Fusion: A Window Film Built for Energy Efficiency 

Fusion Series Films Help Building Owners and the Planet Simultaneously 

There’s a lot of interest in the green movement, and for good reason.

Not only can an energy-efficient approach to daily life help preserve the planet, but it can also provide benefits for everyone who takes part. 

Energy-efficient cars can get more mileage, energy-efficient machines can be more productive, and energy-efficient buildings can offer a more pleasant environment.

Fusion window films help homes and businesses control how many rays get through their windows. The material itself is focused on sustainability and utilizes green materials. It helps building owners lean less on their HVAC, while also providing privacy and comfort at the same time.

The energy-efficient approach and sustainable mindset behind Fusion films can benefit the user and have a positive effect on the planet.

Using Fusion for Temperature Stabilization – No More “Hot Spots”

Hot spots – every building is bound to have a few. Only instead of being a place to get wireless signal, these are pesky areas where the temperature always seems to rise.

Even a building with a robust air-conditioning system may find their cooling efforts results in an uneven climate. When some areas of a building are stuffy or muggy, it can be a major inconvenience to the occupants that occasionally may even result in health issues.

Hot spots and imbalanced climates usually result from sun beaming through windows consistently on warm days. Fusion films can provide heat rejection for residential and commercial locations, making them less likely to get overheated – and making them less reliant on air-conditioning. 

Green Technology Meets Energy Efficiency 

One of the core foundations of the green movement is energy efficiency. Doing things with as little impact on the planet as possible is now easier than ever before, thanks to technologies like Fusion window films.

Even when the air conditioner and fans are cranked up high and left on for hours, it can sometimes seem like a losing battle to keep a building cool. This is because windows can function like heaters on a sunny day, providing a constant influx of rays and the warmth with them.

Stopping that flow of heat means a building needs their air conditioner less. The less energy they use, the better for the environment. This can also be handy for lowering electric bills.

Benefits Beyond Savings and Environmentalism

Everyone wants to get the best deal possible as they try to improve their home or business. Fusion films are a cost-efficient choice for residential and commercial facilities because of their solar control. This helps the user and the planet – but what else does it offer?

Windows with protective films let in less heat, making for a more comfortable location. They can also provide additional protection against sun glare and stop surfaces from fading under harsh rays.

Comfort, protection, and advanced energy-efficient performance are all qualities of Fusion films. For any homeowner or business owner who wants to enjoy a green product designed for efficiency, Fusion is the right choice. 

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:

  • 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.

Huper Optik Expands Northeastern Efforts With Partner Tubelite Distributors

For Immediate Release

Houston, TX

Huper Optik is expanding its efforts in the Northeast. The brand makes the official announcement to inform current and future partners of the addition in territory management. Due to energy prices that have risen sharply in the Northeast (as high as 37% in Massachusetts in 2015), utility companies are looking to energy efficiency measures to reduce the load on the grid. The local utility companies are offering higher rebates to their customers for effective energy efficiency measures. Lighting retrofits are a well-known and often used solution and yet, many commercial customers and utilities are not aware using window film is a possibility. Window film has proven itself to offer comparable return on investment to lighting upgrades. The power companies continue to have pressure applied to their power grid due to rising demand.

Hüper Optik Window Films offer excellent solutions in its product lines, and a leading methodology through its modeling to help its clients make sound improvement decisions based on proven return-on-investment. Their distribution partners continue to be the biggest part of their effort to grow. In order to expand Huper Optik with dedicated sales staff to further pursue the Northeast and other opportunities, they are excited to announce a second distributor, Tubelite Distributors. Tubelite is a 90 year old company supplying signage material to commercial accounts in the Northeast. Tubelite has been an exclusive distributor of Huper Optik in the Southeast and in Florida for over 2 years. They have existing national account relationships in the commercial building segment where they will introduce window film as a solution.

Congress Approves Tax Credit Extension for Window Film

Royal Caribbean Cruise Line

Congress has recently passed HR 5771, an extension of tax credits on energy efficient improvements. These energy efficient improvements include window film and allows taxpayers to claim the incentives on their 2014 returns filed in early 2015. Congress stated that they will cover up to 10 percent of the cost of window films to a maximum of $500.

As part of a home or building’s insulation envelope, window films like those manufactured by Huper Optik,  reduces energy consumption by rejecting the sun’s solar energy and UV rays during the hot months of the year. Window films have been formulated to allow in the maximum amount of natural light, all while still protecting you against the sun’s heat, and UV rays. Not known to most, but in the winter months some window film can reflect heat, keeping it in, allowing for less energy consumption.

It has been proven that window films are beneficial in residential and commercial energy efficiency improvements by reducing a property’s carbon footprint. There are many dealers around the country that carry it and  application time is short. It also has been proven that window films have a lower cost than most energy efficient improvements, as well as a faster return on investment. These are just a few reasons window film has made it on HR 5771 allowing consumers to claim the tax credit on their 2014 returns.
