EnerLogic Window Films Saves Energy and Money

by Brent Sauser

I had the opportunity to attend the Orlando Home and Garden Show recentlySave Energy 1 and was impressed with the increasing number of Net Zero exhibitors.  Several solar panel exhibitors were present along with others featuring a variety of Energy Star products for the home.  I was very interested to see a few exhibitors featuring high performance window films for existing construction.  3M was there with their noteworthy window film products.  However, I was drawn to the EnerLogic window film exhibit.  They were demonstrating the virtues of their latest window films . . . . VEP35 and VEP70.  They had a sun 2thermal imaging camera that provided the performance evidence of their product versus no film and films by others.  Of particular note is the percentage of ultraviolet rejection, 99% for VEP35 and VEP70.  The solar energy rejected for VEP35 is 76% and 49% for VEP70.  Most importantly is their ability for interior reflectance by keeping a greater percentage of heat inside for colder climates.

This is a terrific Net Zero product for existing buildings that can cut your cooling Money clip art 4bills by 50% and heating bills by 10%.  I encourage you to click on the following links for additional information regarding EnerLogic VEP35 and VEP70.   You no longer need to be held hostage to high solar heat gain in the summer or heat loss in the winter . . . just because your home or building is older.    Adding these window films would be a one-time expense that will pay big dividends for years to come.

New South Window Solutions – at the Orlando Home & Garden Show

by D. Brent Sauser

I attended a Home & Garden Show at the Orlando Convention Center this weekend.  I was interested to see how many Net Zero products would be featured in this smaller scale home show.  The larger home show will occur in March of this year and NetZeroMax will be there to see what additional Net Zero products are featured.

I was pleased to see many exhibitors featuring Net Zero products, such as solar heaters for pools, solar powered attic vents, daylighting products, various insulation products, and window manufacturers.  In particular, I singled out one exhibitor that, in my opinion, demonstrated a cost effective, energy efficient, and practical solution to mitigating solar heat gain with windows.  The product is “New South Window Solutions“.  I was impressed with the product and am confident that it will result in providing greater comfort, as well as lower energy costs over the life of the product.  But . . . don’t take my word for it.  Please click on the video below to learn more about the value of this product.  Also, CLICK HERE to access the New South Window Solutions website.  Refer to the RESOURCES page where New South Window Solutions has been added to the list of manufacturers.
