As a business owner, you’re always looking for ways to save money. By eliminating some of your supply and operating expenses, you free up funds that can be spent on growing your business.

Though you may not realize it, one of the greatest expenses contributing to your operating costs is your property’s energy usage. In the United States, commercial buildings account for about 40% of our nation’s total energy consumption.

One of the easiest ways to improve the energy efficiency of your property is by installing window film. Below, we’ve discussed some of the different types of energy efficient window films available for Miami businesses.

Types of Energy Efficient Window Film for your Business

Window films have come a long way in the past 10 years. Today, there are hundreds of different styles of commercial window film on the market, ranging in design and appearance. While it would be impossible to list all of the different types, here are some of the more popular energy efficient window films that businesses are using today:

  • Spectrally selective window film – These window films work by filtering out some parts of the electromagnetic spectrum. Specifically, they block UV and infrared rays. The benefit of this is that they prevent fading and heat gain without reducing indoor brightness.
  • Low-e window film – Low-E window films have become popular because of their year-round benefits. Instead of just saving money during the summer, these films are beneficial through all four seasons. They block heat during the hotter months and trap it in during the winter.
  • Reflective window film – This is perhaps the most popular option for energy efficient window film for Miami commercial buildings. Reflective films have a shiny, mirror-like surface. This gives them the ability to provide privacy and shield building contents from the outside. They also provide excellent heat rejection, which not only makes buildings more comfortable, but also saves money.
