- Exterior sunshades (plus transport and installation)
- Larger HVAC systems
- Increased energy usage
- Lighting & cooling solutions
- Peak demand charges

“Windows should protect us from the elements such as wind, rain, cold, heat, and glare. SageGlass does that, exceeding ASHRAE standards. But it also lets you control the level of sunlight and heat gain, reducing overall energy loads – heating, cooling, lighting – by up to 20 percent and peak energy demand up to 26 percent. Daylighting control also lowers operational costs by eliminating the need for additional blinds, shades or louvers.”
