You want every customer to feel invited. And what says “welcome” better than an open door? However, a store entrance with a big opening negatively affects the indoor climate, making life for staff unbearable. How can you get it right?
Pleasant indoor climate for happier employees
Customers expect a pleasant indoor climate when they enter the store, and they tend to stay longer in a store that is neither too hot, nor too cold. However, even more important is taking your staff into consideration. Maintaining the right temperature is absolutely essential for the employees who spend their entire working day in the building.
With doors that open and close at the appropriate times, it is possible to keep an even temperature throughout the day. There are several ways to achieve this and you can read more about them here.
Energy savings with a smart entrance
Saving energy is good, both for the environment and for your wallet. With expected increases in electricity prices and ever more stringent regulations demanding “zero-emission” buildings, you need to think ahead. Add environmentally-conscious customers with Twitter accounts to the mix, and it becomes clear that you have every reason to make sure that your store doesn’t leak hot air during the colder season or cold air during heat waves. Today, there are many solutions that can help you in your endeavor to save energy and cost, without making your store entrance less welcoming.
