Commercial Window Tinting Helps Improve Energy Efficiency

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

Commercial Window Tinting Energy EfficiencyHVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) systems in commercial buildings account for more than 40% of total energy use. This number increases when your air conditioning system has to compete with your windows. According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), windows account for 25-40% of a building’s annual heating and cooling costs. How? It’s simple. In the summer, as well as late spring and early fall, solar radiation (the sun’s rays), steadily increase the temperature in your building, causing your air conditioner to work harder and harder to achieve your desired temperature. The result: increased energy bills. Ca-ching!

Commercial Window Tinting Helps Improve Energy Efficiency

By reducing the impact the sun has on your office space, you can have a significant impact on your overall energy bill. Commercial window tinting can reject up to 80% of the sun’s heat and reduce energy costs from 5 to 15%. We know what you are thinking; “Can’t blinds or shades accomplish the same thing?” Well, yes and no. In order to block solar heat gain, blinds and shades must be kept closed. You can say sayonara to your beautiful view and natural light! Yikes! With commercial window tinting, you can keep your blinds or shades open, allowing natural light to shine through without having to worry about the heat gain. That’s what we like to call a win-win!
