Cost Effective Energy Saving Technology for Homes & Commercial Spaces
Cost Effective Energy Saving Technology for Homes & Commercial Spaces

If you are considering energy saving technology for your home or commercial space without breaking the bank, you should consider a professionally installed window film. Window film innovation has taken major leaps in recent years and the film installed on home or commercial windows has little in common with the basic window tint you might find on a car. For one thing, you can achieve very high levels of performance with professional window films while barely being able to detect that they are installed on the glass. In addition, these films can be retrofitted to nearly any existing window to improve the performance of that unit in a more cost effective way than window replacement.


A recent article at Builder Online even noted that: “Energy Commission creates a “loading order” that ranks products on energy efficiency by cost effectiveness. Window film is near the top of those products, beating even blown in ceiling insulation.”


So, with that in mind, we wanted to provide you with a couple of facts about window film and how it can improve nearly any home or commercial space.


FIVE FAST WINDOW FILM FACTS


Cut Cooling Costs By Up To 50% - According to the EPA Energy Star Buildings Manual in the United States, approximately half of a home’s utility bills are wasted by loss of heat and heat gain through untreated windows. Window films can significantly improve energy efficiency. With a thin, virtually invisible addition to existing windows, window films can help you save up to 50% on cooling costs.


Reduce Hot Spots and Cut Irritating Glare - Open your blinds, shades, or draperies and let the sunlight in. In addition to blocking heat, window film reduces glare by up to 87%, making it easier for you to watch television or work on a computer in comfort. Because window films are made with ultra-clear, distortion-free materials, you won’t even know it’s there.


Lessen the Detrimental Effects of UV Exposure - Most fabrics, furnishings and artwork can fade simply by allowing daylight to pass through an untreated window. Most window films will block up to 99.9% of all UVA and UVB rays, helping to protect the occupants of the space while also preserving the color of furnishings, fabrics and carpets.


Corrects Temperature Imbalances Across a Space - Window films can help eliminate hot and cold spots within a space by using film that reduces heat gain coming through the glass in hot areas. This will create a more balanced temperature across the space and reduce the load on the air conditioning system.


Cost Effective Alternative to Window Replacement - While damaged or deteriorating windows simply have to be replaced, window film provides an affordable alternative to replacement when your goal is to improve energy efficiency on otherwise sound windows. In fact, the cost for quick, professional installation is about one-tenth the cost of replacement windows!

We recently came across an article on Ecopreneurist that discussed how window films can enable your business to embrace green building technology that reduces business operating costs while helping the environment. Most business and building owners would like to adopt green building strategies as it is beneficial for the environment, but the cost of many of these technologies is prohibitive when taking the bottom line into consideration. This is exactly what makes commercial window films so attractive. Window film technology not only helps a building operate more energy efficient, it will often pays for itself in just a few years through utility cost savings.


As the article states, “When window tint is applied to a building it forms a protective barrier from many unwanted elements. On top of rejecting virtually all incoming UV light (a health benefit in its own right), tinting is also highly effective in heat absorption. Films are capable of absorbing up to well over 60% of incoming heat. When this happens, the propensity for cooling your buildings interior is all but certain to decrease. That, in turn, works to effectively slash energy costs for the business. While reduced energy costs might add to your businesses’ bottom line, it profits the environment as well. With less energy usage, more emissions are saved from being released into the atmosphere. While emissions saved by one business (alone) may not be enough to save our environment, collective action may bring us incredibly closer.”


It is certainly understandable that any business needs to keep an eye on the bottom line. With that in mind, in 2018 it is also important for any business to take steps to operate in an environmentally friendly way when possible. As the article continues, it states “it’s time for companies to take more action towards being environmentally sustainable. Window tinting offers a grand opportunity for just that. Unlike most eco-friendly activities, tinting provides direct, tangible savings on the balance sheet. As companies continue to tighten their belts, and consumers become more eco-conscious, the backdrop may be set for something truly incredible.”
