GlAzing Energy Analysis
A glazing energy analysis is an audit of a buildings glazing to ascertain its energy efficiency, and the potential energy savings that could be achieved with the installation of ARC Window Film.
A buildings glazing offers one of the best opportunities for a solid return on investment for energy savings – but how big is the potential saving?
What Types of Glazing Analysis Are There?
We offer 3 types of glazing energy analysis;
- Spectral Performance Analysis
This shows the performance of the glazing in the building, before and after film installation.
Suitable for: small projects
Uses actual values: Glazing (type) and film (type)
Advantage: shows actual performance of glazing with selected film
Drawback: very basic
- Basic Glazing Energy Analysis
A basic energy analysis shows the potential savings that could be achieved in a typical building of similar size, construction and location.
Suitable for: medium projects, when only basic information is available
Uses actual values: Glazing (type, amount), Film (type, cost), Building (type, size, orientation)
Uses typical values: Building (construction), HVAC (systems, set points), Utility (rates, usage)
Advantage: Does not need input from building owners/managers. Gives estimated ROI and Payback.
Drawback: Based on notional building and data
- Detailed Glazing Energy Analysis
A very detailed analysis that shows the potential savings that could be achieved using actual building information.
Suitable for: large projects, 300m2+
Uses actual values: Glazing (type, amount), Film (type, cost), Building (type, size, construction, orientation), HVAC (systems, set points), Utility (rates, usage), Ancillary (shading, occupancy)
Advantage: Uses actual building information and calibration during building software simulation for
improved accuracy. Gives estimated ROI and Payback period.
Drawback: Requires 12 months energy bills and some involvement of building owners/ managers to provide additional
