  • Allows natural day lighting, reducing the need for additional lighting
  • Lower absenteeism and increased productivity
  • Extends equipment life by reducing the number of times the heating and cooling systems engage.
  • Reduces Green House Effect in buildings
  • Heat caused by infrared radiation is absorbed by all of the interior surfaces of the building (furniture, floors, walls, office equipment etc.) and absorbed by the greenhouse gases such as water vapor, carbon dioxide, ozone and methane, which slows its (the heat), escape into the atmosphere.
  • The Inflector® reduces the Green House effect by rejecting 74% of the infrared radiation back through the window.
  • Significantly reducing the amount of infrared radiation entering the building,
  • The number of times the HVAC system cycles, reducing the amount of Green House Gases entering the conditioned space

See Through Radiant Barrier Window Insulator Technology alleviates thermal discomfort by reducing heat loss and/or heat gain and can lower heating, cooling and electric lighting costs. They also exhibit inside surface temperatures that are closer to the room dry bulb temperature, resulting in less thermal discomfort for the occupants. Reducing heating and cooling loads lessens the amount of air pollutants entering the conditioned space through the heating and cooling systems, improving the indoor air quality, reducing building related illnesses, and increasing productivity.

Installing Inflector

The Inflector consists of a frame and Inflector

The Frame has 3m tape on one side and magnetic strip on the other side

The protected siding on the tape removed and the frame is attached to the window frame with the magnetic strip facing inside of room.

The Inflector is now attached to frame magnet, silver side facing outside in summer, silver side facing inside in winter.

A dead air space is now created between window and Inflector

For best results at least a 1 to 2 inches of dead air space, more is fine

“In’Flector” Window Insulators address all of the seasonal changes throughout the year keeping the heat in the building during the winter, while keeping the heat from entering the building during the summer.

Energy loss through glazing (windows) is the largest and most variable loss in buildings and has major implications on energy consumption and peak heating and cooling loads

“2009 Buildings Industry Data Book”

In order to increase energy efficiency in buildings one needs to understand “The Building Envelope”.

(what is it and how does it work?)

Your building’s “shell” or envelope is made up of windows, outside doors, walls, foundation, floor, roof, and skylights. The envelope is the barrier between the carefully controlled, temperate indoor environment you maintain inside your building and the fluctuating outdoor environment. By allowing or blocking certain amounts of light, fresh air, heat, cooling and humidity, the envelope functions like a selective filter to make the indoor environment more comfortable. If the envelope works well as a barrier and as a filter, you will use less energy in your lighting and HVAC systems to control the light, temperature, humidity, and fresh air levels .

Windows lose and gain heat in four ways.

Typical Window Summer Performance

Windows provide daylight and a view, but they also allow unwanted glare, heat and damaging UV rays to enter into a home or buildings. This increases interior temperatures and cooling costs, and decreases comfort and productivity. It also results in UV damage to furniture, carpets, etc. Windows are also the highest per capita source of infiltration on the “envelope”.

Typical Window Winter Performance

Windows allow daylight and solar gain which we want in the winter but they also allow the sun’s damaging UV rays to enter. Of great importance also is the fact that thermal heat escapes through the windows day and night when it is colder outside than inside. Since heat travels to cold you lose heat through your windows due to exfiltration (air leakage) and conduction

How the “In’Flector” Radiant Heat Barrier Window Insulator Works

In’Flector Window Summer Benefits and Value

In summer In’Flector Radiant Barrier Window Insulator are positioned so that the reflective surfaces faces out and this rejects 72% of radiant heat (reducing the greenhouse effect in buildings); reflects 65% of solar gain back out through the window (reducing overheating in buildings); stops 92 % of damaging UV rays (reducing fading & sun damage); controls glare (especially for computers & televisions); provides daytime privacy (one way vision); provide cool day lighting with a view; reduces the load, wear, & maintenance on HVAC units. In’Flector reduces cooling demand which reduces energy consumption, saving you money

In’Flector Window Winter Benefits and Values

In winter the In’Flector Window Insulators are reversed so that the silver side (aluminum) is facing inward. In this mode the insulators reflect the thermal heat back into the building reducing heat loss through the windows. In direct sunlight with the black side of the In’Flector facing outward the In’Flector is a passive solar collector absorbing the suns rays and radiating the heat inward; a 4’ X 4’ window in direct sunlight can produce 2096 BTU’s of heat per hour, which is equivalent to a 600 watt electric heater. The damaging UV rays are reflected back outside and the In’Flector air barrier reduces heated air loss (exfiltration). This reduces the load, wear, & maintenance on HVAC units. Reducing heating requirements reduces your heating costs, saving you money.

Energy loss through glazing (windows) is the largest and most variable loss in buildings and has major  implications on energy consumption and peak heating and  cooling loads

  “2009 Buildings Industry Data Book

In the summer and in hot climates if you can reflect the heat back out through the windows, the air conditioning (HVAC) runs less saving you money! In the winter if you can reflect the heat back into the building so it doesn’t escape out through the windows the heating system runs less saving you money on heating costs! Further more if you have south and west facing windows the In’Flector Window Insulator is a passive solar collector; in the sun the solar loading produces free heat!

Made in Canada for the Canadian Climate, Climate Control Blinds regulate the temperature of your home year round to save on heating and cooling. Their effectiveness has been proven with independent laboratory tests and they come with a five year warranty.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A see through Insulating Panel mounted to the inside of windows, doors or skylights. The panel is manufactured of a metallic, coated, polyethylene sheet laminated to a sheet of carbon graphite PVC that is then perforated and laminated to a sheet of clear polyester.

The IN'FLECTOR insulating panel is reversible, so the reflective surface can face outward during the seasons when solar gain is a problem, and the carbon PVC surface can face outward during cold seasons to reflect heat back into the building and collect convective sunlight for conversion to radiant heat. The panel is held in place with magnets which form a virtually air tight seal and inhibits infiltration, conduction and convection while providing additional dead air space for insulation.

The Truth About Windows
Windows are the weakest part of the building envelope, a major source of heat loss, and account for heat gain in the summer and heat loss in the winter; they are necessary for light, ventilation, and view.
A single pane window loses 20 times as much heat as the same area in an adjacent well insulated wall, and a double-glazed window loses ten times as much.
The transfer of heat inside (heat gain) through the windows in the summer raise’s cooling costs and the transfer of heat outside (heat loss) through the windows in the winter raises heating costs. In reality windows are thermal sink holes. What that means is that in an average building (home/office), 25% to 35% of its heat or air conditioning is lost through its windows. The amount heat loss or heat gain through windows depends on whether the windows are single pane glass, clear double pane, Low-E coated, or gas filled, the fact is if you have windows you have heat gain and or heat loss every day of every year.

However, windows can be a source of solar heat gain if they are strategically placed and properly installed and if energy efficient interior window treatments are used.
