Home Living : May 17th 2011
8 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, May 17, 2011 Window film designed to keep the heat in » ADVERTISING FEATURE HOMELIVING Homeowners wanting to reduce their energy bills are often advised by energy assessors to look to their windows. More than 40 per cent of a home's cooling or heating energy can be lost or gained through windows, making them an important piece of the energy consumption puzzle. Now selecting the right window film has been made easier with the launch of WERS For Film. WERS stands for the Window Energy Rating Scheme, the energy-rating program for the window industry and is endorsed by the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency. Using WERS For Film ratings, consumers can now accurately compare the energy benefits of different films. A vast selection of solar-control window films improve energy efficiency by blocking up to 80 per cent total solar energy, 99 per cent UV radiation and 90 per cent glare. Film is retrofitted to existing windows, making it an attractive alternative for those not wanting to spend thousands on new Low E units. It is only applied to glass, so it does not obstruct the view or confuse the design aesthetic like curtains, blinds or awnings. Tracey Gramlick, executive director of the Australian Window Association, which owns and manages WERS, said: ''as each film manufacturer has their own way of reporting performance claims, it used to be near impossible to compare one brand to another.'' WERS For Film has removed the guesswork. Now you can use WERS ratings to evaluate one product and its potential impact on your home, and then compare it to another. Window film manufacturers participating in WERS For Film have their products applied to glass in a window by an independent laboratory accredited by the Australian Fenestration Rating Council. The window with film applied then receives a star rating for heating and cooling. Like the energy star system used to rate white goods, the more stars the greater the efficiency of the product. President of the Window Film Association of Australia and New Zealand Michael Miller says WERS For Film will change the way people buy window film.
