How To Improve The Efficiency Of Your Office With Tinted Windows

As the manager or owner of a business, you’re always looking to get the best return on your investment. Sometimes, the best capital investment is in your Human Capital. That’s right, your valued employees. I bet you’d love to get them the comfort that they deserve yet keep them efficient! Today, we’ll look at how to improve the efficiency of your office with tinted windows.
Your employees need to work in comfort. If you are in a space with large windows and great views, that’s certainly often motivating. But what about the discomfort of the sun? If you give your employees that stimulating view while protecting them from distractions, you will have the best of both worlds!

Here is what tinted window film can do to improve your office space.


While bright rays of sunshine are cheery to look at, they are often a source of distraction. As the sun beams through your office windows, the rays refract and intensify. This causes employees to become distracted by the sunlight. In fact, they might be forced to shift to one side of their seat, constantly adjust their monitor, or get up to adjust blinds. All these actions break interrupt their productivity.
Tinted window film allows a bright, light-filled space that’s glare-free.


You know that glare we just talked about? It can cause force your employees to squint to cut down on the glare. Over an hour or so of squinting, eye strain sets in. It’s quickly followed by a headache. You might even observe employees popping pain relievers by the handful, “borrowing” aspirin for their headaches, or even cutting out before the end of the workday due to the pain.
Your employees can be losing hours of time every year due to headaches that can be reduced by tinting your windows!


Do your employees have space heaters under their desks? That can cost you money! Not only is it draining to your power bill, it’s dangerous. One forgotten space heater left on for a weekend can cause a fire. That is a definite killer to your efficiency!
Tinted window film acts as an insulator to your windows. The thin layer of film is applied professionally and seals the warm air in and the cold air out. This prevents drafty air and keeps your employees warm in a safer manner.


If you take cash payments during the day, you may notice employees who become very nervous when it’s time to batch the daily sales. They may rush through this important task because they fear someone with ill intentions may watch, or even stalk, them.
Tinted window film will make your employees feel secure enough to handle whatever business they must handle without fear. They will be able to see out through the windows and remain vigilant. However, passersby or criminals can’t see in to watch them batch money or get ready to leave the building.


With these points in mind, please consider the positive change that tinted window film could have on your office. Your workers will feel more comfortable and secure in their environment…and efficient and happy employees are always a win for you!

Winter heating bills

Looking to reduce your home heating costs? Window Film is your answer

Reduce your home heating costs with Window Film

Home energy consumption statistics released in 2017 show that Canadian homes spend 48% of their energy costs on cooling and heating. This is quite a bill and you should already be looking for ways to reduce it.

While going “green” with home energy sources has been at the core center of taming energy bills, it should not be forgotten the significant contribution one gets from window tinting. Window tints and films can greatly reduce the rate of heat gain in your home as well cut down the penetration of UV light into your rooms.

Obviously, window tinting and filming is always getting less credit than it deserves. To place it right in the charts of saving heating costs, here is how it helps achieve an energy-efficient home:

Cuts down cooling expenses by 50%

In a typical home, windows cover almost 15% of the wall space. With the advantages of natural light into homes, the need for more glass windows will always rise. As you might already know, glass is a poor insulator and all your energy expenses are literally being lost through your windows.

Luckily, window tinting and filming is one of the cheapest ways to reduce this waste and save on your energy bills. If you get a good residential window tinting company, you can reduce your energy costs by a margin of 80%.

Keep away the winter cold

If left to have a free way into your house, winter cold can immensely increase your heat consumption. But tinted windows could be the shield you need to guard the cold from your home. In such conditions, you will need less air conditioning and running of fans. Your energy bills will not be heating the ceiling every time the cold weather comes knocking.

Helps extend the service life of your air condition unit

Energy costs are not only limited to the direct charges you pay for it. What you spend on your air condition apparatus will also be part of that bill. With less cold and heat getting into your home, your heat conditioning system will be left with light tasks. You can count on them to give you longer life service than if they had to be overworked.

It will take 34% less time to reach desired room temperature

With minimal heat and cold getting in and out of your rooms, you will achieve desired temperature in 34% less time. It goes without saying that you will be saving a lot in energy bills.

Guaranteed 30% less energy consumption

With proper window tinting and filming, you can be assured of 5 degrees less of your room temperature. This will automatically translate to 30% savings on your heating costs.

How To Reduce Your Home Heating Costs

Kelowna Home Heating Costs Reduced With Window Film

When it comes to keeping your home comfortable throughout the year, there are many things that you can do. From ensuring that your insulation is well done, to filling in gaps around your doors and your windows. You can reduce the amount of money that you spend annually to keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. One of the choices that you can make is to have window film installed by a professional company.

While you can attempt such a task on your own, this is rarely a good idea. There are specifics related to the application that you may not be able to get from a tutorial. Not only that, you could end up wasting countless hours and dollars attempting to do it before deciding upon turning the job over to a professional.

Temperatures Influenced By Radiation and Rays

The heat levels in your home can be influenced by the radiation and rays that are coming in through the windows. The glass of your windows will absorb some of that heat, and through conduction, will transfer some of that heat into the room. Also, the framing and other pieces around the window will also heat up, providing additional heat transfer.

The other way that heat is transferred into, or out of, your home is through convection. This type of heat transfer occurs between a gas and a solid. For instance, when the cold wind blows on your windows, it cools them down. The natural laws of conduction then cool the air within your home, which increases your energy bills as you attempt to compensate for the change. One way that reduces this impact is through double, or even triple pane windows. However, that is not your only choice.

A far more affordable choice is to have window film installed professionally to all of your external windows. This will help your windows to absorb and hold the heat more readily, and provide a barrier to minimize the impact that inclement weather can have upon your heating costs.

When you are ready to make changes to your home or office that will provide you with a significant savings on your utility bills, you need to add window film to your list. This is an affordable alternative to having all of the windows replaced, and can lower your heating bills.

Other changes, such as making sure that the windows are sealed properly, and that you do not have any other air leaks in your home, will further your efforts toward saving on your heating bill. You may wish to have a professional inspect your home to see where you have the most egregious leaks so that you can correct them quickly.
