Can Window Film Help Your Colorado Springs Office Building Conserve Energy?
Energy conservation is on everyone’s minds these days and for good reason– the cost of energy is high and the price is proving too high to pay both environmentally and financially. Also, conserving energy in a setting like an office building or highrise vastly increases profitability–plain and simple. So, if you own or manage an office building here in Colorado Springs, you should know–one of the best ways to get more money from your building and at the same time conserve energy is by having window film installed and it is more inexpensive than you may think.
How Window Film Works To Conserve Energy In Offices
The EPA has researched energy efficiency through window film and found it to be extremely effective. It is a proven way to conserve vast amounts of energy and in turn lowers utility bills– especially in commercial settings. Since about a third of energy is lost through inefficient windows, you could literally be losing heating and cooling dollars right out the windows of your Colorado Springs office. Window film drastically reduces the load on HVAC systems, by both reflection and/or blocking about 90% of solar heat gain that comes through your office windows. Also, window film has strong insulating properties making it a year-round solution to high energy expenditures. It is estimated that you will save about $2.00 per square foot just in HVAC efficiency. Add to that the fact that window film could qualify your building for additional tax credits (depending on the state city and county in which your business resides in). There are other benefits for commercial spaces as well, outside of energy conservation such as:
- Increased tenant comfort leading to reduced tenant complaints
- Tenant retention due to a better quality, more usable space
- Rapid return on investment
