Window Film: The Best Protection From The Harsh Texas Sun
Texas is a great place to live. It’s bigger, bolder and well, unfortunately–brighter. If you live in Austin you understand how bright the Texas sun can be during the winter and summer alike. If you don’t live in Austin and are just staying here in one of our many beautiful hotels, you too probably understand the annoyance of the incredibly hot, glare from the Texas sun as evident in your hotel windows. Although the benefits of window film are ubiquitous among large and small, commercial and residential buildings alike, an especially strong case can be made for window tint on hotels. The video case study below on a Hyatt Hotel, right here in Texas, is a good example of how hotels can benefit from energy efficient windows.
Here is a recap of the Hyatt Hotel Case Study as seen in the video above:
SITUATION: The hotel built in 1972, offers guests a 360-degree view of the gorgeous Houston skyline in its notable rotating restaurant. But, high operating cost and guests complaints about unbearable room temperatures were interfering with the high-end experience the Hyatt Hotel wanted to provide.
SOLUTION: An efficiency company hired by the Hyatt teamed up with a local Enerlogic broker company to, not only to install Enerlogic window film on the hotel for energy efficiency and temperature control, but also to measure and prove the results of the Enerlogic application.
RESULT: Enerlogic Low-E film was applied because of its superior, four seasons, energy conservation qualities. It performed wonderfully as expected. An extensive sub-metering system, installed to specifically measure the vast amount of data from this project showed a 23% less energy for cooling the hotel and 25% less energy for heating. This translated to hundreds of thousands of dollars of monetary savings each year!
