Building Envelope Improvements: Insulate Your Business from High Energy Costs

Upgrade and save

Is your building well insulated? Because if your business has a poorly insulated roof or inefficient windows, chances are your air conditioning and ventilating equipment are working extremely hard to keep unwanted heat out of your building. And that means higher energy costs.

FPL's Business Building Envelope Program can help you save energy and money by providing incentives for adding or installing:

  • Roof and ceiling insulation
  • Reflective roof measures
  • Spray polyurethane foam (SPUF)
  • Window treatments (i.e., solar film, solar screens, or high efficiency window replacements).

With more efficient roofs, ceilings and windows, you will benefit from:

  • Lower air conditioning bills every year
  • A more comfortable environment for employees and patrons
  • A longer life for business equipment and furnishings
