3M Solutions for Energy Service Companies
3M Insulating Window Films
3M Insulating Films reduce a window's SHGC and U Value which in turn increases the energy efficiency of a building’s envelope. We can decrease kWh usage and reduce temperature imbalances, all at a fraction of the cost of glass replacement. With a three- to seven-year payback and films warrantied for up to 15 years, ESCOs are embracing our solutions for their customers.
We can estimate the impact of window film on most buildings using energy modeling software co-developed by the Department of Energy (DOE), 3M Company, and the International Window Film Association. EFILM, the software standard of the window film industry, is based on the DOE’s Energy Plus model. Or if you prefer, we can provide you with the 3M window film components specific to your software (TRACE™ 700, eQuest, etc) so that you can measure the impact of our window films yourself.
In addition to estimating the payback of a 3M window film project, we will even apply for a utility rebate on your customer’s behalf, or supply you with all of the information necessary to do it yourself.

3M Daylight Redirecting Film
3M Daylight Redirecting Film (DRF) redirects sunlight toward the ceiling to reduce dependency on artificial light. 80% of the sun’s visible light can be redirected toward the ceiling at a depth of 40’ into the room. Average electrical savings as a result of using less artificial light is 1.5 kWh.
