Window Insulation Provides Real Energy Savings

Windows can be the weakest thermal areas of your homes envelope.  Therefore it makes sense that it is also an area that, properly insulated, can provide significant energy savings.

 

Insulation for All Seasons

Image of how the product works in all seasons

We use a material that is reflective on one side and black on the other. The reflective side reflects 72% of the heat back out the window when faced outwards in summer. In winter the fabric is reversed so that the reflective side is faced inwards which again reflects the radiant heat inwards and the black reverse side (which is facing outwards now) acts as a passive solar collector absorbing sun rays and radiating the heat into the room. Windows are the weakest link in the building envelope and installing window insulation has a payback time of incredibly just 2 – 4 years. Reflective insulation is up to 10 times more effective than double glazing or low emissivity glass. Whichever way it is placed in the window opening it can be seen through too. The material can be fitted to your windows as Vertical Blinds, Roller Blinds, Holland Blinds, fitted with a magnetic bead or made to fit panels.
