Here in Miami, the sun is no stranger. Commercial spaces here get a lot of great light and are just plain better places to work, play, eat and shop in. Not to mention, they make spaces feel brighter and more welcoming, Therefore, making use of any natural light you get in your commercial space is a good way to boost business and employee morale. However, the issue with windows and light is the heat that comes attached to them. The trade-off for getting that lovely Miami sunlight that fuels commerce is–the heat could be crippling it at the same time. Your main options to combat the heat that comes with the sun are not very attractive,
- Running your A/C: This option involves running your HVAC constantly and at very low temperatures. This not only overworks these systems but, in Miami commercial spaces especially, get incredibly expensive.
- Installing Blinds and/or Curtains: This is a common method and one commercial space often thinks is low-cost. It is not. Blinds and curtains on a commercial scale are costly and need to be replaced frequently. To say nothing of the fact that they do little to stop heat and retard the natural light that makes Miami spaces so gorgeous.
Neither of these solutions to the heat transferring through your Miami windows into your commercial spaces is very good. A third option, heat-reducing window film is the best, and here is why.
Why Heat Reducing Window Film is the Best Solution to the Miami Sun
As mentioned the sun is a lovely element to add to any commercial space but it also causes issues like:
- Loss of merchandise
- Damage to commercial interiors
- More employee sick days
- Lower employee productivity
- Loss of customers
Whether you run a Miami hotel, retail space, restaurant, or office, this is problematic to you. Therefore, an alternative to the two choices above should be heat-reducing window film. It is spectrally selective so it filters out the UV rays that cause heat and damage while still letting in the lovely Miami sun. It also makes temperatures more even so your HVAC doesn’t have to work so hard. Lastly, it saves you money on energy bills, which every business owner loves!
Window Film For a Better Miami Workplace
