How a Metal Canopy Can Keep Pennsylvania Businesses Cool
Things are heating up around the country, and many Pennsylvanians are enjoying the warm weather. As the saying goes, however, you can have too much of a good thing. Oppressive heat and humidity can be unbearable for people and businesses alike. High cooling costs, unusable outdoor seating, and uncomfortable guests and employees are just a few of the negative consequences that Pennsylvania businesses will face this summer as a result of the heat. Fortunately for Pennsylvania business owners, a new metal canopy from Datum can help keep things cool during the summer’s heatwaves.
Shade Guests With a Metal Canopy
One of the most popular reasons to install a metal canopy is to provide shade for visitors, keeping them cool, happy, and likely to return. Places like restaurants, parks, and shopping centers are excellent candidates for a new shade structure. Still, other establishments such as libraries, museums, and corporate campuses can also benefit from a shady place to congregate. Guests may be more likely to become repeat customers when they are kept comfortable, and businesses with outdoor areas can serve more visitors in high heat when they invest in a shade structure.
Sheltered Loading Zones Keep Staff and Visitors Cool
Businesses of all kinds use loading docks or loading zones to facilitate the transfer of goods and people. Distribution centers and retail establishments often utilize loading docks to load and unload goods, and a metal canopy can keep workers from overheating in the summer sun. Likewise, places like hospitals and hotels should consider sheltering their loading zones with shade structures to protect their visitors from the elements.
A Metal Canopy Can Help Reduce Cooling Costs
While an awning may not reduce cooling costs for every property, there are some situations in which a metal canopy can keep a building’s interior from heating up. Properties with exposed windows can inadvertently trap heat, similar to a greenhouse. Offices and storefronts with large windows can heat up quickly, increasing the need for air conditioning and causing energy costs to skyrocket. Protecting exposed windows with a metal canopy can limit the buildup of heat and keep cooling costs down.
