Energy Savings

Green Building: How Installing Window Film Benefits the Environment

Window film benefits the environment in a number of ways and have been recognized by USGBC for Energy & Atmosphere LEED credits.

Window Films that Conserve Energy

Solar Control and Low-Emissivity (Low-E) window films available from Apex Window Film help Toronto area homes and businesses conserve energy and save money by controlling heat gain and/or loss. While many customers choose solar film to improve comfort by balancing interior hot spots and glare, the films reduce the need for air conditioning. Some Apex clients have found an improvement of more than 20°F in sunny rooms.

Low-E window film also keeps heat from escaping during winter months, reducing energy consumption from furnaces and boilers.

While individual results will vary depending upon the specific installation, window films are a proven energy saver and a great way to protect our environment.

According to Bekaert Window Films, research documents that solar control window films offer Energy savings of up to 30%:

By rejecting up to “79% of solar energy, window film keeps a room cooler and more comfortable. In commercial buildings, window film reduces the HVAC load and can significantly reduce the need to run cooling systems which are often used to control uncomfortable heat pockets. Window film eliminates heat pockets, so rooms stay a consistent, cooler temperature.”

Non-Reflective Ceramic Solar Films

STATE OF THE ART CERAMIC WINDOW FILMS ARE LESS REFLECTIVE THAN CONVENTIONAL WINDOW FILMS

Ceramic-sputtering technology is different than metallic coatings used on most other solar-control films. This technology means means the film is less reflective. While solar films may be optically clear, they can be more reflective at night than they appear in daylight.

Look at any ordinary window pane at night time, depending upon the light source, you may see your reflection from either inside or out. Typical, untreated window glass on average offers about 9% reflectance. Solar films will tend to increase this reflectance level. Ceramic films add as little as 2% reflectance to your existing glass!

The Apex ceramic window films are manufactured by SolarGard. SolarGard’s Panorama CX line-up of ceramic window films leverage solar absorbing technology to provide high heat rejection without sacrificing views. The light reflectance of these premium window films are kept very low, enhancing the view as it minimizes the distorting mirror effect created by some solar films.

CERAMIC WINDOW FILMS BENEFITS:
  • Advanced sputtered ceramic technology rejects up to 58% of total solar energy resulting in improved indoor climate control and total comfort
  • Low visible reflectivity provides uncompromising views to the outside while maintaining the natural appearance of the exterior
  • Exceptional durability makes it optimal for use in demanding environments
  • UV blocking (>99%) protects people and property from damaging UV rays
  • Metal-Free means less Electro-Magnetic Interference (beneficial for cell phone reception)

Prevent Fading

Reduced Interior Damage

Solar films reject 98-99% of the sun’s Ultraviolet (UV) rays, the major cause of fading to furniture, broadloom, art and photos. UV damage is also the primary cause of skin cancer.

Solar films also block large percentages of Solar Heat or Infrared Radiation as well as varying degrees of visible light (depending upon colour of tint selected) the second most important factors in Fading.

TESTIMONIALS

“My clients said that they were very pleased with the installers – they were very nice, they said and worked efficiently. The film started working immediately and impressed my clients because it was very warm Friday at noon and the sun would typically be heating my client’s living room. We stood by the window and there was no heat at all… wow. Also, I appreciate you calling my clients on Friday to ensure the installers arrived on time. My clients also commented on this. I look forward to working with you again.”

B.N. Certified Interior Decorator, Toronto

“Now, we can enjoy the sun in the afternoon without all the UV and Heat! This Window Film works grea!”

Residential Client, Richmond Hill, Ontario

TESTIMONIALS

“We are so satisfied with the window film that was applied to the wraparound windows of our apartment. The workmen were so quiet and professional with a very low level of disruption to our household. Jan was completely honest in what we could expect in terms of what the film would accomplish. The results were exactly as she described. Our building manager was so impressed that he requested Apex’s phone number to recommend it to new tenants. He also passed on the number to other tenants in our building who were having severe sun-heat problems even with air conditioning. So thank you Jan – it was a pleasure to meet you and we are so glad that we listened to you.”
