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!

5 Amazing Benefits of Window Film

Protection Against UV Rays with Window Films

Tinted window films are a hot trend with homeowners. And why not? This product adds value and beauty to your home! From a loft in the city to a picturesque lake view, every home is improved when you have window tint installed. Take a look at the 5 amazing benefits of tinted window film, and you’ll see why homeowners are going so crazy over this product!


Tinted window film reduces your heating costs by saving as much as 30% on your heating bill. It takes a two-pronged approach to achieve this tremendous cost reduction.

First, window film adds a protective layer of insulation over your windows. This helps to prevent cold drafts from seeping through your windows. Second, that layer of insulation locks in the heat from your heating system. This means that it takes roughly 34% less time to heat up your home!

All of that adds up to money saved in keeping your home cozy and warm throughout the long Canadian winters.


Tinted window film also cuts down on summertime cooling costs. Essentially, tinted windows provide shade from the sun. This can cut your cooling costs by as much as 50%.

Additionally, it cuts down on how frequently your air conditioner runs, which extends the lifespan of that unit.


Simply put, tinted window films offer beauty which is the main reason that homeowners love this product. The look of window tint is far more contemporary and fashionable than old-fashioned curtains or blinds.

In fact, there’s no need to block off your view with curtains. You can still gaze outside and take in views while being afforded privacy. Nobody can see in, but you can still see out!


There’s nothing worse than sitting back to watch your favorite team on the television only to be blinded by the glare of the sun. It’s distracting and uncomfortable to watch.

Whether you work from home and need to cut down on glare on your computer screen or love watching tv without the sun reflecting off the television screen, tinted window film is a sure-fire fix for that problem!


The damaging ultra-violet rays from the sun do damage to your furnishings and flooring.

Have you ever moved a chair for the first time in a long time and noticed that it’s darker in the space where the chair sat? This is because the sun faded the flooring around the chair while the space under the chair was shaded.

Take a look at any piece of furniture sitting near a window. You’ll likely see that it has faded on the side directly facing the window.

These issues are completely avoided when you have tinted window film. You save money on replacement of furniture and flooring when you have tinted windows.


Tinted window film is an investment that homeowners are willing to pay. Because they save money on heating, cooling, and replacing flooring and furniture, it’s easy for them to justify the cost. Plus, the beauty and convenience of living in a glare-free home are worth the price.

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.

Contact the experts at Sunset Window Tinting today to arrange for a consultation. Make sure that you know all of the windows you need to be serviced, and any additional concerns that you may have so you can discuss it with them on the visit.

Quality Attributes Of The Best Window Films For Heat Reduction

As mentioned above, there are numerous types of window films from different manufacturers. Therefore, when you’re out shopping for window film for your residential needs, here are some useful key attributes you should be on the lookout for.

•    Total rejection of solar energy that measure’s the window film’s ability to block UV rays and keep infrared heat out. This measurement is usually indicated as a number, so the higher the number, the more comfortable you should be.

•    Light transmission is yet another quality to watch for since it measures how dark or light the film will be when installed. Note that, if the number indicated for light transmission is lower, the film will be dark.

•    Third, you should check the film’s ability to reflect visible light. If the number for this measurement is too high, you can be guaranteed a very shiny appearance.
