Case Study: Energy Efficient Technologies For Commercial Properties

CaseStudy_BOA_IMG_5479(4)

Seventy percent of energy used in the U.S. is consumed by commercial properties. Forty percent of this energy used is to manage cooling costs resulting from infrared heat coming through windows. Bank of America’s downtown San Francisco high rise data center building which has 22,000 square feet of glass was experiencing this problem. Faced with complaints by new tenants that occupied three of the buildings floors, the Facility Management and Engineering Team was looking for a solution to cut the heat coming through the windows.

The Facility Management and Engineering Team was introduced to Hüper Optik’s single-layer Energy Saver Ceramic 35, and patented dual layer ceramic 30 as the best solution to their specific building’s needs. The combination of two Hüper Optik Commercial Window Tints delivered a more comfortable environment and temperature for the tenants of the Bank of America building. The views were preserved negating the need for hard window coverings, while cutting infrared rays (a major cause of heat) by over 80 percent. Engineering has reported no further complaints from the unhappy tenants and they are very happy with the results.

Advanced Technology for Home Window Tinting

Hüper Optik films use advanced technology  to help separate the good sun rays from the bad. This is the process of spectrally selective coatings. The spectrally selective technology lets in all the good visible light rays, but reflects the damaging UV rays and the Infrared rays that bring in the heat. This process was part of the advanced development from the NASA Space Shuttle development program. We take this same technology and embed these particles in a coating that we apply to your existing windows. This technology has resulted in many industry awards for advancement, energy savings and sustainability.

It is this advancement in technology that has led Huper Optik to be:

1st Patented Nano-Ceramic Window Film

3x more Infrared rejection

4x less reflective

13 ˚C Cooler

25x more durable than competing films

True Ceramic Products for Your Commercial Window Film Needs

When it comes to making the best of your commercial space, look to Hüper Optik nanotechnology commercial window film to deliver the utmost in commercial and aesthetic appeal.

Windows are an essential aspect of today’s architecture; they bring warmth and life into any interior by illuminating with natural light and providing a clear view to the outside world. Unfortunately, they also let in unwelcome heat, glare and damaging ultraviolet rays. Air conditioning bills increase due to the excessive heat load. Most metallic or dyed window films employ conventional technologies and do not provide optimal solar control. They cut out light, turning the interior dull and gloomy, and are internally reflective, making them difficult to see through.

Hüper Optik heralds a new era, revolutionizing the market with its advanced nanotechnology window films. These films complement today’s growing demands for large architectural glass structures with their excellent solar control performance, high clarity and low reflectivity. These superb heat rejection properties also play a vital role in conserving energy in buildings.

Six Easy Steps to Help You Select the Best Window Film for Your Car, Home or Office

So you’ve decided to invest in energy efficiency through window film….great! Here are a few
helpful tips to ensure that you get the highest ROI, and the best product for your home, car or office.

1. Review product specifications and cross check them with the National Fenestration Rating
Council (NFRC): an independent rating authority that is not affiliated with any window film
manufacturer or distributor. Examples of product specifications include: Visible Light
Transmission, Solar Heat Gain Coefficient, and Glare Reduction.

2. Determine what solutions you want window film to provide. Do you need to reduce fading
and glare? Do you need to save energy, or look at a less expensive option than glass
replacement? Be candid about your expectations, so the company you choose can exceed
them.

3. Use social media as a resource, while you research products online. What can you find out
about the product or company in the blogosphere? A great deal, both positive and negative,
but this is all part of determining the best window film choice for you.

4. Be prepared with a list of questions, before your estimate appointment. Ask each window
film company to bring and install samples on windows that get direct sun, and note how
willing the representative is to go into detail regarding the film. You want a company that will
consult with you on the right film for your energy goals, not focus on just the sales
transaction.

5. Ask for references. Whether you are considering window film for your home or business,
before you select a company, ask for commercial or residential references. Reputable
companies are happy to do this.

6. Ask about any tax incentives, federal, state or local, that you are eligible for with the
installation of window film. These and other incentives from your utility company could help
pay for the cost of window film installation, giving you a better ROI.

Wherever we go East, West, North or South we can see the ever increasing popularity of Window Tinting. We can see it in many vehicles, homes, commercial buildings, marine vessels, government offices, museums, scientific and research centers as well. The popularity of window tinting is so prevalent today for many reasons some of which include energy reduction which saves money and reduces air conditioning usage, protection of valuables inside, reducing glare, safety and security.

Auto Window Tinting The first known application of window tinting a couple of decades ago was in the auto industry. It was in this industry that window tinting was first known for its application. But as year passes by this window tinting idea was brought to homes and commercial buildings. Even today, Auto Window Tinting is still the big market and has the highest demand to the window film industry. We seldom see a car with a window that is not tinted in some areas of the country because today a car with no tinted window is like walking along the road with nothing on.

Home Window Tinting The glass window has now become an art form for many homes. With a glass window occupants can see the surroundings of their house and be able to see the beauty of their garden, a beautiful view of the water or perhaps the green forest at a distant. But without a Home Window Tinting Film from Huper Optik, an unprotected piece of glass also poses the dangerous penetration from the heat of the sun inside the house that can cause the build up of stagnant warm that will increase the air condition load, leading to a higher power bill. Also the damage from the UV rays that come into unprotected glass damaging the homes floors, walls, furniture and artwork.

Commercial Window Tinting Today commercial buildings are now welcoming and enjoying the benefits of glass windows and walls. With a glass window and wall in commercial space, by passers can see the products and services of every businesses. To add protection to the business commercial window tinting has become popular especially for high rise building in order to protect the occupants from the heat of the Sun while enjoying the view from the inside. Another benefit to the commercial application is the fact that a reduction of air conditioning usage is also an increase in the properties value making Huper Optik Commercial Window Tinting a wise investment for the owners of these structures.

Security Window Film Since security and protection is the essence of window tinting, security film is designed to hold the splinters of the glass together in cases of breakage and be able to withstand the attempted break in by intruders. Not all window films are designed for this purpose so you have to ask your Huper Optik dealer for thisSecurity Window Film so that they can advise you based on the need for your vehicle, home of office space. The popularity of window tinting for protection from the probing public eye as well as the possible break in of burglars is increasing both in the public and private sector as well in various industries.

We can no longer deny the popularity of Window Film applications that is why you should call your nearest Huper Optik Window Film dealer in your area so that you can start experiencing the benefit that this technology can offer to your car, home and office space.

Cost reduction through Hüper Optik commercial window film

In modern building design today using a product like Hüper Optik Commercial Window Films is vital due to the cost or specifically the higher cost of operations to a business, this is the number one concern of any business entity today; whether it is a multi – billion dollar or a small sized corporation, the higher costs are equal to the reduction of the profitability to the operation overall. Cost is being defined nowadays as essential or non-essential, fixed or variable, uncontrollable or controllable. Wherever the cost may fall into the categories mentioned above determines the management decision to reduce, maintain or augment the cost.

Commercial buildings owned by small and large corporations are not exempt from the effects of the intense heat of the Sun that we are experiencing in this era of the 21st Century. Higher Air Conditioning Costs and Electric Bills are considered to be one of the major costs in the Financial Performance Report of every business entity. Now the question is whether electricity is an essential cost to the continuing operations of every business. Without a doubt every human being with common sense would answer that it is indeed a necessary cost and there is no argument on that.

Although Electricity is an essential cost, it is a variable and controllable cost. Since it is controllable it can be manipulated so that it can be reduced. One of the best ways to reduce it is to lessen the air conditioning cost. In most commercial buildings, air conditioning costs are so high especially if stagnant humid air is sucked into the building through the heat of the Sun that penetrates the building. Additionally, if the windows are not coated with an appropriate window film that rejects or deflects 99% of the UV rays from the Sun that causes stagnant heat inside the building. When there is more stagnant humid air inside the building more energy will be utilized by the air conditioning units to cool down the many spaces of the building.

Hüper Optik Commercial Window Film Technology not only helps but it is the best option when it comes to keeping the heat of the Sun that penetrates inside the building. This window film is a product of well studied research and development that resulted in the production of a window films that rejects infrared and UV rays from the Sun by up to 99%. The window film�s TSER or the Total Solar Energy Rejected causes a lower cooling load of the air conditioning units; this fact will cause substantial savings to the business and the ROI is relatively short term which may vary depending on the area of the country you reside in.

This German Technology also protects the occupants of the building from harmful infrared radiation of the Sun. Besides it also preserves the natural color of the furnishings and interior decorations of the building as well as improves the window�s shatter resistance, thereby making it safer for every building occupant.

Home window tinting is no longer discretionary, but necessary

Sometimes it is hard to distinguish which is discretionary and which is necessary. When we speak of Necessary in the context of Home Window Tinting, we mean that it is essential. Essential in the sense that without it, we cannot be safe from the harmful effect of the intense heat of the Sun and its UV rays that causes skin cancer, a humid home or office environment, high air- conditioning costs, home interior decor damage and other worst effect of the destructive heat and UV rays from the Sun.

Now the question is, are we really safe from the destructive heat of the Sun everyday even without a window tint film installed in our house? Based on the statement of the Hughston Health Alert, there are approximately 175 to 1,250 deaths caused by the heat of the Sun every year in the U.S. The appalling reality is that there is a lack of knowledge today on when and how these injuries happen. How they can be treated is another issue of these heat deaths.

We know and in fact we already feel and experience the intense heat of the Sun every day, and we don’t want our family to be exposed to this danger especially when they are at home, because if there is a place that we consider to be safe, it should be our home. When our home is filled with stagnant humid air due to the heat of the Sun that penetrates inside our house, then cooling becomes less effective. When this happens it poses risks to our health.

With this health issue being raised nowadays due to the extremely intense heat from the Sun, Huper Optik Window Film Technology has responded to the need to keep our home safe from the dreadful heat of the Sun. Huper Optik has created a window film based on nano-technology that resulted in a smarter solar control resolution; a result that even surpasses the expectation of comfort and security by every homeowner and real estate holder. On the other hand, this modern window film technology offers a simple and fast installation that reduces the average cost of installation compared to other window films available on the market.

Nano-ceramic Huper Optik Window Film reduces the infra red build up in homes and decreases the UV rays penetration into our house that causes fading of colors in our home interiors decor and build up of humidity inside our house. With this non reflective window film the view from the outside during the day is obscured making us more secure from the public view. With a controlled and lesser humidity build up in our home there is a lower cooling load on our air conditioning unit making our air conditioning costs even lower from when there is no Huper Optik Window Film installed on our home windows.

When things become necessary, it is not enough for you to be convinced by the fact. But you have to experience it and see the difference Home Window Film can give to you and your family at home. Act now and call us to put you in contact with your nearest Huper Optik Dealer.
