What is a Low-E window Film
According to data from the Australian government’s Energy Efficiency Exchange, electricity usage related to heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) typically accounts for approximately 40 per cent of total building energy consumption and 70 per cent of base building energy consumption.
On average since the year 2000 Australian household energy prices have risen 9% annually, based on the Australian Bureau of Statics Energy Pricing Index.
HVAC makes up such a large portion of these associated costs for energy consumption, because of this low-cost solution to help reduce expenditure on HVAC are highly sought after.
Low E window films are just that, data acquired from the Australian Department of Environment and Energy shows that windows with inadequate coatings lead to on average 25 to 30% of all energy wasted from commercial buildings.
