12 Features that make Reflective Window Films green
Reflective window films are green mainly because of their energy saving features.
Because solar heat gain through windows accounts for nearly 40% of a building’s cooling requirements, studies have shown that inefficient windows can waste anywhere from 25% to 35% of a building’s energy budget. So while glass clearly has interesting and beautiful architectural properties, it can also have a dramatic effect on the amount of energy required to keep a building comfortable.
However, there are also other reasons why reflective window films are green. Here are twelve of them:
- Reduces waste – 25% – 35% less building air conditioning energy waste.
- Reduced equipment maintenance – Allows air conditioning equipment to work less.
- Landfill reduction – fewer window replacements and longer air conditioning equipment life.
- Improves returns on investment – Air conditioning equipment lasts years longer
- Greater comfort – Improved indoor occupant well-being.
- Increased productivity – Indoor occupants have a cooler environment.
- Increases durability – reduces UV damage to carpets, drapes and furniture.
- Reduced maintenance cost – Less damage to interiors means less UV protection consumables.
- Increases safety – Prevents flying glass shards when windows break.
- Greater security – Increases privacy and makes forced entry harder and slower.
- Saves money – Cheaper than thermal windows.
- Recyclable – Recycles just like plastic
