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:

LED Floodlights

  • 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.
