How Much Window Film Energy Savings Will You Receive?

September 7, 2011 | 1 comment

Commercial window tint is a true long-term investment with typical payback in three years or less, which can help transform operating budgets.

Reduce Energy Bills

In essence, reducing the cost of energy each month is simple: use HVAC systems less often and at less of a capacity. However, with temperature peaks in the summer and winter, that can be a difficult goal for a facility manager to achieve while still keeping tenants or employees happy.

Window film energy savings are a result of temperature regulation within a building.  Commercial window tint can block up to 75% of the heat from the sun, which reduces the load on HVAC systems. In addition, some types of premium, low e window film add an extra layer of insulation that prevents heat from escaping during the cooler months.

Some may also see additional savings from increased productivity, as studies show a link between employee efficiency and whether workplace temperature is within a comfort range.

Reinvest Savings

Commercial window tint requires a lower initial investment than other energy saving upgrades, such as updated HVAC systems. With window film energy savings, many facility managers are able to bridge the budgetary limitations to larger scale improvements, making window film their first step of an energy savings renovation.

Not only does commercial window tint help forward-thinking companies increase energy savings, it also helps preserve current investments. Standard windows are unable to prevent the UV rays in sunlight from damaging interiors. However, quality window film can block up to 99.9% of the harmful UV rays that contribute to the fading of furniture and flooring.

Vista™ window films will pay for themselves in as few as three years. The energy savings calculator can help calculate potential savings for any facility.

    Definitely! In Hawaii our cost per kilowatt hour for commercial buildings are the highest in the Nation, so where it says “3 year ROI” above, it’s more like 1.5 years on Oahu and as quick as 6 months on Kauai who pay around $.50 per kw/h and climbing… We always provide our commerical customers with an Energy Audit and it pays off.. take the time to use that tool and you will see the results…
