Enhance Building Energy Performance By Using Energy Efficient Glazing
Window glass technology is not a new thing today. As the buildings got bigger and cities started to expand, the need for energy efficiency in buildings grew, that’s where we meet. You see, glass is one of those materials that allow most of the heat transfers from or into the buildings. This puts the burden on HVAC (Heating ventilation and Air conditioning) systems to work more. As a result, you experience higher capital consumption in form of energy bills. This wasn’t truly realized until global warming hit us with climate change.
As climate change awareness became common, governments took it seriously and started to make policies and building codes to align with the betterment of the environment. The major point under consideration here is the energy efficiency of a building as there is no building that doesn’t consume energy. So, MYCREST (Malaysian carbon reduction & Environmental sustainability tool), a certification program, was developed by CBID which provides ratings developed to indicate an energy efficiency and carbon footprint of a building throughout its life cycle. This includes the operational carbon footprint also. At this point, low e-glass and glazed glass start to make a whole lot of sense .
You see, as I told you earlier, most of the unwanted or wasteful heat transfer occurs through the glass as it’s transparent and not as dense and thick as walls. Due to this reason, your rooms are behaving like a greenhouse. This is a major hurdle in making your home or office energy efficient and less resource-consuming. Probably now you’re understanding why your energy bills are higher than you expect.
Glazed windows and low e-glass is the key to the cost savings that we provide. Now imagine getting a 30% discount on your annual electricity bill. That’s like getting 3 months of electricity for free. For a moment, the vacation trip you were planning for a long time or that down payment of that car you have been dreaming of seems like a possible reality .
At Glasito, we aim to bring solutions for energy savings and operational lowering carbon footprint of your building and helping you achieve green credentials and certifications that allow you to be environmentally friendly while keeping your wallet happy.
