About Me
building a personal greenhouse

It has always been a dream of mine to have a greenhouse that I could use to grow my own produce during the winter. I love garden fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, cantaloupes and a variety of other produce and it made me sad when I had to quit gardening for the season. I decided that it was time for me to invest in having a greenhouse built in my backyard so that I could continue to grow throughout the entire year. Learn all about the selection of the glass and how it needs to be cared for right here on my blog.

Own A Commercial Property? 3 Ways To Save On Energy

Lee Moerman

If you own a commercial property, then you may be wondering how you can save on energy costs. Even though your tenants likely pay their energy bills for their specific unit, you still have to worry about things like making sure your lobby and hallways have electricity, heat, and air. So, how can you save money on your monthly energy expenses? This article will list three specific things that you can do. Are you interested in learning a little bit more? If so, then this article is for you. 

Glass Tinting

If you have a large building that has a lot of windows in it, then you probably get a lot of sun. And even though vitamin D is good for your skin and your soul, it can also make your building really hot during the summer. One thing that you can do is have your windows professionally tinted by a glass tinting service, such as American  Glass Tint Inc. One of these companies will come out and assess just how much tint they think you need to give you the best results. Then from there, you can narrow down your tinting choices. 

Solar Panels

One way for you to save on your energy bill every month is to get solar panels. solar panels are great because they are usually a tax write-off at the end of the year, which can save you additional money. Plus, they can lower your monthly bills drastically. So, how do solar panels work? Traditionally, solar panels work to absorb energy form the sun and then they store it to use throughout the day. If, however, there are a lot of cloudy days, then your solar panels may be hooked up to a traditional electrical grid to use a little bit of energy so you don't go without electricity. 

LED Lightbulbs

Another thing that you can do is change form traditional lightbulbs to LED lightbulbs. LED lightbulbs are more expensive upfront but they last a lot longer and use a lot less energy, which helps you save money each and every month. 

As you can see, there are several things that you can do to ensure that you commercial property isn't using too much energy and that you are saving money.
