Therefore throughout the United States, case studies show the effectiveness of window film. Effectiveness in reducing costs and promoting energy efficiency for building owners and managers. That’s a single Midwest-based place of a national pharmacy store chain reduced the need for electrical lighting by up to 52 percent by filtering UV rays and redirecting natural light with a window film application. A notable pop-culture museum has achieved an annual average cost savings of $30,000 in reduced cooling costs from applying a solar controlling window film with ceramic or nano-technology.

“With technology improvements, window film products have become one of the easiest to carry out and most cost-effective energy efficiency measures available for commercial retrofitting. Comments from Darrell Smith, Executive Director of the IWFA.

“Professionally installed window film is an investment that provides many benefits for years to come.”

Window film provides, on average, up to 55 percent rejection of solar heat – reducing the number of hot and cold spots in a home or building while providing a more energy-efficient environment. Some films can even help to keep room heat in the winter months. By offering seven times the energy savings benefits per dollar spent in a facility when compared with full window replacement, window film is an eco and budget-friendly option while still making the needed improvement.

Window film products rating the National Fenestration Rating Council for energy performance. So by reducing solar heat gain in the summer. As well as retaining a building’s heat in the winter. So once installed, window film may offer year-round savings. So Expect about 5 to 10 percent of the facility’s total energy bill.
