There’s no sure way of knowing exactly what winter will look like this year in the Wyoming, but some people think the storm that occurred this last weekend may be a fairly good indication. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, precipitation levels are expected to be higher than usual which could lead to a fair amount of snow and some cold winter weather. That’s why if there was a time to invest in window film for your Cheyenne office, now is the time.
Window Film for Winter Energy Savings
You may be wondering, how can window tinting help your office get through winter? After all, isn’t window tint usually used on cars? Well, actually no. Window film is a product commonly used by many architects and building professionals on commercial structures like office buildings, hotels, and restaurants because it’s highly insulated and it helps regulate heat transfer, two factors that contribute largely to energy efficiency.
It’s estimated that almost one fifth of the entire country’s energy consumption is caused by commercial structures. And an alarming amount of energy is lost due to poor window insulation, or untreated single pane glass. Basic thermodynamics can help explain this effect. Heat is always transmitted from a higher temperature to a lower. Therefore, if the temperature outside your office is lower than the temperature inside, the heat produced by your hvac system will transmit through your windows. That is, unless you have some kind of insulation like window film.
Window film acts a barrier that regulates heat transfer during the winter. Visible light is able to pass through the film, but radiant heat is trapped within, keeping your building warmer and more comfortable. By preventing the heat from escaping, window film increases hvac efficiency and helps cut down on energy costs. Studies show that window film can cut down on heating costs by anywhere from 5-15%. For most businesses, that’s hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars saved annually.
And lower energy bills aren’t the only benefit. Studies show that employees are happier and more productive in a comfortable environment. By installing window film, you can keep your office warmer and more comfortable and experience the benefits of a more productive, and more focused staff. And better productivity almost always leads to higher profits.
