The latest in window film innovation has been introduced by Performance Films, the manufacturer of Llumar and Vista window films. This film may not be for all, however residential and commercial opportunities are significant especially for those with single pane glass and are considering a more cost effective alternative to window replacement.
The EnerLogic™ features a patent-pending, low-E coating. EnerLogic window film adds up to 92-percent more insulating power to existing commercial and residential windows. EnerLogic window film has excellent insulating performance compared to other window films available. In summer, heat from the sun is reflected away from windows, easing the stress on air-conditioning. In winter, radiant heat from heating systems is directed back into the room, reducing energy use and improving comfort.
Features of the new product include the following:
Energy Efficiency – The patent-pending technology of EnerLogic window film effectively transforms the insulating power of single-pane windows into double-pane; and double-pane windows into triple-pane. The result is a significant increase in window efficiency at a fraction of window replacement cost.
Quick Payback – Windows typically account for 15 – 30 percent of a commercial building’s heating costs, and frequently more than 30 percent of cooling costs. EnerLogic window film is a low-cost, high-return technology that compares favorably to other energy-saving measures both in terms of energy efficiency and cost savings. In fact, EnerLogic is said to outperform most alternatives in terms of simple payback – averaging just 2.75 years.
