Window Film can and will in most cases pay for itself just through energy cost savings. On some occasions, we can carry out a energy survey of the building, this will help you work out a payback on the window film.
For example, we installed film onto an office with 900m2 area of glass. We could calculate they would get payback on the film within 3-5 years just through energy cost savings! With a guarantee of 10 years and life expectancy 15-20 you can see just how much money they can potentially save!
