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.
3M™ Low-E Window Films are designed to retain heat during the winter and cool air during the summer so you can save on heating and cooling costs all year round. These films also help provide increased insulation performance, much like upgrading a single-pane to a double-pane window, and a double-pane to a triple-pane window.
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.
By eliminating hot spots, rejecting the sun's heat and reducing glare, 3M™ Window Films can help building managers conserve energy and save on heating and cooling costs year round.
As of May 1, 2011, New York Local Law 84 (NY LL84) requires any building over 50,000 square feet to submit an annual energy benchmark or face a $2,000 fine. This data is then publicly disclosed so that prospective tenants can compare buildings' energy usage, allowing for more informed decisions about the costs of renting a building space.
With typical ROIs of less than three years, building owners and managers all over North America have discovered the cost savings associated with 3M™ Window Films. Plus, with utility rebates through Con Edison, 3M™ Certified Dealer Installers have completed projects with payback as short as one year.
And that’s the point. 3M™ Window Film provides nearly invisible protection from the harsh effects of the sun. Like rejecting up to 97% of heat-producing IR rays and up to 99% of damaging UV rays. You eliminate hot spots, save on energy and protect the people and things you love.
