Window Film Can Save Energy, Reduce UV Exposure and Avoid the Cost of Full Window Replacements
WASHINGTON, Feb. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — The International Window Film Association (IWFA), a nonprofit group, is offering a free booklet on today’s advanced window films. The booklet outlines how window film can be professionally installed to bring windows that are in good condition, up to modern standards.
“Many consumers are deciding for a variety of factors to stay in place and are looking for ways to improve the curb appeal and efficiency of their homes,” said Darrell Smith, executive director of the IWFA. “Window film is a long-term and cost-effective solution for home improvement challenges. It can reduce energy consumption by reducing solar heat gain, and reduce the carbon footprint, while allowing you to enjoy natural light without the negative impact of harsh glare and UV exposure,” he added.
The booklet can be downloaded at the IWFA website: http://www.iwfa.com/ConsumerInfo/IWFAWindowFilmBooklet.aspx. It gives consumers unbiased expertise on a less commonly known, but powerful home enhancement that adds value immediately and provides long-term return on investment through energy savings and extending the life of older windows without changing their character or architectural integrity.
Window film is rated by the NFRC (National Fenestration Rating Council), as are new windows and doors, so homeowners and property managers can be sure of the benefits. The new booklet helps consumers understand more about how window film delivers up to seven times the energy savings per dollar spent, as compared to installing replacement windows.
Homeowners or commercial building owners can locate IWFA member dealers on the IWFA website. Visitors can also request an energy saving analysis or learn more about how window film increases comfort, security and peace of mind.
