There are many instances of wasted energy in a business or facility — lights that are left on in unoccupied rooms and inefficient cooling systems are just a few I can think of. Another source of wasted energy that often goes unnoticed is the amount of energy required to cool office space. Rooms that are continually heated by sunlight blaring in through the often oversized and untreated corporate windows are a huge energy suck. Did you know that about 1/3 of the load put on a business cooling system is directly related to the solar heat gain through windows. According to the Building Energy Databook’s yearly report, those are the facts.

Of course, windows are not generally the first thing that we notice or think of as a problem or a source of waste. Windows provide an outdoor view and sunlight that often reduces the need for artificial lighting. Even though there are some positive points, we can’t ignore the additional cooling requirements needed when windows are a source of solar heat gain.

So what’s the solution? Window film. Having your windows professionally treated with the proper window film reflects the light and prevents the penetration of unwanted heat. Window tinting helps to create an even temperature throughout the building by reducing those ‘hot areas’ that direct sunlight often causes.

Buildings with numerous windows that face north and south have the most trouble, since the northern offices often experience uncomfortably cool temperatures while offices with southern exposure are stuffy and too warm. Window film creates the perfect climate control and energy solution for all.

How Does Window Tinting Work?

When light from the sun shines into an unprotected window, the light or rays are actually made up of three parts: ultraviolet radiation, near-infrared radiation and visible light. About 6% of the light is reflected by a clear window, some is absorbed, but the majority is transmitted right through the glass. The installation of window film greatly increases the percentage of solar energy that is redirected and absorbed. This makes a huge difference in the overall temperature and comfort level of the office area.

How much energy is actually reflected by window film? Surprisingly, the heat rejection ability of industrial grade film can be up to eighty percent. This percentage increases or decreases based  on the quantities and types of metals used in the film.

What does all this mean? Two things. The first is a direct reduction in solar heat gain which translates into comfortable, even temperatures throughout an entire building. The second is a marked decrease in kwh used for cooling. Basically, it’s a no-brainer.
