Solar heat comes from two primary sources, the visible light you can see, and the infrared light you can feel. We use multi-layer optical film and nano-technology to reject up to 97% of the sun’s infrared light and reject up to 85% of the heat coming through your windows. These films also reject up to 99.9% of damaging UV rays to reduce fading of your furnishings. These industry-leading, spectrally-selective films are designed to keep you cool, comfortable, and protected.
By rejecting solar heat in the summer months by up to 85% and by increasing winter heat retention by up to 88%, you are able to greatly reduce your heating and cooling costs while simultaneously increasing your comfort and protecting the health of your family. In fact, since windows have the longest replacement cycle of anything else in your home, you have 15-20 years to enjoy the savings. You can expect a return of between 5-15% per year on your heating and cooling bills, which calculates to a whopping $0.20 per square foot. Multiply that by the size of your building, times 12 months a year, times 20 years, and you start to understand the sort of astronomical savings we are talking about.
