BMD Materials Presents: The Power Savings of Window Coverings


The modern office building often boasts expansive glass facades, allowing natural light to flood the interiors. While this architectural choice does wonders for aesthetics and ambiance, it can also introduce challenges regarding energy efficiency.

Thankfully, BMD Materials offers a solution: high-quality light-filtering window coverings. These aren’t just a design feature; they are tools for significant energy savings. Let's delve into the numbers.

The Numbers Don’t Lie

  • Cooling Costs: A study by the U.S. Department of Energy suggests that about 76% of sunlight that falls on standard double-pane windows enters to become heat. By utilizing light filtering window coverings, offices can cut this unwanted heat gain, thereby reducing the demand on air conditioning. This can result in energy savings of up to 30% on cooling alone.

  • Lighting Costs: With BMD’s window coverings, offices can optimize the amount of natural light they let in, potentially reducing the need for artificial lighting during daylight hours. The Energy Information Administration reports that lighting can account for up to 17% of a building’s electricity usage. Imagine shaving a significant chunk off that portion of your bill!

  1. Enhance Worker Productivity: Natural light is known to improve mood and efficiency.
  2. Protect Office Assets: It prevents the harmful effects of direct sunlight on office furniture and equipment.
  3. Increase Privacy: Especially important for conference rooms and upper-level offices.
