The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that one-third of a building’s cooling load is from solar heat gain through windows, and nearly 75% of existing windows are not energy efficient.
Utility costs can be reduced up to 15% by installing energy saving window film. Temperature fluctuations in many homes or buildings (and high utility bills) are due to sunlight streaming through windows. As the sun beats down the temperature heats up. But when the sun shifts or goes down, so does the temperature.
Having Cobra install energy-saving window film is a simple and cost effective way to keep the temperatures in your home or building as constant as possible. Energy-saving window film lowers energy costs by as much as 15%, with reduced carbon emissions and a return on investment as low as three years.
Also, if you’re deciding between window replacement or installing energy-saving window film on existing windows, a number of factors may affect the choice you make.
If your windows are structurally sound and in good condition, window film can often take care of several of the common problems associated with windows at a fraction of the cost.
