Reject the sun’s heat with 3M™ Window Films and reduce the cost of keeping your building comfortable. An estimated 33% of cooling expenses are due to solar heat gain from windows. That’s why cost-effective, energy-saving technologies like 3M™ Window Films are crucial to protecting your bottom line — by rejecting the sun’s heat to keep your space at an even, moderate temperature.
The Department of Energy considers window film a top-tier technology for energy conservation with one of the fastest paybacks — approximately three years. Upgrading your windows with 3M™ Window Film can help you achieve significant savings. You could save $1 to $2 per square foot of film installed, or as much as 19 kWh per square foot of glass. Building owners around the world are already taking advantage of these savings — isn’t it time you did too?
Taking control of your environment with 3M™ Window Films is better for our environment. By rejecting the heat of the sun, you use less energy. By keeping your window treatments open, you use less electric lighting and save on energy costs. By upgrading your existing windows, you’re keeping them out of the landfill.
There are many energy conservation technologies available to help you save money. It is essential to choose the right products and complete your upgrades in a sequential order so you can maximize your profits. Often, envelope upgrades (such as window film) are overlooked, and owners jump right to optimizing their HVAC system. If you create a more efficient building envelope before HVAC improvements, you may be able to downsize your HVAC equipment in the future, enabling you to reach the maximum possible performance for your profits.
If you install 3M™ Window Films, you can benefit from energy savings and so much more.
