When it comes to year-round temperature control, the first concern that comes to mind for property owners is budget. Making the final buying decision on products, such as commercial window film, that impact temperature control can be difficult. However, with the introduction of low-emissivity (low e) window film, the decision should be more clear-cut, as low e films help provide energy savings in both warm and cold weather months. Here is a quick explanation of how low e window film works and a few reasons to consider investing in it.
Glass insulating capabilities
Low e technology enhances a window’s insulating power, significantly reducing heat loss. Like standard window film, it keeps the heat out in summer months. However, what makes this revolutionary film so unique is how it keeps heat in during the winter months. The insulated window film reflects the heat back to its source, locking it inside the building. The additional layer of film essentially transforms a single-pane clear window into a dual-pane, and a dual-pane into a triple.
More annual savings
Because of its glass insulating capabilities, commercial window film that utilizes a low e coating will help create annual financial savings. It not only reduces heat loss in the winter but also reduces heat gain in the summer, in turn decreasing the operational time of a heating or cooling system. As a result, energy costs can be reduced significantly. Learn more about EnerLogic window film to better understand the substantial return on investment for quality commercial window tint.
UV and glare reduction
In addition to reducing energy expenditures, low e window film will help maintain window views and natural light sources. While standard window films are typically tinted, low e commercial window films are virtually clear. Additionally, just like standard window tint, low e film significantly reduces harmful UV rays and obstructive glare.
