Simulate Low-E Windows
The table below illustrates the impact of a Low-E film like 3M Thinsulate Climate Control CC75 to the U-Value and Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) of standard clear glass windows:
|U-Value Before||U-Value After||Improvement||SHGC Before||SHGC After||Improvement|
|Single Pane (1/4")||1.03||0.62||40%||0.82||0.53||35%|
|Double Pane(1/4", 1/2" air gap, 1/4")||0.47||0.35||26%||0.70||0.51||27%|
The numbers speak for themselves. Adding 3M Thinsulate Climate Control Window Film lowers a window’s SHGC and U-Value considerably, almost to the same extent as replacing single pane glass with double pane, or double pane glass with triple pane.
