Save money on operating costs
Hotel window film is a terrific option for hotels, motels, resorts, conference centers, and even bed and breakfasts looking to save some money on their overhead. Specifically, we are talking about energy efficiency hotel window film and the effect it has on heating and cooling costs.
If you own or manage a hotel, you already know how much money you are paying out each month for heating or cooling costs. You already know that energy costs seem to go up each year, and there doesn’t seem to be anything you can do about it. And you already know that your guests waste a lot of money leaving the lights, the heat, or the air conditioning on when they are not even in the room. Truth is, there’s nothing much you can do about it. (Although we have seen hotels with signs near the door to each room asking guests to make sure the lights are out, at least.)
Hotel window film gives you an advantage in two different ways. Let’s start with the way it can save you money on air conditioning costs in the summer. Heat gain through hotel windows is one of the main reasons rooms become so hot in the summer. But with the installation of hotel window film, as much as 50 percent of that heat gain is blocked. This means the rooms do not get as hot and your guests will not need anywhere as much air conditioning to stay comfortable. The result is lowered air conditioning costs for your hotel.
In the winter, energy efficiency hotel window film can also save you money on heating costs as well. It does this by holding the heat in the room, whereas with untreated glass a certain percent leaks out or is conducted out through the glass window panes. By keeping the heat inside, the hotel rooms stay warmer and cozier with less output necessary from the furnace. And the result is lowered heating bills, overall.
So energy efficiency hotel window film can save a hotel money year round. It’s a fantastic investment for huge lobby windows, conference room windows, and restaurant windows as well. And to add even more benefit, hotel window film can block glare and as much as 99 percent of the sun’s damaging UV rays that can cause your hotel’s furnishings to fade and look shabby before their time.
Hotel window film is a great investment that will pay for itself via energy bill savings over a few short years . . . then the savings will be all yours. For more information about our line of high-performance energy efficiency hotel window films, please contact Scottish Window Tinting today.
