As cold weather streaks through Philadelphia, New York, and Boston, heating bills will rise as rapidly as the temperatures fall. Finding cost-effective solutions to mitigate increasing heating costs and overwhelming changes to the interior comfort of your office or home can be challenging. Rest assured, Solar Gard Ecolux 70 Low-E Window Film offers both immediacy and economy when compared to other more costly, labor intensive alternatives to making your home or building more energy efficient and comfortable during the winter — and the summer!
The U.S. Department of Energy states that heat loss and heat gain through windows and doors are responsible for 25-30% of residential heating and cooling energy usage. Studies have shown that windows manufactured with Low-E coatings or retrofitted with Low-E Window Film can reduce such energy loss (or excess energy usage) attributable to heat transfer through windows by as much as 30-50%.
Determining the level of heat loss or heat gain through your windows and doors can begin with a simple audit of the type of glass used in your building or home. Monolithic, or single-paned, glazing is often very inefficient and leaves homeowners and building owners exposed to increased energy usage from heat transfer. Insulated, or double-paned, glazing systems often times increase the insulating value of window systems, but the absence of energy efficient coatings, such as Low-E coatings, can leave your windows and doors exposed to heat loss and heat gain from the temperature variance between the inside and outside of your space.
Because window replacement is both costly and cumbersome, Solar Gard Ecolux 70 Low-E Window Film is an optimal solution to retain man-made interior heat during the winter and to reduce solar infiltration during the summer. Thus creating improved comfort and utility cost savings month after month.
