Great article discussing green building trends and how a variety of window films fit into these trends. Window films would fall under the Passive Construction category discussed in the article. Modern window films can be used to reduce the need for heat in the Winter and air conditioning in the Summer.

It’s a fact: green building is not a craze or a fad, but the future of construction. And this is true for both new construction and renovation/retrofitting. This shouldn’t surprise anyone; as “Green Multifamily & Single Family Homes: Growth in a Recovering Market,” a recent report from the World Green Building Council explains, research shows that consumers are willing to spend more to get green homes.
