This month’s client spotlight is the Foley Federal Building in downtown Las Vegas. Through a thermal imaging study, Thermolite was able to illustrate to building management how much heat was able to enter the building through its inefficient windows.
The photos below show temperatures of outside glass around 85-90 degrees compared to an outside temperature of 100 degrees with an inside temperature of 72 degrees. The difference in surface glass temperature before and after the Thermolite installation is about 8 degrees–which translated into thousands of dollars per month in energy savings.
While the windows installed are primarily a blast window designed to protect from the impact of a bomb blast, but there is a thermal benefit as well. The window system also sealed the building envelope so it eliminated any air infiltration through window frames.
