In 1992, we received a call from a property manager that had a customer in a commercial building in Pensacola. The four-story building, located behind University Mall now known as University Plaza, was unique because the Northeast corner of the building is facing due east. This was problematic because the North and East sides of the building received heat and glare in the mornings and the South and West sides of the building also received heat and glare in the afternoon.
We were invited to show our product, but we were quickly dismissed by the HVAC company. Six months later the building owner called me and requested a meeting with me. The building owner spent $156,000 on new AC controls and the tenants that occupied the top two floors were still complain of excessive heat with no change.
The solution was to find a window film that would reduce the amount of infrared heat transferring through the tinted glass with bronze frames. This was important because tinted glass and bronze frames absorb heat which is usually under calculated in HVAC design. We chose a window film called S-20. This film reduced the amount of heat by 79% and only absorbed 33% of the Sun’s energy.
The results were overwhelming for the building owner. The cost of installing and retrofitting this office building was $14,000. This took about two weeks with no disruption from the tenants staff and employees. The first month savings was more than $1100 for owners electric bill. The payback was a little over a year. This solved the owners issues with the tenants. We have been installing commercial and residential window tinting for over 37 years. We can help with your office storefront or building.
