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.


Proof of Technology

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.

If you’re tasked with improving your customer’s LEED or Energy Star Portfolio Manager score,we can help with that too!

3M Safety & Security Window Films


Many ESCOs are working to increase the safety of schools in addition to energy efficiency. School safety has been a top priority with administrators due to the rise of school shootings. It is believed that the installation of 3M Safety & Security Window Films can make unwanted entry through glass more difficult. In fact, shortly after Sandy Hook, the superintendent of that district stated in an interview that window film should be used to delay unwanted entry and give first responders more time to arrive onsite.
