Save energy and go green with solar control window film

Saving energy and being environmentally friendly has fast become a top priority for corporations and businesses within the UK.

The impacts of global warming are being full understood and meteorologists are predicting rising temperatures in the coming decades. So it makes sense that the issue of how to effectively cool buildings has become a bit of a talking point. To address green issues facing UK businesses, legislation now requires companies listed on the main market London stock exchange to disclose, as part of their annual reports, their entire organisations levels of greenhouse gas emissions. The first legally binding framework was created by the Carbon Reduction Commitment. The long-term solution aims to cut carbon emissions with financial penalties for poor performers.

With the cost of energy rising and more focus placed on eco-friendly solutions, businesses are looking for alternative ways to tackle the problem.

What’s the alternative?

Solar control film, such as heat reduction film, could be one of the easiest ways for the majority of UK firms to address this problem and reduce their carbon footprint.  Solar control window film reduces solar heat gain by up to 86%. This means rooms are kept cooler, without the need for overusing air conditioning units which can be costly and can have a negative effect on the environment. The application of window film will stabilise the temperature at which a room operates and in turn help to reduce the strain created on air conditioning units.

The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) in California is one of the world’s top energy research centres has also recognised that one of the most cost-effective options is adding window film to buildings.

If you’re looking to go green – solar control window film could help you do that.

Solar control window film is quick, simple and relatively cheap to install which makes it an attractive solution to business owners. And not only does window film help with energy-related savings, it has a range of other benefits too. Window film can be used to reduce glare, UV fading and improve the privacy, and safety and security of windows and buildings.
