A hot topic in businesses and many other venues these days is the term “carbon footprint.” You probably already have some idea of what it means, but here’s a widely accepted definition: “The total of greenhouse gas emissions produced by an individual, an event, a product or an organization generally expressed in tons of carbon dioxide. A carbon footprint for a business could be the emissions produced in the manufacture of a product or the amount of electricity consumed for its daily operation.”
We know that you value the environment as much as we do, and that’s why we want to let you know how improving your office window tint can decrease your business’s carbon footprint and impact all of the benefits or restrictions that may be imposed upon you and your business because of the environmental impact of your day-to-day operations. We all know the basics– using less energy or fuel means we are generating less pollution and reducing our negative impact on the environment. But every little thing we do to shift our behaviors can add up to make a real difference.
Apart from saving on the energy cost to run the front office of your manufacturing facility or on the costs to cool your retail store, you will be doing your part to help the environment when you use office window tint in your establishment. For example, window film can reduce energy costs associated with heating and cooling by as much as 25 – 30%. Obviously, that will quickly pay for itself!
If you are running a home-business, don’t stop reading! The EPA Energy Star Buildings Manual in the US approximates that 50% of an average home’s utility bills are wasted by heat exchange through windows without window film. We use Vista and Llumar home or office window tint films that can lower cooling expenses by turning the sun’s heat away from your building from the outside and keeping the air you paid for inside. Be kind to yourself, your business, and the environment – choose an office window film today to reduce your impact on the environment and increase the feeling that what you do each day at your work is good for the world!
