HOW SUN CONTROL WINDOW TINTING WORKS
Window tinting reject 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.
Energy savings $$$$
Whether it’s a tall commercial building here in Arizona or a small single-unit retailer, more and more business owners and building managers are enjoying the benefits of window film to provide solar control and a more satisfying work environment for their employees. A few of the key commercial window film benefits include:
Energy Reduction – creating a consistent interior temperature, especially in large commercial buildings, is a constant challenge for commercial building managers. Depending on where and when the sun strikes a window, there can be inconsistent hot and cold spots in different areas of your building. This causes unnecessary adjustments to HVAC heat and air conditioning leading to higher energy costs. Window film in here in Arizona can help control solar heat gain thus creating a more balanced inside temperature.
Improve Building Appearance – when you own a commercial building, you can choose a particular commercial window film shade to compliment the exterior design of your building. This will not only improve the overall aesthetic look, but it will also raise the value of your building.
Increase Productivity – it’s important for building managers to create an optimal working environment for their employees. The effects of the Arizona sun, however can pose a real problem in establishing a comfortable work place – sun glare, too much heat, too cold in some spots due to increased air conditioning. The application of window film will lead to a more pleasant workspace, meaning your employees will be more productive.
