If either you or your client is considering replacing an existing glazing system with tinted windows, there’s a less expensive yet effective alternative that you should know about: LLumar solar-control films.
Applying window film to existing windows provides a cost-effective option that can increase occupant comfort. A recent study reports that 80% of office workers have trouble concentrating if the temperature is higher than normal. And nearly two-thirds say that performing typical tasks take up to 25% longer.
In addition to reducing heat in your building, windows treated with LLumar solar-control window film allow natural light in without glare. Leaving blinds and shades open reduces the need for lamps and overhead lighting – further reducing energy costs – while helping maintain a much desired connection with the outdoors.
When comparing costs, it’s important to remember that the latest solar-control film technology costs a fraction of what you’d spend for replacement windows, and works to reduce the HVAC load.
