Washington, D.C. – February 13, 2014 – The International Window Film Association (IWFA), a nonprofit trade group representing the many benefits of window film from leading manufacturers, distributors and dealers, is initiating the first National Window Film Day on April 30th, a day of public education focusing on a cost-effective solution to reducing energy costs in homes, protecting skin and home decor from the sun’s damaging UV rays and to promote window safety.
“Independent research shows window film can be the most cost effective means of saving on energy costs across all climate zones in many states,” said John Parker, president of the IWFA. “We are confident in our support of a National Window Film Day to inform all citizens of the benefits of this affordable technology, and we encourage our members to participate as well as everyone in the industry,” added Parker.
The IWFA represents some of the leading makers of window film. They are 3M, American Standard Window Film, Eastman Chemical, Hanita Coatings, Johnson Laminating and Coating, Madico, Sangbo Co. Ltd and Solar Gard. The IWFA’s membership includes nearly 5,000 distributor and dealer / installers of window film.
As part of National Window Film Day, the IWFA is offering several free booklets on the energy savings and health benefits of window film on its website located at www.iwfa.com. In addition, there will be informational videos and articles to better inform the public about window film.
"Once installed, window film can offer year-round savings of about 5 to 10 percent of the home's total energy bill," said Darrell Smith, executive director of the IWFA. “In the coming weeks the IWFA will conduct new research to better understand consumer awareness about window film and its energy saving benefits, and we look forward to sharing the results.” he added.
