Let’s face it; someone is always complaining about the temperature in your office. It’s inevitable. It’s either too hot or too cold. The temperature is never just right. Where is Goldilocks when you need her? Unfortunately, you don’t live in a fairy tale world. There is no magical solution to your problem. No fairy godmother. No magical beans. No ruby slippers. There aren’t even any walking, talking, porridge-loving bears. But there is a simple (albeit non-magical) solution: Commercial Window Tinting.
Commercial Window Tinting Helps Keep Tenants Happy
One of the primary reasons for heating and cooling imbalances in commercial buildings is windows. By reducing the impact the sun has on your office space and stabilizing building temperature, you can have a significant impact on tenant comfort and employee productivity. Believe it or not, office temperature plays an important role in employee productivity.
According to a Cornell University study, employee productivity is at its highest when office temperature falls between 70 and 73 degrees. Productivity decreases when temperatures drop below 63 degrees or climb above 82 degrees. Employees waste 10% of their time per hour and make 44% more mistakes. Ouch! Fortunately, commercial window tinting can help stabilize your office temperature and keep your employees happy, healthy, and productive.
Additional benefits include:
- Energy Efficiency: According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), windows account for 25-40% of a building’s annual heating and cooling costs. Commercial window tinting can reject up to 80% of the sun’s heat and reduce energy costs from 5 to 15%.
- Security: Tinting is designed to prevent glass from shattering in the event that it is broken and to safely hold it in place.
- Glare: Glare from the sun can cause headaches and eye fatigue, resulting in decreased productivity. Commercial window tinting can help eliminate glare, allowing your employees to stay productive. Ca-ching! Hello, increased profitability.
- View: Closing the shades makes offices feel closed off and increases the use of overhead lighting. Tinting can help eliminate glare and reduce overall energy consumption.
- And So Much More!
