There’s a time to splurge and a time to save. Savvy business owners know the difference.

And when it comes to energy costs, the answer is obvious. The amount of money it costs to power an office or commercial building for one calendar year easily adds up to thousands of dollars.

And chances are, if your office has single pane windows, a lot of the money you’re spending is wasted. Windows account for up to 30% of energy loss in commercial structures.

That’s why energy efficient window film makes sense for Colorado offices. Below, we’ve listed our top five recommendations for energy efficient window film options in 2021.

How Window Tinting Saves Energy

Window tint isn’t just for keeping out glare on car windshields. It’s also a powerful insulating material that can tremendously improve the energy efficiency of any commercial building.

Using something referred to as “spectrally selective technology,” window film picks and chooses what types of light can pass through windows. Infrared rays, which create heat, are kept out while visible light passes through.

In this way, window tint essentially blocks heat without blocking light.
