Payback Studies

Building owners and facility engineers are under increasing pressure to reduce energy consumption and improve the bottom line. Window films reduce AC loads by rejecting the solar heat gain transmitting through windows.

For every 100 square feet of window film, one ton of air conditioning is saved leading to significant savings and increased tenant comfort.

A 2011 DOE report identified energy window films as a ‘first tier technology’ with an approximate 3 year payback for buildings. Window films ranked as the building envelope retro-fit with the highest probability of success and have an exponentially better ROI than replacement windows.
