From around the corner to around the nation, schools and universities are looking to reduce their energy bills. Some are concerned about fuel costs and the impact on their operating budgets; others are motivated by the desire to reduce their carbon footprints and their impacts on the environment. Professionally installed window film can play a key role in energy savings--some estimate that window film can produce energy savings up to 30 percent. Conducting an energy analysis enables education administrators to determine where window film can yield the most substantial results. Choosing the right kind of window film and the right professional to install it can make classrooms more comfortable and reduce air-conditioning usage. The author discusses the benefits of window film and offers tips on how to identify the right window film. (Contains 1 figure.)
