How Commercial Shade Structures Affect Energy Consumption

How Commercial Shade Structures Affect Energy Consumption

The main concern for businesses is to save energy, and ultimately to save money. But many business owners fail to tap into the energy-saving potential of shade structures. Here are a few of the ways that a commercial shade structure can affect your energy consumption.


Long hours of sunlight can raise the temperature of your building’s interior, which means that you will have to spend more on air conditioning. But a commercial shade structure can cut back on the amount of sunlight that gets in. That way, investing a shade structure can help you cut down on your energy bill. It will also save you money by sparing the amount of strain to your HVAC system.

UV Rays

Too much sunlight can also hurt your building and the people inside because of harmful ultraviolet, or UV rays. But if you invest in a commercial shade structure, it will help you protect the interior of your building. This will make it easier to save money on expensive equipment wearing down or fading the sunlight, and save on your electricity bill on the running quality of these items.

Window Tinting

Many business owners choose to invest in window tinting to help reduce the negative effects of sunlight. But window tint and a shade structure are not mutually exclusive. You can add a shade structure to enhance the effects of your window tint. That way, you will make sure that your building is protected from UV rays.
