According to the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), buildings consume 40% of all energy and produce 30%
of greenhouse gasses (GHG) worldwide. Most residential and commercial emissions are byproducts of fossil-fuel consumption
during heating and cooling.
The problem is exacerbated by the relatively long lifespan of buildings, substandard and outdated HVAC systems in
existing buildings and a recent boom in global construction. In fact, if the problem isn't addressed, UNEP estimates that
building-sector emissions will double in the next 20 years.
is no longer on our planet's side. To prevent climate change "worst-case scenarios," we must cut GHG emissions
by half in the next 40 years, says a recent UNEP report.
If you're looking
to do your part by reducing the carbon footprint of your home or business, consider making solar control window films part
of your strategy.
For a fraction of the cost of retrofitting, window films reduce heat gain and loss. This relieves the demand on your
HVAC system, allowing you to maintain a comfortable environment while consuming less fossil fuel.
recent energy audit by Solar Control Films Inc. found that a commercial business in Houston, Texas could reduce
the summer load on its HVAC system by 2,282 kilowatt-hours simply by applying, inexpensive, dual-reflective film to existing
