Adding Solar Control Window Film to Windows vs. Replacing Windows – The Savings are Substantial
If you’re considering replacing your existing glazing system with tinted windows, there’s a less expensive and effective alternative you should know about: solar control window films.
Applying window film (tint) to windows provides a cost-effective option that can increase both employee and tenant comfort. A recent study reports that 80% of office workers have trouble concentrating if the temperature is higher than normal. And nearly two-thirds say that performing typical tasks take up to 25% longer.
In addition to reducing heat in your building, windows treated with Llumar solar control window film allows natural light in without glare. Leaving blinds and shades open reduces the need for lamps and overhead lighting – reducing costs further –while helping occupants maintain a much desired connection with the outdoors.
Keep Your Office Cooler With Window Film
By reducing heat and solar energy, windows tinted with window film can help “even out” the hot and cold spots throughout your building. The result is more satisfied tenants and greater employee comfort.
It also works in attracting premium tenants who more and more are looking for a sustainable work environment, and “green upgrades” that can provide proven energy savings.
When comparing costs, it’s important to remember that the latest solar- control window film technology is a fraction of what you’d spend for replacement windows, and works to reduce the HVAC load.
