Did you know energy costs typically account for 30% of total operating costs?

As a building owner, manager, or engineer, you’re always looking for ways to reduce your operating expenses. Energy costs typically account for 30% of total operating costs and are usually the largest single expense. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that one-third of a building’s cooling load is from solar heat gain through windows, and nearly 75% of existing windows are not energy efficient.

However, in many cases replacing the windows on a building is either not in the budget or is difficult as it would disrupt the ability to use the space while the windows were replaced. There is an alternative. Window film is a cost effective, non-disruptive way to retrofit the windows that you already have. Today’s energy saving window films can boost the performance of nearly any glazing system. This performance increase will significantly reducing energy consumption and peak demand as window film is most effective during peak demand.
