How to reduce energy consumption in buildings?



Do you want to avoid excessive energy consumption in your buildings, offices or premises? There are many ways to reduce your energy bill throughout the year.

Solar Screen introduces you to one of the simplest and most cost-effective ways to reduce energy consumption in buildings: solar window film. We explain how it works!

The different ways to reduce energy consumption in buildings

There are many small (or large) ways that we can implement daily to succeed in reducing our energy bill, such as

  • Minimizing artificial lighting when possible and making do with daylight
  • Install a programmable thermostat
  • Adapting your lighting to modern technology
  • Identify and eliminate phantom loads (this is electricity consumed by electronic devices when not in use)

It is important to reduce energy consumption but also to educate your employees on how energy is consumed in buildings.


This involves a holistic approach to the building, i.e. looking at the equipment, but also the culture of the employees regarding energy issues. The best way to achieve significant savings on your energy bill is to evaluate these different aspects.

The examples above are actions to be taken on a daily basis to see long term effects. Solar Screen presents a completely different solution: adhesive film for windows.

Adhesive window film: a solution for energy consumption

If you hope to maximize energy efficiency throughout the year, it is essential to choose a high quality window film.

Here's how this affects your energy bills and people's comfort level depending on the season:

  • In summer, window film reflects UV rays and rejects up to 80% of the sun's energy. You use your air conditioning system less and thus reduce your energy consumption.
  • In winter, window film reflects heat back into the house, keeping it where it belongs during very cold periods.
  • By blocking UV rays, solar adhesive films also reduce glare and fading. So you can continue to enjoy natural light and limit energy consumption in buildings.

Good to know:

Whether you call it anti-cold film or anti-heat film, both are actually solar films. Anti-cold film is a thermal insulation solution for windows. Anti-heat film rejects solar heat.

In fact, a thermal insulation film can reduce heat loss through windows by up to 33% in winter.

The Solar Screen range of adhesive films is very varied in terms of design and performance, depending on your needs. They are also guaranteed for several years!
