Keeping costs low is an ongoing challenge for business owners and commercial property managers across the UK, particularly with the rising cost of electricity. They are high in the winter since the buildings must be kept warm. But in the summer months if your building uses air conditioning to keep temperatures down costs can be just as high as during winter.
When business owners consider window film, they typically imagine one-way vision or darkly tinted glass, but window film today provides much more. Without compromising views or natural light, they can offer significant year-round energy cost reductions.
Window film can deliver significant cost savings and will help reduce your carbon footprint.
Why choose a single technique that burdens the company financially unnecessarily when it is well known that air conditioning units consume a lot of energy in order to cool down buildings? Solar control window film on its own or working alongside your existing air conditioning systems can help you to reduce energy cost and also reduce a buildings carbon footprint.
Window film requires no servicing and upkeep once installed. It is a product that truly saves energy by lowering a buildings temperature in the hottest days of the year. It accomplishes this with no added costs to 'run,' as opposed to A/C systems, that are extremely costly to operate and maintain all year.
Window film is the best option for boosting energy efficiency and lowering company costs!
About Energy Saving Window Film.
Solar control window film stops a considerable amount of heat produced by the sun from entering a commercial property's windows. It is known to reduce solar heat gain by up to 80%.
Increased workplace comfort
Helps protect from fading
Protects skin from harmful U.V rays
Reducing solar heat gain through a buildings glazing is an important measure if you wish to help cut the costs by cooling. The UK Building Research Establishment (BRE) has reported that as much as 40 per cent of the load on air conditioners comes from countering heat gain from the sun shining through the window. So how does Window Film work? Put simply, it keeps out the sun, meaning less work for the air conditioner and in turn, lower energy bills and CO2 emissions. In fact, using the correct film can cut air conditioner load by almost a third, meaning the initial cost can be recouped in saved energy bills over three to five years. And as pressure grows on governments and corporations to meet commitments to meet CO2 reduction targets, Window Film can help a business move towards a cleaner and greener way of operating.
A Productive And Healthy Workplace Environment.
If the temperature rises above 24 degrees Celsius, concentration levels are reported to fall by fifty percent. If it increases over 25C in factories, workers are more susceptible to accidents. Furthermore, trade unions and employee organisations can put pressure on leaders to take action against an excessively warm place of employment. Window film contributes to a more stable and pleasant environment by lowering solar heat gain.
As well as helping to maintain a comfortable working environment, save your business money and reduce its carbon footprint, Energy Saving Window Films are also good for your health.
When it comes to people, Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals in London reports that 15% of the population suffers from light sensitive disorders, with sun exposure causing more than 90% of all skin cancers.
However, many people are unaware that they are being exposed to the sun whilst in the office or at their homes. Window film offers a crucial layer of protection from the sun's damaging rays, which are known to cause the onset of skin cancer and premature ageing.
Energy Saving Window Films block 99% of the damaging UV rays helping to protect your skin.
