Energy Efficient Windows
Window film is an inexpensive and immediate solution for a building’s energy efficiency – here’s why:
Glazing can account for 87% of building envelope heat gain (Building envelope being walls, windows, doors, floors, roof) and 49% of building envelope heat loss (Australian Window Association). People can spend thousands $ on new, high performing windows (e.g. double glazing) without realising they can apply a Low E window film to their existing windows at a fraction of the cost, for comparable results.
Solar Window Film can reject as much as 80% solar energy – equal to the highest performing glass (Window Film Association Australia and New Zealand WFAANZ). These results are amazing. Yet even better, Low E Window Film can improve the winter insulating performance of a clear, single window pane by up to 92% equivalent to a base level double glazed unit (support data available from WFAANZ).
Could these results be obtained for your home or business property?
