Energy savings with LLumar solar control window film.
The Erie School System, a combination of the high school, elementary and pre-schools on one campus, had serious budget concerns led by high heating and air conditioning costs. To address the issue, school authorities contacted Johnson Controls, a global Energy Services Company (ESCO) to audit their campus and to recommend energy conservation measures.
The professionals recommended LLumar solar control window film N 1020B for the project because of its superior heat control properties. Professionally installed by the local LLumar dealer, this window film reduces excessive summer solar heat gain by 73%. The film further contributes to the learning environment by reducing glare 78%. As part of the project, LLumar Exterior Series RK 20 film was fitted to the outside of 70 panes of skylight glass to successfully curb heat and glare by 83%.
LLumar solar control window film contributed energy savings of 15% across the campus helping to alleviate some of the budget concerns. In addition, these films created a clean contemporary appearance, provided added comfort for building occupants, and significantly reduced glare.
