Window Films are Low Hanging Fruit for Building Efficiency Gains

Nice article written in Energy Manager Today that discusses the fact that improving efficiency of windows in a building is one of the most cost-effective ways to drive better energy efficiency. The article discussed window films as being one of the retrofit options available to significantly upgrade the efficiency of existing windows. Michael Mancini from Madico, the line of window films that Midwest Tinting carries, was quoted in the article saying the following:
There is little downside to window film and other approaches that increase the efficiency of installed windows. Much is gained, and often the work and expense required is minimal. Michael Mancini, the Director of Marketing for Madico, offered a list of window film benefits at Facility Executive. First and foremost is saving money. Up to 30% of any building’s cooling and heating load is through windows. Installing window film reduces the stress on a facility’s HVAC system. Many films block up to 80 percent of the sun’s heat, helping to cut cooling costs. Professionally installed window film can also reduce a facility’s heating needs in the winter by helping to maintain interior warmth. Over time, window film goes a long way in conserving energy for facilities of all sizes.
Mancini offers other reasons, such as window film’s shatterproof qualities and the protection it provides from UV radiation. For an energy manager, however, saving money by increased efficiency is the key.
