Simulation System
Dallas-based HanitaTEK has launched their new EnergyPlus/ EFILM fenestration energy efficiency simulation system and fenestration library.

The EnergyPlus system calculates heating and cooling loads that are crucial to maintaining thermal control setpoints. The windows-based EFILM program compares energy use of existing fenestration systems against that fenestration with the addition of HanitaTEK window film.
