What Type of Energy Savings Can I Expect From Window Films for My Home or Office?
HERE’S THE QUICK ANSWER TO THIS COMMON QUESTION:
It is obvious and well-known that window films on any home, office, or commercial building can have dramatic impacts on savings on energy bills.
When the weather is warm, window film can reduce air conditioning costs and save on lighting costs by reducing solar heat gain, while still letting in natural light.
When it’s cold outside, window film can retain interior heat, saving on heating costs.
It is an investment in your home or business that makes it more carbon-neutral, greener, and substantially more energy-efficient.
But just how much savings can you generate? Obviously, every home is different – your actual results will vary depending on the types of windows, the exposure to the sun, the geography, and the climate. No matter what your actual conditions, you will receive some savings, making window films a compelling investment.
What the Window Film Industry Associations Say About Energy Savings:
In existing commercial structures, the energy savings achieved by window film can offer a payback in less than two years, or up to a 70% ROI—depending on factors such as construction, location, and type of film used.
Window films can block up to 86% of the sun’s heat.
A significant reduction of the sun’s heat aids in a building’s energy efficiency as less energy is needed from the HVAC cooling system – saving up to 30% of a building’s cooling costs.
Pricing for window films varies depending on the type of Window Film you select for your project but no matter what, you are likely to cover the cost of your project in 1-3 years by 30% or more energy savings. Some earn back even faster!
