When it comes to running your business, saving money wherever you can is so important. Costs can add up, and it’s no exception with your windows. In addition to several other benefits, window tinting can save you money for several reasons.
Nothing is more exciting than the prospect of installing new windows in your home. But, as much as you are eager to jump in, you want to make sure that you take full advantage of this opportunity to upgrade. Below are the two main reasons why insulated windows are well worth your investment.
Whether you’re looking for a better way to keep your home temperature-controlled or to cut down on energy costs, window tinting is a great way to save energy. Not only can window tinting boost your home’s privacy and help protect you and your family from harmful ultraviolet rays, but it can also help make your home more eco-friendly. But how is window tinting eco-friendly? Here are some of the eco-friendly benefits of window tinting to help you go green at home.
While it is common knowledge that we all need to take measures to protect our skin from the sun’s potentially harmful rays and the ill effects of sunburn when we are outdoors, the fact that we also need to take some indoor sun safety measures seems to go largely ignored. Unfortunately, most windows are not an effective safety shield from the sun’s ultraviolet rays, which means that both you and your possessions and furniture are still at risk. Without an effective sun safety shield, this can contribute to aging, skin cancer, and even eye damage. Window tinting will not only protect you long term, but reduce fading in your furniture and possessions. Here are some reasons to invest in window tint. (more…)
Although fully-windowed buildings may look sleek and spiffy from the outside, this style is not quite ideal when it comes to energy efficiency. Untreated windows transfer loads of solar energy to the interior of your office building, where it then becomes heat, which in turn boosts the need for air conditioning in order to maintain a comfortable working environment. Commercial window tinting is a simple and effective way to reduce costs and increase energy efficiency for your office space. (more…)
If you thought you had to live with high energy bills during the summer, did you know that residential window tinting could help you save money?
You won’t feel forced to to cut off the air conditioning with the help of residential window tinting, and you will be thrilled with smaller bills. Let’s review how residential window tinting can improve your energy efficiency. (more…)
HVAC (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!
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!
