“Going green” is quickly becoming a mainstream concept. Companies across the country now find many ways to embrace sustainability, from the manufacturing process to the finished product. As a business owner, you can make sustainability a cornerstone of your methods and business practices.
When you take steps to ensure that your engineering, maintenance, and operations continuously seek ways to reduce your environmental footprint, everyone benefits. Your company saves money, your community enjoys a cleaner, less polluted environment. The world benefits as well.
Going green saves money, which is why many business owners make the switch to environmentally sound practices. That said, there are many other reasons to implement environmentally-friendly practices, including:
There are many things your company can do to shrink your overall carbon footprint.
VTECH Skylights are made to help your business reach your energy efficiency goals. They’re made from Cardinal LoE-366 glass, which is compliant in every ENERGY STAR zone when used in a double-pane window. In other words, our skylights are made from glass that is incredibly energy efficient, no matter where your business is located.
LoE-366 glass blocks UV rays while allowing visible light to pass through. In summer, VTECH skylights prevent your commercial building from heating up with rays from the sun. In winter, VTECH skylights help lock in the heat so that your business stays warmer without a lot of extra effort from your HVAC system.
This is good for your business – and your business sustainability – in a variety of ways. VTECH skylights allow natural light into your building, which can cut back your need for electric lighting during the day. At the same time, VTECH skylights are more energy-efficient than standard skylights. They’re insulated and help keep your business just as comfortable as it would be if you had no skylights at all.
This reduces the burden on your business’s HVAC system, which can lengthen the service life of appliances like your building air conditioners. This helps keep HVAC waste out of landfills. Relatedly, VTECH skylights are themselves built to last. They last years longer than many standard types of skylights, which again, keeps waste out of landfills and keeps money in your business’s coffers – all at the same time.
VTECH Skylights are made for energy efficiency and sustainability. If your business prioritizes “going green” as they say, then VTECH skylights can help reduce how much energy your business uses. Compared to other, less efficient skylights, installing VTECH skylights can also help prolong the life of your HVAC system, and can ultimately save your business a lot of money.
