Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 24, 2012
Premier Window Films Offers introduced a new retrofit option for homeowners and facility managers that gives standard glass the performance of low emissivity windows, at a cost savings of up to 80% over replacement low e windows. Premier Window Films Offers Silver AG 50 Low E window film transforms standard glass into high performance windows, reducing energy consumption year-round, lowering costs associated with heating and cooling, and improving a building’s carbon footprint.
Windows are a major cause of energy loss, both in winter and summer. During colder periods, Premier Window Films Offers new low e window film reflects 63% of interior heat back into a room, while only 16% of interior heat is reflected back into a room with untreated windows. During warmer periods, Premier Window Films Offers Silver AG 50 reflects solar heat away from windows, keeping interiors cooler and reducing the need for air conditioning. Premier Window Films Offers Silver AG 50 has the highest visible light transmission (VLT) of any low e window film on the market, allowing more natural light into a building and preserving views.
