Frequently Asked Questions About Commercial Window Tinting

What are the advantages to Commercial window tinting?

Today’s commercial office buildings, store fronts, and high rises feature more glass than ever before, and although an abundance of windows is a stylish architectural choice, plain glass windows are notorious energy wasters and offer little to no solar protection. Window tint film blocks up to 99% of the sun’s harmful UV rays and reduces heat by up to 78%, which translates into incredible energy savings for commercial building owners and tenants. Business window film can also:

  • Reduce glare and eyestrain to increase comfort for building tenants, clients, and customers
  • Protect curtains, carpet, and upholstery from fading in harsh sunlight
  • Protect property from break-ins and natural disaster damage with increased glass durability
  • Translate energy savings into potential LEED credits
  • Save tenants up to 50% in cooling costs
  • Lengthen the life of HVAC equipment and lower maintenance costs

 
Is commercial window tinting dark like car window film?
 

The shading level of commercial window tint is entirely customizable, but there are several transparent film options that look virtually indistinguishable from non-tinted windows, aside from the significant reduction in glare. There are also privacy options such as window tint that appears transparent from the inside but shaded or mirrored from the outside, and decorative window film products like etched glass for added style.
 

Is commercial window film in San Diego eligible for utility rebates?
 

Many utility companies and government programs offer energy rebates for commercial window film installation, categorized as a rebate-eligible product or a “custom measure” option. Superior Window Solutions will check out the rebates in your area and assist in the application process. 
 

What kind of warranty is available for commercial window tinting?
