A Solution To The Intense Colorado Sun On Your Home’s Windows

An Enerlogic Window Film Case Study

Waking up with gorgeous mountain views each morning, a booming economy and a weekend full of options for outdoor recreation. What is not to love about living in Colorado? For the most part, the answer is nothing. However, for all the positive attributes there is one glaring negative about life in Colorado and that is–the relentless sun. Anybody who has ever tried to sit on a west facing patio in the metro area from 3:00 pm-6:00 pm or to drive Eastbound on I-70 at sunrise knows how intensely bright and almost unbearable it can be. The following case study details how window tinting can help curb the sun’s intensity and make for a higher quality of life.

SITUATION: A North Carolina couple bought their dream home in Durham–gorgeous 18 ft front windows and all. What they didn’t realize is these windows would prove virtually useless for views at peak hours of the day and render the room too hot to even sit in most hours of the day. They needed something to keep their dream from turning into a nightmare.

SOLUTION: After doing some research the couple decided on EnerLogic® film. This Low-E coating helps save on cooling costs by blocking solar heat and it reduces heat radiating into a home’s interior through window glass. It has cold weather benefits too; it reflects 92% of the room’s radiant warmth back into the home. Which translates to significant utility bill savings.

RESULT: EnerLogic film turned the couple’s home back into the stunning reality they had always envisioned. The room became useful again and they were able to enjoy a gorgeous, drape-less view all day long. The homeowners noted,“The room is visibly better. The view outside even looks crisper and clearer. It’s just beautiful. And with the savings on the furniture and heat, it’s already paid for itself – there’s no doubt in my mind.”
