Yes, commercial window film can actually save your business money. While you may not be all that familiar with window film, there are many benefits they provide. They can increase security, improve privacy, make your building cooler, and so much more. Today, you’ll see how commercial window film will save you money, and if you’re a responsible business owner, you want to save money anywhere you can.
Here are five ways commercial window film will save your business money.
Commercial window film can significantly reduce the cost of heating and cooling a building. You know how hot the summers are in Texas and that excess heat puts a constant strain on your air conditioning. Commercial window film prevents excess heat from entering your office through the windows. Your AC will be much more likely to keep up with the demand. In winter, these window films have the opposite effect. They work to keep heat in your building and not escape through the windows. You’ll have to use your heater less, saving you money each month on heating costs.
One of the best features of commercial window film is how it can save you money on your electric bill aside from lowering your cooling and heating costs. With the window film keeping the cool air in, you can keep your blinds and drapes open more often. This will let in more natural light and reduce your need for artificial lighting. When the drapes and blinds are closed, you have to make up for the darker environment by keeping the lights on more often. Letting in more natural sunlight will improve the environment in your building and save you from needing to have the lights on all the time.
Most windows allow sunlight to pout into your building, but that also means more UV rays. That extended exposure to direct sunlight can be detrimental to your office furniture over time. Harmful UV rays can cause upholstered furniture to fade or leather furniture to become dry and crack. Commercial window film allows all the same sunlight into your office, but will protect your furnishings from 99% of UV rays. It will also protect carpet and wall art from being worn by the sun. Your furniture and fixtures will last longer and save you the trouble and money of replacing them sooner.
Many office buildings require custom blinds and drapes for their commercial windows. If you’ve ever had to purchase these, you know they can be expensive. Commercial window film can provide the same level of privacy and protection without the need for drapes or blinds. This film acts as a one-way privacy screen, preventing people outside to see into your building. The amazing thing about this window film is that it still allows in plenty of natural light.
Window coverings like drapes and blinds require regular cleaning and dusting. Without the coverings, you eliminate the time and additional cost involved in maintaining them properly. Commercial window film does not require any special care or maintenance. They can be cleaned in the same way as normal windows and will maintain their condition for many years.
It’s easy to see how commercial window film can save your business a lot of money over time. As an added bonus in cost saving, the film can be applied without interrupting your daily work activities meaning you won’t lose money due to loss of production.
