Increased energy efficiency may not mean much to the average property owner or anager until they actually see the cost savings involved in making these improvements to their building. These improvements include utilizing high efficiency light bulbs, upgrading HVAC systems, adding ceiling insulation, air sealing, caulking and installing a solar control window film.
According to a 2015 study by the International Window Film Association (IWFA), the installation of window film is one of the most efficient energy retrofits available. Depending on the construction, location and window film used the study concluded that most installations will be paid off within two years.
Efilm Calculates a Building’s Energy Consumption and Costs
There is no doubt that installing window film on a building is a smart investment and should be high on the list of energy efficient improvements for every building retrofit project. As a window film professional, you are equipped with the tools necessary to demonstrate these energy savings by using the Efilm program.
Efilm is an energy analysis program that allows you to simulate a building’s annual energy consumption by creating a 3D model of a building. This can be used to calculate a building’s approximate energy consumption and costs before and after application of solar control window film. Efilm was created specifically for the window film industry, and provides potential clients an estimated return on investment and detailed information on how consumption can be reduced with window film.
