How does Tinted Glass Lower Energy Costs?

Tinted glass lowers energy costs by providing a glazing system over the surface of the glass that reduces energy consumption. Professionally tinted glass forms a coating of UV protection over the surface of your glass so that you do not have to use your air conditioning or heating system as often.

Additionally, this cuts down on the wear and tear of your HVAC systems and lowers your carbon emissions. Professional energy use audits have revealed that installing our energy-saving window film can obtain an energy savings of 15% or more.

The ROI (return on investment) of such units can yield this result in less than 3 years.

Is your building energy-efficient?

Research supports the US Department of Energy’s estimates that 1/3 of a building’s cooling load is from solar heat gain through windows and nearly 75% of these windows are not energy-efficient so using our window films can greatly increase your efficiency and energy level while decreasing your cost.

But if you do not have these window films installed, you are letting money escape along with your energy levels.

UV protection and solar control window film

So, what is the benefit of UV protection through solar control? Sunlight helps people obtain a more productive frame of mind, but it can also be irritating when the sun is too bright or produces a hot environment. In addition, UV rays can cause damage to furniture, flooring, collectibles or wall coverings, as well as important artwork or photography. Merchandising in retail windows is susceptible to damage and fading over time.

But some of the worst effects of UV rays are the fact that it can cause skin cancer in humans. You don’t want to take a risk by allowing the natural heat of the sun to do its damage. Ordinary glass offers little or no protection from these harmful rays, but our window films do. We can do so at a fraction of the cost of other methods.

How does solar control window film work?

It works by providing ultraviolet rejection by blocking 99% of harmful UV rays as much or more than suntan lotion does to the human skin. PRO-TINT solar window film provides a defense against the dangers of UV and to skin diseases and photosensitivity as well as protecting all the items we mentioned before in your retail space and protecting the tenants inside.

How does PRO-TINT window tinting compare to alternate methods?

Some people use other means such as curtains, blinds, or awnings to cut down on heat, the UV rays, and glare from harmful sunlight. But these elements block attractive views also while failing to keep out the harmful UV rays. People like to enjoy the sunlight coming in without the harmful effects. Window films are also 80 to 90% less expensive to install than replacement windows and installation is quick and easy.

These are ideal in high traffic areas where people might try the “smash and grab” technique to break a window and grab merchandise and run.
