Global warming is pushing us towards extreme climate change, and as we have seen this year, is raising the average temperature day by day. Massachusetts has set in place plans to reach net-zero emissions by 2050. What does net-zero mean? “Net zero emissions’ refers to achieving an overall balance between greenhouse gas emissions produced and greenhouse gas emissions taken out of the atmosphere.” -climatecouncil.org
Buildings and transportation produce around 99% of Boston’s carbon emissions alone, steps have been put in place to try and reduce that number. For example, large building owners will be forced to report their energy use to the state and must show that they are taking steps toward creating a more energy efficient building. Hefty fines may be put in place for building owners that don’t comply.
The easiest way to reduce emissions in buildings is to reduce the burning of fossil fuels. A huge portion of the energy used in commercial buildings goes toward HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air condition) systems. The cheapest and most effective solution to this is window film.
Window film, also referred to as window tint, is a retrofit glass product installed to the interior of your glass. Film technologies have been proven to be extremely energy efficient with their heat rejection properties. Rejecting solar heat from entering your building during hotter months and rejecting heat from exiting through your windows in winter months, installing film enables you to lower the emissions used for temperature control in your building. With a naturally cool (or warm) building, you won’t have to change the thermometer and force your HVAC systems to work harder to get to a desirable temperature. Not to mention, window film saves you on average 30% a year on utility bills and pays itself off within 3 years of installation!
Film is a great solution to creating an energy efficient building, and with its 15+ year commercial warranty it is also a very safe option for owners. It will help you gain LEED points toward your building, and it is 91% less expensive than replacing windows. With climate change bills being passed, building owners should consider this move toward creating energy efficient windows at a cheap cost. Window film will be extremely helpful in lowering emissions across the board, get a quote today and see how much it can help you!
