Affordable Energy Solutions: Window Film Helps Salt Lake City Schools Save on Energy Costs

How Window Film Helps Salt Lake City Schools Save Money

Energy conservation is critical in mitigating the impact of fossil fuels on the environment and all industries should play some part. However, conserving energy is not only a good idea for the planet but wallet-friendly as well. Limiting the use of energy or finding ways passively use less are intrinsically money savers. Which is why, for schools in the SLC area, conservation is a great idea because they are places where those “utility” dollars are sorely needed. As such, on mechanisms for schools to consider is window film which will save them copious amounts of money on utilities and has many other benefits for schools who adopt this technology as well.

The Money Saving Benefits Of Window Film For Salt Lake City Schools

Window film saves schools money in two ways. The most obvious is through lowering utility costs month in and month out. This is because over 30% of heated and cooled air escapes right through the glass windows and doors. Window film acts as insulation in those areas -trapping air in. However, it also reduces solar heat gain. This combination of actions reduces utility bills by as much as 30% or more. Which means not only greener schools but more money for school districts to put toward critical things like books, salaries, and learning tools.

Additional Benefits Of Window Film For Salt Lake City Schools

While the utility savings benefit of window film is definitely a good reason to have it applied to your Salt Lake City school, there are also numerous other benefits that come along with window film.

Things like–


  • Reduced Glare: This Helps students be more productive and free of distraction
  • Even Temperatures: Is critical for student comfort which helps them focus on learning
  • Increased Safety: When glass is treated with film it provides extra protection from accidents, thefts, and even intruders. *Although the level of safety may vary depending on the film and adhesives.
