Energy Savings with Window Film

August 23, 2012

Window tinting is an effective building envelope solution, and can help reduce solar heat gain and utility costs.

Energy efficiency is a cost saving investment that most businesses are tuning into. And according to a new report by the International Window Film Association (IWFA), installing window films on homes and businesses is the way to go, especially if it’s an older building.

The study was commissioned by the IWFA and conducted by ConSol and compared installing window film to several traditional energy saving techniques. Researchers found that installing window film on new homes and businesses did not perform as well as other equipment, such as efficient lighting.

However, when it comes to older buildings, “the savings per cost of adding film to windows outperformed all other energy saving measures.” Retrofitting older buildings to become energy efficient is an investment, and window film usually has a return on investment of less than two years.

Window tinting is an effective building envelope solution, and can help reduce solar heat gain, and reduces air conditioning costs and lighting bills, all while letting in natural light without harsh UV exposure.
