How ... much energy is lost through windows?
Windows typically occupy about 15 to 20 percent of the surface area of the walls. Windows not only add aesthetic looks and often a very important aspect of a home, but also a very significant component of home heating and cooling costs. Windows lose more heat per square foot of area in winter and gain more heat in summer than any other surface in the home.
Reduce energy lost via windows by reducing heat gain and loss.
How ... can my privacy be improved?
Collidescape GuaranteedTM blocks the view inside of your home from the outdoors without obstructing your view out during the daylight hours. Placing Collidescape GuaranteedTM on a window that faces a busy street will give you the privacy you want without having to pull the drapes. It also provides a measure of security since you can see the activity outdoors while remaining hidden inside. Night time privacy can be enhanced by adding up-lighting.
