Denver Schools can benefit from window tinting – as will their budgets.
Operating a Denver school building or entire school system can result in exorbitantly high costs to the community, or to the parents if it is a private school. One of the larger costs involved in operating the schools is the heating and cooling systems. These systems have to work hard to provide heat during the winter and cool during the summer adding to the costly operating costs. And Denver school windows add to that cost if they are drafty, if they are only single pane and allow the heat to escape, or if they face in a way that allows an enormous amount of heat gain in warmer weather from the sun’s rays.
A school’s energy costs can run into the thousands of dollars per month. As administrator, perhaps you have been wondering if there is anything you can afford to do that will be an effective investment to lower those costs. And, in a perfect world, have the investment quickly pay for itself by way of lowered energy costs.
Perhaps the world has just gotten a little bit more perfect, because there is an affordable and practical solution to the energy bill crisis. By installing energy efficient window film on Denver school windows, you can dramatically cut these costs and put that money back into education.
Basically, you have two options for your Denver school’s windows. You can buy replacement windows with specially treated low-e glass. But this is an expensive option, and perhaps your school board or whoever allots funding will not ever approve such an expenditure.
The other option is energy efficient window films. In essence, a coating is applied right to the windows already existing in your schools. Application is simple and quick, approximately twenty minutes per window. And here are the benefits for a Denver or Colorado school:
- 1. Window films can cut a school’s heating and cooling bills by up to 60%. This is a savings you will receive year in and year out.
- 2. Window films will cut glare, and eliminate 99% of the sun’s damaging UV rays. This will make your school’s indoor environment more comfortable, healthier, and more conducive to learning.
- 3. In the winter, window film will act as a barrier, preventing your expensive heat from escaping through the glass.
- 4. In the hot months, if school is in session, it can cut as much as 50% of the heat gain from the sun. So if you do have air conditioning in your schools, it will need to work much less hard to achieve the temperature you’ve set it to. Many of our window film clients report needing to use their air conditioner much less.
All of this adds up to major savings for your school’s budget. Your initial investment in the window films can usually be paid back via the energy bill savings in two to three years.
So if your Denver school windows are the source of high energy bills, please contact us today for more information about the perfect way to lower those bills.
