After the holidays, many business owners make a resolution to cut down on expenses. The slowdown at the end of the year can leave wallets feeling very empty. Saving money during the winter months can be challenging, though. Everyone knows to turn the lights off when leaving the room and to lower the thermostat. But sometimes it just doesn’t seem like enough when the monthly energy bill arrives. Your hard-earned profits are being wasted every time an employee or customer opens the door, letting the heat out. Inefficient windows can also have the same effect, as they can let a cool draft enter the building, forcing the HVAC to work extra hard to maintain a warm and comfortable temperature.
Installing new energy efficient windows can cut down on the amount of wasted energy and save money on your monthly utility bills. Read on to discover four ways commercial glass replacement in Alaska can help save money this winter.
