Energy Conservation Can Be Cost Effective
It's understood–green building technology saves on energy costs and provides UV protection, but is it cost effective? The answer is YES. And it comes from technology developed in the 1960s.
The answer is a resounding "Yes!" Read on.
Affordable green building technology for energy savings and UV protection.
As national interest in green building practices continues to climb, homeowners and facility managers are seeking ways to cost-effectively incorporate environmentally preferable elements into both new and existing buildings. As it turns out, one of the most efficient green building products is nearly invisible. Ever hear of window film?
Fight Back Against Rising Energy Costs
Window films were developed in the 1960s – 3M™ filed the first patent in 1966 – and are the ideal solution to decrease energy costs and increase energy conservation practices in both new and retrofit projects. Window film products enable consumers to fight back against rising energy costs and help protect interiors from fade-inducing UV rays.
Window films are also specially designed to preserve or enhance buildings aesthetic elements with product options that range from changing the appearance to being nearly impossible to detect. This feature is especially important in planned communities, where homeowner associations often impose stringent rules regarding maintaining the integrity of a home’s appearance.
