Low E Residential Films

When you think of home energy improvements such as CFL lighting, insulation, and weather-stripping, you should also be thinking of window films. Low E films in particular essentially provide single-pane windows the annual insulating performance of double-pane windows, and make double-pane windows perform like triple-pane windows. They are the only window films on the market that offer this type of year-round performance.

Residential window tinting with Low E film transforms existing windows into energy efficient windows. By filtering out excess heat, glare, and Ultraviolet (UV) radiation, homeowners can see up to a significant reduction in yearly energy costs at a fraction of the investment of window replacement.

Over the product life of Low E window films, homeowners with single-pane windows may expect to save an average of $3,500 on heating and cooling costs. That’s a great deal of savings on keeping your home comfy without costly or disruptive window replacement.  Having a Low E film (like EnerLogic 35 or 70) window film installed on your house is a simple and effective way to help increase comfort and lower your energy bills. You won’t just see the difference in your energy bills and your windows, you’ll feel it too. House window tinting with EnerLogic 35 film keeps solar heat out of your house in the hot weather and radiant heat inside your home during cold weather.

Case Study

Luxury Home Improvement

Situation

A trio of 18-foot tall windows provides a dramatic focal point in the formal living room of a local couple’s dream home. But those same windows also posed a problem from the first day the couple moved in. “The biggest problem was that the western sun coming into the room through those windows was just so hot,” the homeowner recalls. “From early afternoon ‘til sunset, the room was hot, the walls were hot, and we knew we were going to have to do something. We also had to protect the furniture.”

Solution

She contacted a window film installer and “they told me about this new Low E film and brought a sample over, along with another film. We put them both up on the window, and you could see and feel the difference even with just the samples. It was almost like EnerLogic film actually stopped the heat: it was cool to the touch and there was no heat on the wall.” The homeowner was experiencing firsthand the solar control power of EnerLogic window film with its patented low-emissivity Low-E coating. During summer, the Low-E coating helps save on cooling costs by blocking solar heat and reducing heat radiating into the home’s interior through warmed window glass. During winter, the coating reduces heating costs by reflecting 92% of the room’s radiant warmth back into the home.

Results

While most window films offer summer-only savings, EnerLogic film’s low-emissivity coating will increase energy efficiency for this mid-Atlantic residence all year long. EnerLogic film also helps achieve the homeowner’s goal of protecting her fine furnishings by blocking 99% of the sun’s damaging UV rays. To top it off, the homeowner notes that EnerLogic film even enhances the view. “The room is visibly better,” she says. “The view outside even looks crisper and clearer. It’s just beautiful. And with the savings on the furniture and heat, it’s already paid for itself – there’s no doubt in my mind.”
