You’ve probably seen some beautiful glass facades in the Springfield area. The most notable is Hammons Tower, AKA “Darth Vader,” and its darkly tinted glass edifice. Tinted commercial and residential glass not only looks great, but it also saves you money over the long run. Springfield Glass Company explains in today’s blog.

Tinting for residential or commercial glass helps regulate temperatures in winter and summer. Window tinting actually helps keep heat inside your building during the winter months because it’s an additional layer in your window. As much as 30 percent of residential heating costs literally go out the window due to poor windows in homes. Window tinting can help with those costs.
During the summer, window tinting can keep out as much as 80 percent of the sun’s heat, thereby reducing your building’s cooling costs. It usually costs more money to cool a building compared to heating it.
Protects Interior Spaces
The sun’s ultraviolet rays cause degradation over time. Think flooring, carpeting, furniture, works of art, textiles, photographs, and just about anything the sunlight touches. The damaging effects of UV rays are permanent and cumulative. Over time, you’ll have to replace the damaged items. Tinting for residential and commercial glass can prevent UV damage, so your interior space truly lasts a lifetime.
Improved Health of Residents and Employees
Just as the sun’s rays can harm your skin outside, the same is true inside. Reducing the glare from sunlight can improve dry skin, keep skin conditions at bay, and help people’s eyesight due to less glare from the sun. Better health means lower healthcare costs for your family and employees, which saves you money over time.
The longer you own your home or business, the more money you can potentially save with tinted residential or commercial glass.
Other factors also come into play with how much money you save, including:
- Efficiency of your HVAC system
- Building insulation
- Age of the building
- Temperature settings
- Value of interior items (carpeting, furniture, art)
- How many windows are in the structure
