How Window Film Can Help Colorado Springs Schools, Colleges and Universities Be More Energy Efficient
Energy Saving Window Film For Colorado Springs City Schools
Energy costs tend to skyrocket from time to time and year after year are always getting higher. This means problems for residential and commercial here in Colorado Springs but especially for schools, colleges, and universities–which house a number of people both living on campus and studying in classrooms From the Mountain View Elementary School to Colorado College–places of higher learning here in Colorado tend to feel the squeeze of tightened budgets because of skyrocketing utility costs. However, there is a powerful way for these types of learning places from elementary to university–window film.
The Many Energy Saving Window Film Benefits For Schools
Schools and Universities here in Colorado Springs have many windows and this means high demand on their HVAC systems. This means that window film is a great way for them to save a fair amount of money through window film reducing energy costs. The two main factors at play here are a big reduction in the amount of visible and infrared light absorbed or reflected by the film and lower HVAC costs.
Window Film For Solar Heat Gain On Windows In Colorado Springs Schools
When infrared light is reflected away from windows it means building uses less energy. Window film causes this reflection and there for great reductions in solar heat gain–sometimes by 80%. Spectrally selective films reduce solar heat gain in the summer–therefore lowering A/C bills and also trapping that same heat in the winter–lowering heating bills in the winter. This powerful combination means a huge reduction (around 25% -45%) on school energy bills.
Lower HVAC Maintenance Costs For Colorado Springs Schools With Window Film
When heated and cooled air is trapped inside HVAC systems work much less frequently and keeps systems from switching on and off or running constantly. When your HVAC runs less, it extends the life of the systems dramatically. Since the cost of repairing and maintaining large commercial HVAC systems is incredibly high, putting less load on them puts quite a bit of money back in the pockets of schools to use for other things. So, by stopping the problem of chronic HVAC maintenance where it starts, at the windows, schools, colleges, and universities here in Colorado Springs, save on utilities each year and put more money into educating students.
