Wouldn't it be great if every company and institution could afford to install the latest in energy saving HVAC equipment. Unfortunately, in these troubled economic times, the money for such expensive upgrades is just not there. Halcyon Shades offers a lower cost alternative to expensive HVAC upgrades by providing highly effective thermal control in the building envelope. Halcyon Shades reject heat in both directions. In the summer, they bounce heat causing infrared light back out the window and in the winter, they contain furnace heat in the building. This allows even the biggest buildings to set back their HVAC systems to use less energy.
Halcyon Shades, especially when installed with our optional side rail systems, can reduce the refrigeration effects of glass. Halcyon Shades, even without side rails, can contain air flow from forced air HVAC systems from passing over glass and creating unwanted thermal exchange. It is almost like having an extra pane of glass even in heavy plate glass window systems.
Halcyon Shades provide superior thermal control all year round.
