Tinting That Saves Energy Year-Round

Unlike other solar-control only commercial window tint, EnerLogic 35 keeps solar heat gain out during summer and radiant heat in during winter. It gives an existing single-pane window the insulating performance of a dual-pane window, and provides an existing dual-pane window with the insulating performance of a triple-pane window. Based on computer modeling using U.S. Department of Energy software, building owners and managers may expect savings from commercial window tinting with EnerLogic film that are up to three times higher than what traditional light films offer. Utility bills and HVAC loads and run times may likewise be reduced in winter, spring, summer, and fall, resulting in ongoing energy cost savings of up to 15% annually. Lighting costs may also be reduced after commercial window tinting is installed because it allows blinds and shades to be left open, letting in more natural daylight (with minimal UV radiation,  glare, and solar heat gain).

 

Commercial building energy savings projected using the U.S. Department of Energy’s DOE-2 program, from a representative sample of building sizes, climates, and existing window types.

 

Blocks Harmful UV Rays

If the sun’s Ultraviolet (UV) rays aren’t controlled, they can cause a lot of damage. UV rays contribute to fading of furniture, wall coverings, artwork, fabric, flooring, and merchandise in window displays. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, UV rays also contribute to cancers of the skin and premature aging. Even on cloudy days, harmful UVA radiation can enter through your building’s windows to damage assets and your skin. EnerLogic films provide approximately 99% UV protection (at wavelengths from 280nm to 380nm).

 

Decreases Temperature Fluctuations

Landlords know that occupant comfort leads to higher productivity and tenant satisfaction. By reducing solar heat gain and providing better window insulation, hot and cold spots can be reduced. EnerLogic 35 commercial window tinting reflects up to 93% of radiant heat in winter, helping to improve comfort for those near windows. Computer simulations confirm what occupants can feel, EnerLogic 35 when installed gives existing single-pane windows the same year-round insulating performance as dual-pane, transforming poorly insulated windows into energy-efficient windows. Because commercial window tint prevents excess heat from entering through windows in summer, HVAC systems may operate more efficiently to cool spaces.

 

Reduces Glare While Preserving Views

 

Commercial window tinting reduces glare while allowing controlled natural light into a space. Because it does this so effectively, blinds, shades, and curtains can often be left open to let in daylight and enjoy views to the outdoors without negatively influencing the ability to read or see computer monitors.
 

Offers Fast Return on Investment

 

EnerLogic 35 is a fraction of the cost to install compared to new commercial windows (and the installation is much less disruptive). Because of the energy savings this low-e commercial window tinting provides, facilities professionals may expect to see a full return on their investment in three years or less. It lowers initial costs and environmental impact without compromising energy efficiency or visibility.
