How Sun Control Window Tinting Can Improve Your Building’s Energy Efficiency

By June 1, 2016 August 20th, 2020 Commercial, How To

Sun control window tinting is an ideal first step towards making any commercial building greener and more energy efficient, not only because it costs less than many other measures, but because installation can be completed quickly without disruption to daily business.

How it Works

Window tinting rejects as much as 83% of the sun’s heat

by causing it to bounce off of the glass and away from the building. This can translate into a savings of one ton of air conditioning for every 100 square feet of glass filmed. Without tinting, your windows allow the heat to pass through to interior spaces where it accumulates. This accumulated heat (often referred to as heat load) must be pumped out of the building by your HVAC system. By reducing the heat load, the HVAC equipment works more efficiently and at a lower overall energy cost.

Window tinting also helps retain interior heat during winter months and that means

you’ll experience heating costs that are reduced by up to 30%.

Factoring these together means that, on average, business owners see a return on their investment after just two years from heating and cooling costs alone.

The sun’s ultraviolet rays can wreak havoc on a building’s interior furnishings, wood, carpet and artwork, fading them and shortening their useful life. Our film used for window tinting filters out 99.9% of harmful rays to dramatically reduce fading. The same window film reduces glare that can lead to problems viewing computer screens and eliminates the need for opening and closing the blinds daily.
