Sal's House of Tint provides energy efficiency solutions through innovative solar control window films. We work alongside commercial property owners and contractors to alleviate problems such as excessive heat, glare, utility expenses, fading, safety concerns, or the lack of privacy. All of our products block 99% of damaging UV rays, and are recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation.
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that one-third of a building's cooling load is due to solar heat gain coming through untreated windows. Solar control window films reject incoming heat and equalize hot spots. This increases the efficiency and lifespan of air conditioning systems, and reduces overall energy consumption. Many of our products are designed to minimize heat loss during winter months as well. The added insulation translates to year-round savings, reduced carbon emissions, and quick payback periods. Providing a comfortable environment for employees and patrons increases productivity, moral, and leads to a more favorable bottom-line.
Excessive glare can make computer monitors and other points of sale unusable during certain parts of the day. Reducing glare alleviates eye strain and encourages a more continuous work flow. Retail patrons will also appreciate a more inviting environment and spend more time shopping.
Radiation from the sun fades storefront displays, merchandise, and furnishings. It is also associated with about 90% of all skin cancers. These UV rays are sneaky, and make their way into buildings through untreated glass. Window film provides a protective barrier, blocking 99% of UV rays. We carry a wide range of products, including a completely clear film for those wanting invisible protection.
We choose to work with film manufacturers that operate with sustainability and nature in mind. In many cases, the products we use become carbon neutral within the first two months of installation. That means the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions resulting from manufacturing, distribution, installation, and disposal are offset by energy savings and reduced GHG emissions. Our LEED-certified products provide up to nine points for those looking to attain project certification through the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). Window films provide a significant reduction in energy demand on a long term basis. Remember...The cleanest, most environmentally friendly energy is the energy not produced.
