Commerical Window Tinting: Get the Most for Your Money
September 08th, 2012
Commercial window tinting is getting much more attention these days. Energy is becoming much more expensive. In order to cut back on interoffice energy costs, many businesses are looking into the world of commercial window films. Commercial window films have many advantages cutting costs is just a bonus to all of the other benefits businesses can receive by installing window films.
For instance, window films are manufactured and designed to offer a reduction on solar heat, minimize air conditioning costs, save on lighting utilities and provide UV/IR protection all while controlling glare in work spaces and offering security, safety and decorative values that normal windows do not provide.
The actual glass of a window has built in compounds to fight energy loss and to ward off the solar heat that is actually entering the building, but this alone is not always effective. There are many factors that will determine exactly how well the internal building is protected from the rays of the sun. Internal lighting and even window seals play a major role when determining the effectiveness of a window. If a windows SC (Shading Coefficient), reduction of heat loss, is not up to par, then much of the internal heat of the building will be lost, ultimately resulting in an increase in energy costs. For example, any building 50,000 square feet and larger is most likely in cooling mode for 100% of the year, which means its AC is in actual full swing all year long to make up for all the heat that is absorbed through windows, internal lighting and equipment that may be running and omitting heat. This proves that simply replacing a window or all windows for that matter may not make a difference in any energy saving at all. So the next step to ensure that your business is protected and employees are provided with a safe and comfortable work environment, adding a window film to your buildings windows will prove to be more inexpensive then replacement of windows and will prove to be much more energy efficient then windows alone.
