How Window Film Controls Heat and Lower Energy Bills

Residential Window Film

How Window Films Can Lower Energy Bills

Dealing with the heat is tough, especially if you’re doing it without any help.

Most people think all they need is a quality air conditioner. But even if your home or business has a sufficient HVAC unit, the cost of such a system can be a problem on its own.

There are ways to reduce your dependency on air conditioning and ensure your unit doesn’t have to strain as hard. Our window films can keep the heat from easily entering your home or business as easily, allowing you to keep the area more comfortable and reduce monthly energy bills by up to 90%.

Why Energy Bills Can Soar When It Gets Hot

Logic would dictate that warmer temperatures means people rely more on their air conditioners. While this makes sense, some people can’t understand why their air conditioning unit is underperforming and struggling to maintain an even, comfortable temperature throughout a building.

Even if the area is small and the air conditioner is powerful, warm days can lead to heat coming through windows constantly. This means that for every bit of cool air pumped into a room via the AC, there is hot air beaming through windows by the sun.

The result is a situation where owners rely heavily on their air conditioners for hours at a time. The result can be soaring energy bills, even with efficient units.

Controlling Heat with Window Film

Since windows are roughly the same as gaping openings in terms of how heat can come through them, adding window film is a very efficient solution. This small modification can help you keep heat out of your home or office consistently.

Commercial Window Film

By cutting down the amount of heat taken into an area to a fraction of what it regularly is, our high-quality ceramic window films make it easier for your air conditioner to do its job. With less heat to compete with, the cool air can spread around any home or office quicker.

Once you protect yourself against the heat, you’ll find it is much easier to use your air conditioner without worrying. This cost-efficient move can provide you long-term benefits as your energy bills stay lower over time.

Why is Window Film a Smart Investment?

Why Is Window Film A Smart Investment?

Automotive window film is way more than just an upgrade option to make your car or truck look great. It is a smart investment in your health as well as financially due to added protection it offers your vehicle. Check out these reasons why adding window film is a smart investment.

Ultraviolet (UV) Ray Protection From The Sun

UV protection is a smart investment

According to SkinCancer.org:

Ultraviolet radiation can travel through car and home windows, where it can contribute to the daily accumulation of sun exposure that can lead to skin cancer and photoaging.

Autobahn Performance Films block greater than 99% of UV rays. Stay smart, stay safe, and protect yourself in your vehicle against harmful aging and cancer causing rays.

Protect Your Interior:

Ultraviolet rays don’t just cause aging and cancer in people. They break down material also which is what causes fading and cracking of vehicle interiors and upholstery. Installing window film and eliminating the ability of UV rays to reach interior parts of your car or truck will keep them in greater condition and for a longer period of time.

Auto Window Tint Properties

Reduce Bright, Harsh Rays While Driving

Window film will offer a better driving experience with due to reduced exposure to harsh rays from the Sun causing visibility issues and eye fatigue. Greater VLT levels, or “visible light transmission” also known as a window tint’s “darkness,” will help control and reduce exposure from the Sun’s visible light rays.

Security And Safety

Another layer of protection is added when you install automotive film products on your vehicle. Glass is held together better and less likely to shatter, sending loose glass dangerously throughout the air. In the event of theft by “smash-and-grab” thieves. As well as in the unfortunate event of an accident or crash. Window film increases the chance of preventing or reducing injuries due to breakage of the glass.

 

Choose A Quality Product For Best Results

For the best results in receiving all of these benefits and more from an automotive film installation choosing the best quality product on the market is vital. Autobahn Performance Films create innovative film products meant to change and lead the market. Industry standards are exceeded in every category and autobahn stands behind its product with a full guarantee. Choose the number one, top, best-performing product available to you – autobahn performance films – and make a smart investment in your wallet and health.

How an Energy Audit Can Help Organizations Save

Energy Modeling, Measurement, and Verification

Many people want to save money by cutting down on their energy usage.Commercial Energy Modeling

Some people see this is a great way to leave a smaller carbon footprint, but still have concerns about the true financial benefits of making changes.

Our window films are designed to limit the amount of heat and UV rays which enter a home or office. We can provide you with a detailed measurement so you’ll know how these changes will help you reduce your energy bill and by how much. By relying on measurements and hard data, customers can ensure they’re getting a return on their investment.

Our Window Films Reduce Energy Usage

Homes and businesses alike rely on their air conditioners to keep indoor climates comfortable. These units also improve air quality and make an area more hygienic. Unfortunately, there are some factors which can make it hard for an air conditioner to perform well.

On a hot day, the sun’s rays can beam through windows, blinds, and curtains to warm up any room in a hurry. Since an air conditioner must compete with this heat, it will have to work harder and consume more energy.

Our window films can reduce your energy usage by up to 40%. By blocking a large amount of the heat and harmful rays from coming inside, we help you beat the heat and lower your monthly energy bills.

LEED Certification with Cost Effective Window Film installation

Hüper Optik USA film contributions to a facility seeking LEED
Certification.

This is a 3rd party opinion which was prepared following dialog
with representatives of Hüper Optik USA and a further review of
their publicly available materials information and test data.

Initially when we review the aspirations of the LEED Ratings systems we find several aspects
that parallel or perhaps one could say are supported by the goals of Hüper Optik USA.
“The LEED rating systems aim to promote a transformation of the construction industry through strategies

designed to achieve seven goals:
·· To reverse contribution to global climate change
·· To enhance individual human health and well-being
·· To protect and restore water resources
·· To protect, enhance, and restore biodiversity and ecosystem services
·· To promote sustainable and regenerative material resources cycles
·· To build a greener economy
·· To enhance social equity, environmental justice, community health, and quality of life”1
Hüper Optik USA high performance window films contribute to …
·· reversing the contribution to global climate change in buildings using their films by reducing
their energy consumption. Over 100 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions (and
counting) have been reduced by the installation of approximately 2.5 million square feet of glass
in the Americas.
·· Enhancing individual human health and well-being in buildings using their films by rejecting
99.9% of the sun’s ultraviolet rays, reflecting the heat causing infrared energy, providing glare
reduction and modulating the interior glass temperature differential by up to a 23F degrees.
·· Promoting sustainable and regenerative material resources cycles via their dedicated use of
recycled and renewable resources.
·· building a greener economy via their Corporate Sustainability practices.

As you view this terse evaluation and opinion I must first state that I firmly believe in the
benefits of radiant barriers and radiant energy control products and their positive contributions to
energy conservation when properly used.

When we consider the applicability and contributions that Hüper Optik USA high performance
window films could potentially add to a facility being designed, constructed or updated to pursue
LEED Certification those considerations are many. Primarily this paper will reference a LEED
Credit Category and then make any reference to applicability of Hüper Optik USA high
performance window films contribute to the attainment of credits within that Credit Category.
We must remember that products cannot be LEED Certified and can only contribute to
successful certification efforts when the facilities construction and application conditions are
favorable to their application.

LEED Location and Transportation Credit Category2
Hüper Optik USA high performance window films could provide a positive
contribution to the comfort of the vehicles used and their occupant’s comfort yet
this benefit has no way to quantify within the current structure of the various
LEED Rating Systems.

 

 

 

 

LEED Sustainable Sites

LEED Sustainable Sites Credit Category3

Hüper Optik USA high performance window films could provide a positive
contribution towards the Heat Island Reduction and Light Pollution Reduction
Credits within both the LEED v4 for New Construction and Major Renovation
and the LEED v4 for Operations & Maintenance: Existing Buildings rating
systems. Regarding Heat Island Reduction, re-reflecting of radiant infrared (IR)
and rejection of ultraviolet (UV) energy can be accomplished via the installation of a suitable
Hüper Optik USA high performance window films. By reducing IR radiant energy heat load into
the building and rejecting the damaging UV rays we are moving that energy back into the
atmosphere and not causing a heat island at the immediate building envelope. This energy
rejection in reducing heat island contributions can be hard to quantify in general terms yet a very
thorough energy modeling that has the ability to consider these positive effects can be calculated
and field tested to determine exact quantities. This benefit can be referenced as a contributor for
Innovation in Design or Operations.
When considering light pollution reduction Hüper Optik USA high performance window films
provide a shading factor that will mitigate the interior light appearances when viewed from the
exterior and serve to reduce the light transmission trespass over distances reducing lighting
levels at property limits. This light transmission reduction serves to increase night sky access as
well, although hard to quantify theoretically certainly when employing this technique in an
existing building before and after field measurements can be utilized to assist in the attainment of
the intent of these goals.

LEED Water Efficiency Credit Category4
When considering Water Efficiency initially there would seem to be no
correlation between water consumption and Hüper Optik USA high
performance window films yet the determining factor would be if water is used

Hüper Optik USA film contributions to a facility seeking LEED Certification
for the cooling systems of a facility. If the facility has cooling towers that depend on water then
the contributory positive correlation to water efficiency and consumption related to cooling
demand can be made. Consider that Hüper Optik USA high performance window films help
reduce the external energy load transmitted through the glazing system thus reducing the overall
energy required to cool or heat a building depending on the climatic location of the facility. The
application of Hüper Optik USA high performance window films can reduce the interior surface
temperature of an insulated glazing unit by 13 degrees Celsius or approximately 23.4 degrees
Fahrenheit. This internal surface temperature reduction as compared to an untreated insulated
glazing unit correlates to a reduction in the solar IR and UV energy intrusion into the building
and will consequentially reduce the cooling demand in a hot climate. Many factors will
additionally affect the quantity of water consumed within a building’s HVAC system’s cooling
towers yet the application of Hüper Optik USA high performance window films will provide a
measureable differential and a reduction in required resources as compared to the equivalent
building without some radiant energy reduction technology utilized. The theoretically or
proposed water reductions are very difficult to quantify yet certainly when benchmarking an
existing building before and after field measurements can be utilized to determine the
contributions that process water use reduction can make to the attainment of the overall water
reduction goals.

LEED Energy And Atmosphere Credit Category5
“Hüper Optik USA was founded in 1998, out of a need to provide an energy
saving technology that would protect consumers from harmful UV rays, and
provide a green solution for energy savings.” This quote best aligns with the
LEED goal “… to reverse contribution to global climate change” which is
dependent on a reduction where possible of the use of combustion and fossil
fuels and their inherent negative impacts from overuse.
Hüper Optik USA high performance window films will provide a positive contribution within
this LEED Category since their products primary goals are to provide measurable energy saving
technology which typically has an ROI of less than 5 years.
Energy modeling that is used typically to evaluate energy reduction strategies for a new building
differs from the benchmarking exercise that is performed on an existing building. Both practices
are evaluating the effectiveness of the building’s envelope for a given orientation as well as the
potential performance gains that can be accomplished by changes to the building envelope in the
energy model and energy audit processes. Fenestration selections are conventionally made using
simply economic factors which is why we have so many energy inefficient buildings. The
differential costs as well as the ROI between inefficient window replacements versus the great
performance gain can be had by the application of optic films to an existing window assembly is
substantially favoring the film with a cost of one tenth as compared to replacements. When
considering the aesthetics and performance desires of the glazing system in the new building
there’s still a potential to utilize optic films in that application as well yielding an exterior glazing
appearance with desired reflectivity and color and yet have the additional radiant energy

Hüper Optik USA film contributions to a facility seeking LEED Certification
performance affected by utilizing film in this type of application. The building’s specific energy
performance improvement will vary depending on the amount of glazed area in the facility and
the type of film used in its application and can certainly exceed a 40 percent reduction of the
energy load at the glazing system.
Hüper Optik USA high performance window films help reduce the external energy load
transmitted through the glazing system thus reducing the overall energy required to cool or heat a
building depending on the climatic location of the facility. The application of Hüper Optik USA
high performance window films can reduce the interior surface temperature of an insulated
glazing unit by 13 degrees Celsius or approximately 23.4 degrees Fahrenheit. This internal
surface temperature reduction as compared to an untreated insulated glazing unit correlates to a
reduction in the solar IR and UV energy intrusion into the building and will consequentially
reduce the cooling demand in a hot climate. Many factors will additionally affect the quantity of
energy consumed within a building’s HVAC system’s components yet the application of Hüper
Optik USA high performance window films will provide a measureable differential and a
reduction in required resources as compared to the equivalent building without some radiant
energy reduction technology utilized. The theoretically or proposed energy use reductions are
very difficult to quantify yet certainly when benchmarking an existing building before and after
field measurements can be utilized to determine the contributions that an energy reduction
component can contribute to the attainment of the overall energy use reduction goals.

LEED Material Resources Credit Category6
Hüper Optik USA high performance window films provide a positive
contribution to reducing the need or desire to replace perfectly good glazings
that are poor performers that keep these glazings from impacting landfill
contributions. Further due to the film’s ability to reject 99.9% of UV Rays there
is an inherent protection of the interiors from infrared damage and premature
aging increasing thus the usable life of all exposed interior products and finishes.
When considering materials and resources credits in new buildings certainly a very efficient
material is desired, yet Hüper Optik USA high performance window films have a large quantity
of recycled content within their films which could contribute to gaining that credit in a newly
constructed building. Further within LEED v4 material disclosure and life cycle assessment is
largely dependent on a manufacture sharing that data with the LEED project team this is
something that Hüper Optik USA is actually proud of, they enjoy disclosing qualities, contents
and characteristics of their materials used. Within the Existing Building Purchasing and
Maintenance and Renovation policies is the opportunity to add products such as Hüper Optik
USA films with their substantial benefits and further contributions to waste management policies
considering the ability for the product to be recycled at the end of its exceedingly long service
life as compared to other applied window products.

LEED Interior Environmental Quality Credit Category7
When we consider indoor environmental quality and the factors that affect
systems performance, comfort, acoustics and air quality Hüper Optik USA high
performance window films can enhance those indoor air quality strategies. As
previously provided Hüper Optik USA high performance window films have
superior thermal decoupling properties for enhanced thermal comfort reducing
drafty feel caused by convection adjacent to the windows. Other beneficial properties beyond
modulating the temperature adjacent to the windows include assisting with interior lighting and
daylighting strategies as well as reducing glare thus increasing the occupants comfort the quality
of life. Again, although Hüper Optik USA high performance window films benefit all of these
mentioned scenarios it is difficult to quantify the exact number of points you could influence by
implementing the product. Suffice it to say it is a very useful strategy to increase the comfort of a
building’s occupants in a new or existing building application as a consequence of outstanding
energy performance improvements. Within LEED v4 Acoustic Performance has now become a
credit earning consideration and the application of Hüper Optik USA high performance window
films will inevitably contribute positively in this regard due to its sound dampening qualities that
become obvious during the field measurements during acoustic STC performance testing when
pursuing the respective credits.


LEED Innovation (ID-EP-IO) Credit Category8
Facilities that utilize Hüper Optik USA high performance window films should
pursue an Innovation Credit for the positive contributions the use of this product
will always have.
When we consider innovation credits one of the great things that Hüper Optik
USA high performance window films contribute to an innovation especially in
an existing building is drastically increasing the energy performance of a building’s envelope by
its application. Additional qualities that can be addressed include glare reduction in daylighting
strategies and further increasing the occupants comfort via acoustic performance where the intent
is to provide work spaces and classrooms to promote occupants well-being productivity and
communications through effective acoustic design. Utilizing Hüper Optik USA high
performance window films as cost benefit scenario strategy is certainly grounds for somebody to
start pursuing an innovation credit for its use and application.
In order to qualify for an Innovation Credit we have to achieve a significant measurable
environmental performance using a strategy not addressed with in the respective LEED Green
Building rating system. Further to be successful one has to “identify the following:
·· the intent of the proposed innovation credit;
·· proposed requirements for compliance;
·· proposed submittals to demonstrate compliance; and
·· the design approach or strategies used to meet the requirements.”

Control Heat Gain in Your Home

Control Heat Gain in Your Home

Heat can feel like an impossible feat to conquer in the summer months. More often than not, individuals solely rely on their air conditioning units to cool homes and combat the heat. However, there are other ways to keep your home cool. Here are money saving tips on how to reduce heat gain in your home without overworking your air conditioning unit, while simultaneously reducing your energy bills.

First of all, what is Heat Gain?

Heat gain is the build up of heat in your home ranging from natural sources, such as sunshine, to the operation of household appliances, such as your oven, washing machine, or clothes dryer. All of these sources produce a significant level of heat gain, in turn, increasing the strain on your air conditioning unit. The following are energy efficient solutions that will reduce the heat gain in your home without increasing your electric bill.

Starting with the #1 Heat Gain Producer

Sunshine entering through windows is the primary natural source of heat gain. Windows alone can account for almost half of a home’s heat gain in the summer months. Take the first step to reducing heat gain in your home by:

Heat Gain Pie Chart
  • Applying solar film to your windows: If you do not want to completely block out the natural lighting effects of sunlight, window film is the perfect solution. Many film products, such as Hüper Optik Smart Window Films, reduce the amount of heat in your home but at the same time, they do not impede upon the natural lighting effects of windows and sunlight. Hüper Optik products also reject 99.9% of the sun’s ultraviolet rays– the rays responsible for skin problems and fading of home furnishings.

Work on the Top and Feel the Result at the Bottom!

Your roof and attic can collect a lot of heat with the summer sun endlessly shining down on them. Each day, heat enters through your roof and accumulates in your attic. Before you know it, the heat will transfer down to the cool lower living areas of the home. Thwart this unwanted heat with these effective methods:

  • Coat your roof with a reflecting material or install light-colored roofing materials that absorb solar radiation.
  • As a second line of defense, insulate your attic thoroughly and install an attic ventilation system that will constantly regulate airflow. This will bring in cool air and push out the unwanted hot air.

Shine a New Light on Your Situation

If you try to beat out the summer heat by covering your windows with drapes, curtains, blinds or shades you will now rely only on the overhead light bulbs and lamps in your house to make up for lost light. Although one problem is resolved, another emerges:

  • No matter the size, light bulbs radiate a large amount of heat throughout the house but switching them to compact fluorescent bulbs will not only produce the same amount of light that you desire, it will also save energy and reduce heat production significantly.

To learn more on how to conquer heat gain in the sweltering summer months, call Hüper Optik at 832-467-1170.

Case Study: Texas Citizens Bank

Texas Citizens Bank

Texas Citizens Bank, is a boutique private bank in the Houston area with six locations. Employees of all six free standing structures complained of the high exposure to the western sun. This resulted in all locations closing their blinds on the western facing walls, which is a security risk for financial institutions. To improve comfort from the heat and enhance visibility from the suns glare, Texas Citizens Bank turned to EES Consulting, an energy efficiency solutions firm that provides turn-key energy efficiency and sustainability solutions to one and two story light commercial and industrial businesses. EES Consulting assessed Texas Citizens Bank’s buildings firsthand, and then implemented energy efficient solutions in several locations.

A Customized Solution

As part of the customized solution EES Consulting recommended, was the installation of energy efficient Huper Optik Ceramic 40 Window Film on the banks western facing windows. The resulting financial benefits of this solution were twofold, reducing costs in kilowatts per hour and a reduction in the heat load on the HVAC unit increases the lifetime of the equipment. The less heat that penetrates the banks’ windows, the less work and energy the HVAC unit will have to do to keep each building cool.

Big savings

Before the implementation of EES Consulting’s customized solutions, Texas Citizens Bank was consuming an average of 9,596 kWh per month. After the window film installation improvement, the bank averaged 8,061kWh, a 16 percent decrease for a cost savings of over $1,800.

Mike Cornett, President and Organizing Director, was extremely pleased with EES Consulting’s professionalism, and has recommended EES to many of the bank’s clients.

“The air conditioning units were running full steam ahead prior to the filming just to maintain a comfortable temperature in the lobby and in the offices with western sun exposure,” said Cornett. “We were able to throttle those thermostats back and keep it on a normal temperature. It has just helped out immensely.”
“Without fail, every one of the clients that we’ve referred EES to have been very pleased with them,” he said.

Energy efficiency improvements can positively impact business’ financials. However, in this case that was just a bonus. Mike’s primary goal for the energy efficiency improvements were to make his bank more comfortable for his customers and employees. After the installation, the banks were able to turn their thermostats to a normal temperature without worrying the heat coming in through the windows.

By working with EES Consulting, Texas Citizens Bank was able to reduce costs, increase comfort, improve the customer experience and diminish their impact on the environment.
