    Energy Efficient Glass – How your Business can Save Money

    Energy efficiency means more than protecting the environment. It also means cutting overhead costs for your business, and that helps you protect your bottom line. Whether you are operating a home based business or maintaining an office building, Dan’s Glass offers glass solutions that can save you money.

    UV Resistant Glass

    UV resistant glass lets light pass through, but filters out a majority of the UV light responsible for fading furniture, carpets, and other damage. It creates a more comfortable atmosphere for employees and clients and helps preserve the area, reducing repair, upholstery, and maintenance costs.

    Reduce Heating and Cooling Costs

    Energy efficient glass equates to lower heating costs in the winter, and reduced air conditioner operation when it heats up outside. You still enjoy the reduced energy costs available from ambient light, with the added bonus of spending less to keep your shop or office comfortable.

    Energy Efficient Glass Applications

    There is more than one way to reduce costs with energy efficient glass. In some cases, multiple methods can be used, such as using laminated glass and dual panes. Our experienced glass technicians will consult with you on the most appropriate options for your business, including using different types of glass to match the structure and performance desired.

    • Tinted Glass – Tinted glass is available in both tempered glass for storefront applications and tinted panes for ordinary window glass. The use of tinted glass is one of the more economical methods of energy efficiency.
    • Double-Paned Glass – Double-paned glass can be air filled or use special gases to reduce heat conduction even more. The idea is to create a non-conductive space between panes of glass that helps prevent heat from getting in. Tinting and glazing can be combined with double or triple pane installation for greater efficiency.
    • Glazed Glass – Glazing adds strength to glass, which is beneficial in areas prone to earthquakes. It also reduces heat conduction, which helps save money on energy costs. Glazing is available in a variety of applications, including window tinting and reflective glass.

    Weather Stripping and Caulking

    Window glass is not the only part of your windows which need to be considered. Worn or aging window sealants also allow a great deal of heat transfer by allowing air to move directly between the indoor and outdoor environments. Even if you are not replacing your commercial window glass, having your windows and doors checked and resealed can save you a noticeable amount.

    With nearly 40 years of window glass experience, Dan’s Glass is an established glass company with locations in and around Concord, California. We can analyze your existing windows and provide you with accurate tips on making your business more energy efficient through replacing panes or laminating what you already have in place.
