If keeping your home or property warm is making your heating bills look scary, the time to identify new heating methods is now.
It’s only going to get colder and finding new ways to keep the costs down and the heat up is more important than ever. Fortunately, we are in the ideal position to help.
So impressive has the advance in window film technology been in recent history, it is now widely viewed as one of the primary methods of increasing the energy efficiency of your property, resulting in both savings to your budget and reductions in carbon footprint.
Energy Efficient Film
Energy efficient solar window film doesn’t just deliver energy savings by reducing cooling costs in summer, but by insulating your windows and reflecting heat back into the building it reduces winter heating costs too.
By reflecting away unwanted solar energy, solar window film helps to achieve a more comfortable and constant temperature within the building resulting in a reduced reliance on air conditioning units and cooling systems during the summer.
Older glazing is less efficient and allows heat to escape in winter months
With businesses throughout the UK seeking effective ways to reduce their carbon footprint, the application of energy saving film offers one of the most environmentally friendly methods of positively impacting a company’s energy performance.
In addition to the longer term benefits and warranties, window film avoids the associated waste and disposal costs of replacement glazing.
Applied directly to existing glazing, forming a highly effective barrier to solar energy, the range of films available from WF Glazing Protection encompass a variety of specifications that can assist with energy efficiency, with the most effective films rejecting up to 85% of total solar energy.
Our range of energy saving window film is available in a variety of finishes and grades, including external grade films for when an internal installation is not possible.
During winter months, inefficient windows can significantly add to heat loss and energy costs.
Typically, the U-value of single glazing is 5.88 and 2.2-2.9 for non-coated double glazing. While replacing windows with the latest energy efficient glass will dramatically improve these U-values it can be a costly and problematic exercise with very long payback periods and little return on investment.
Ecolux™ window film from SolarGard is the very latest technology combining a low-e coating with solar control properties at high visible light transmissions. Compared to low-e glazing replacements, Ecolux is a smart, sustainable option for homes and buildings with it’s 16 year warranty and significant energy and carbon savings.
