CPFilms Introduces EnerLogicTM Glass Insulation Technology
CPFilms Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Solutia
Inc., announced what it is calling a groundbreaking new film
product. The EnerLogicTM series is the latest addition to the
VistaTM line-up of
Architectural window films, and features a patent-pending, low-E coating. The company says EnerLogic window film adds up to 92-percent more insulating power to existing commercial and
Developed as part of Solutia's ongoing commitment to energy efficiency, the company says 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.
"A building is only energy efficient as its windows," Dave Kaliser, CPFilms' director of product marketing -- architectural, explains. "Traditional window films reflect heat out, providing substantial
savings in summer, but adding relatively little value in winter. EnerLogic films help keep the heat outside in summer and inside in winter, creating a perfect balance of energy efficiency, cost savings,
Features of the new product, according to the company 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
triple-pane. the result is a significant increase in window efficiency at a fraction of window replacement cost.
Quick Payback -- Window 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
high-return technology that compares favourably 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 o f simple payback -- averaging just 2.75 years. Plus, it may be eligible for energy rebates and LEED certification points.
Widens Tax Credit Eligibility -- The rest product of the series, EnerLogic 35, significantly widens tax credit eligibility for residential applications, according to the announcement. Homeowners with vinyl
frame, dual-pane clear windows may now be eligible for the Federal Tax Credit anywhere in the United States when EnerLogic 35 window film is installed.
"At CPFilms we understand that the greenest energy is the energy that isn't used," said Ray Kollar, CPFilms president and general manager. "This innovative new window film series offers excellent
value by improving energy efficiency in every season, helping reduce consumption and preserve natural resources. We are proud to be the first film company to introduce this revolutionary
