How Window Film Can Help Denver Schools, Colleges and Universities Save Money on Energy Costs

Energy Saving Window Film For Denver City Schools

Energy costs are high these days and if it seems like they are getting higher it is because they are.  This causes problems for all sorts of spaces here in Denver both residential and commercial. One type of space that is dramatically affected by the rise in energy prices is schools, colleges, and universities.   From the University of Denver to Metropolitan State University–places of higher learning here in Colorado and feeling the squeeze of tighter and tighter budgets because of skyrocketing utility costs. But, there is a powerful solution for these types of learning places from elementary to university–window film.

The Energy Saving Window Film Benefits For Schools


Schools and Universities here in Denver and all across the country tend to have a lot of windows this means high demand on their HVAC systems. Which is why window film is a great way for them to save massive amounts of money via reduced energy costs each year. The two main factors at play here are a significant reduction in the amount of visible and infrared light absorbed or reflected by the film and lower HVAC costs.

Window Film For Solar Heat Gain On Windows In Denver Schools


When infrared light is reflected off of windows a building uses less energy.  Window films are key to this reduction in solar heat gain–in some cases taking it down by 80%.  Spectrally selective films are even better because they reduce solar heat gain in the summer–therefore lowering A/C bills but also trap that same heat in the winter–lowering heating bills in the winter.  This powerful combination means a huge reduction (around 25% -45%) on school energy bills.

Lower HVAC Maintenance Costs  For Denver Schools With Window Film


As you can imagine, when heated and cooled air is trapped inside HVAC systems work considerably less frequently.  This reduction in the systems switching on and off or running constantly extends the life of the systems. Since the cost of repairing and maintaining large commercial HVAC systems is so very high, this puts quite a bit of money back in the pockets of schools to use for other things.  So, by stopping the problem of chronic HVAC maintenance where it starts, at the windows, schools, colleges, and universities here in Denver, save thousands each and every year and have more money in the budget for learning!
