s that can greatly improve the life of your roof and quality of your building: roof coatings. Roof coatings are made from high solid silicone that degrades very little over time and reflects 92% of the suns rays away from your building resulting in energy costs.

Electrochromic and Thermochromic Windows

Wouldn’t it be great to have sunglasses not only for your eyes but for your building? That is exactly what electrochromic and thermochromic do; they automatically darken when direct sunlight hits them. This helps control the temperature of the building and reduces heat coming through the window by 50%.
