It’s an unpleasant truth, but some people spend more time awake at the office than they do at home during the week. A typical eight-hour shift is one-third of the hours in a day as it is and accounting for a commute and time spent sleeping, the office can feel more like home than home itself. This is all the more reason to ensure that the office is a comfortable place to spend time. You can help with the situation with commercial window replacement in Boston. If you’ve never considered replacing your windows, our team at Windows Interior can help you weigh your options in some ways that your business can benefit from.
Better temperature regulation
Old windows that are made from single-pane glass can be ineffective at keeping outside temperatures where they belong. You’ll find the solar heat radiates through the glass during the summer and feels very much like it’s magnified in areas around the windows. The same can happen during the winter as the air near the windows gets continually colder. Newer windows are built with double or triple panes that will help to insulate the inside of your building from outside temperatures. This makes for a much more comfortable working environment and keeps your HVAC system from having to work quite so hard.
Improved energy efficiency
In addition to providing better insulation with double- or triple-paned windows, you can make sure that you have tighter seals around the windows that prevent air from leaking in or out. As your windows age, the caulking around the edges will take a beating as the temperature warms and cools over the years. This can eventually lead to cracking and splitting, which make it easier for air to flow in and out of your office. The cross breeze that’s created will make your heating and cooling systems work much harder to keep up. If you’re hesitant to spend the money on new windows, consider that the money you spend on new windows will eventually be saved on energy bills in the future.
Modernize your building
Old and outdated windows can really age a building. You can repaint the window sill and grilles, but it will still look like it’s aged. A commercial window replacement will freshen up the front of your store or office to add some extra curb appeal and be more inviting for your employees and customers.
Reduce outside noise
As we previously mentioned, new windows make for a tighter seal around the window frame. In addition to helping with airflow into your office, you can keep outside noise out. This can be beneficial when you work in a part of town that has a lot of road traffic, pedestrians walking by, or even if you’re close to the airport. You can provide your employees with a quieter work environment that will help with productivity.
