As the second largest element of a window, the window profiles plays an important role in noise and heat reduction.

The thermal break helps minimize heat transfer and maximize your energy savings.

Calculate your savings

The average 24,000 BTU household air conditioner in the Malaysia consumes 1,800 kWh of electricity annually. That translates to 150 kWh per month. That costs 602 MYR per year at the national average electricity rate of 0.334 MYR per kWh, or 50 MYR per month.

Example calculation

Your current bill: 602 MYR / year

Average savings: 47% (282.94 MYR / year)
over 10 years: 2829.4 MYR
over 20 years: 5649,8 MYR

If you're using multiple or larger air conditioner units, savings increase.
