energy savings solutions

Windows are the soul of a building, and today’s architectural designs have evolved to reflect this, using more and more glass. While this satisfies a true human desire for natural light, it also has a downside: less protection from solar heat, glare, and harmful UV rays. The Sun’s light and heat can make your office or building uncomfortable and create unwanted fading.  

Solar films can provide for savings with your heating and air conditioning in addition to the assistance with glare reduction, fading, and protecting employees from the harmful effects of the sun’s UV.  Some of the films available from Signals Defense can reduce inside temperature, earn LEED credits, improve Energy Star scores, and reduce energy consumption

Our solar window films allow you to maintain the beautiful benefits of windows without making sacrifices. By filtering much of the solar spectrum, window film technology contributes to overall productivity, satisfaction and happiness. Plus, films are less expensive than window replacement and won’t darken rooms or hide desirable views. Explore our full range of products to find the ideal solar film solution for your building.

Signals Defense carries and installs a variety of solar window films.  Call us to evaluate your project to see what is best.

Energy costs account for approximately 30% of the total operating cost for a commercial building. According to an estimate by the U.S. Department of Energy nearly 75% of existing windows are not energy efficient, and one-third of a buildings cooling load is from solar heat gain through windows. Window films and or Window treatment products such as roller shades and window blinds through Signals Defense can enhance the performance of any glazing system, significantly reducing energy consumption. Professional energy audits estimate that buildings improved with energy saving window films could realize annual savings up to 15%. In addition, depending on your utility company, window films may qualify for rebates making them more affordable.

There are numerous factors that determine whether your building would be a good fit for energy saving window films. We have provided a unique tool that takes into account various parameters to identify if your building is suited for this enhancement.
