Because of the flexible nature of the Solar Comfort window product and wide variety of applications available, bi-seasonal energy efficiency and day-lighting goals can be attained. With 90% of natural light available, significant amounts of the radiant heat energy are rejected, interior spaces become pleasant working environments. Less heat is absorbed by furniture and carpets, reduces the potential for harmful VOC off-gassing. With such drastic potential for energy savings, expensive upgrades to larger HVAC units can be re-assessed and the lifetime of existing units extended. Installing Solar Comfort before calculating for a new or expanded solar panel system may lead to a reduced KW project.

Both new construction and retrofit projects will benefit greatly. Historic buildings with period casings and important architectural designs will benefit from less fluctuation in temperature throughout the seasons, more comfortable climates for guests and the elimination of fading for valuable interior furnishings.
