There is an incredible and surprising array of benefits that window films provide to any building, whether its the largest skyscraper in the city, or the smallest office on your street.
Installing window film is a smart way to lower energy costs and reduce CO2 emissions.
Northwest Window Tinting carries products that are designed to help facility owners cost-effectively conserve energy, increase building safety, enhance occupant comfort, and reduce monthly heating and cooling costs.
Big energy savings
Watch the numbers drop on those HVAC costs with our window film installation. Window films can keep out up to 86% of the sun’s heat, dramatically lowering air conditioning costs. In the winter, the same film helps retain interior heat, reducing heating costs. They may also help you attain LEED credits, getting your building closer to certification.
More comfortable work environment
Window films also help regulate the temperature disparity between the sunny and the shady areas of your building. Offices stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, all of which makes your employees more comfortable.
Glare causes eye fatigue and lower productivity. Drawing curtains or closing blinds is a claustrophobic approach at best, and it drives up the bill for artificial lighting. Window films let in the light but not the glare, helping to maintain an open feeling.
Protection from fading
The fading caused by the sun’s ultraviolet rays wreaks havoc on interior furnishings and merchandise, shortening their shelf life. Window films screen almost 100% of those harmful rays, potentially saving thousands in replacement costs.
Splintered, flying glass is one of the dangerous consequences of both natural and man-made disasters. Window films are specifically designed to hold broken glass in place, lessening the chance of injury and property damage. It also makes forced entry more difficult for would-be vandals and burglars, which is especially important for retail establishments.
Enhance your buildings appearance
Window films make building exteriors more attractive by eliminating visual clutter and creating a uniform appearance.
