Use Window Film To Reduce Heat And Glare

Let’s admit it. We’re tired of the heat and glare that comes with standard windows, and we dream of how all-natural sunlight can still stream into our homes without the headache-inducing glare and disruptive heat. There must be a way to reduce heat and glare!?

Retain Benefits Of Natural Light

Window films are a great way to reduce heat and glare in your home, and they can also help you save money on heating and cooling costs and improve the overall look of your home. Window films come in various types — from solar control to security to decorative window film — each type has its own benefits.

Natural light is essential for many people. It can help you feel more energetic and happier, so many people choose to open their windows for fresh air in the morning or keep them open during the day. However, if you live somewhere that gets a lot of sunlight, it can cause glare on your computer screen or TV screen when you’re trying to watch movies or read books. Window film can help eliminate this problem by filtering out certain wavelengths of light. Many people also find that having window film cuts down on energy costs because they don’t have to use their energy-intensive air conditioning system as often when natural light comes through their windows.

Window films can also help keep your home cool by blocking ultraviolet rays that cause heat buildup in glass surfaces such as windows, patio doors, skylights, and mirrors. This helps keep your home comfortable year-round by reducing the need for air conditioning and heaters during hot summer months and keeping utility bills low during winter months when it’s cold outside.

Reduction Of Glare

Window films are available in several different shades and colors to reduce heat and glare from the sun. The effect is similar to tinting your car windows, but the film will last for years without fading or cracking.

The glare reduction is significant for those who work inside during daylight hours. Computer monitors and televisions can be more challenging to see when exposed to bright sunlight. Window films also help reduce eye strain, especially if you spend long hours staring at a computer screen every day.

Glare can cause discomfort and eye strain, making it difficult to work or relax in your home or office space. The most common form of glare is direct sunlight coming through your windows during the daytime hours. When you look at the outside world from inside your home or office space, you are looking through two panes of glass: tinted and one that is clear on top of it. This double pane makes it easier to see outside without being blinded by sunlight.

Prevent Heat Gain

In the summertime, sunlight can heat your house and cause it to lose energy efficiency. If you have a lot of windows, it can make your air conditioner work harder to keep the interior temperature cool. Window film reduces heat gain by filtering out the sun’s UV rays and blocking some visible light. This can reduce temperatures inside your home by 5° to 30°F!

Return On Investment

One of the most significant factors determining whether homeowners should invest in window films is how much money they spend on cooling their homes during the summer months. As with any investment, it’s essential to consider how much money you’re saving with the product to determine its ROI (return on investment).

For example, let’s say that a homeowner spends $300 per month on air conditioning during the summer months. If he installs solar control window film on his windows and lowers his cooling costs by 10%, he’ll save $30 per month — or $360 per year! The ROI for this investment would be about 20%.

Home

Window films can be used as a DIY project for homeowners to reduce heat, glare, and UV rays coming through their windows. This is especially useful in the summer months when you want your home to maintain an optimal temperature. Businesses can also benefit from window film because it helps block excess light that may distract employees or customers. It can also help reduce the heat your office absorbs through the glass in the summer months.

Office

Window films are commonly used in offices to help block out excessive natural light during work hours and make it easier for people to focus on their work when they need it most – early morning or late at night when there’s not enough daylight outside. Window films are also used in hospitals where privacy matters because they allow patients to have privacy without closing their blinds.

Types Of Films

But there are many types of window film out there that offer different levels of protection and aesthetics. Here are some examples:

  • Solar Control Films – These films can help keep temperatures down by blocking up to 99% solar heat gain through windows. This type is ideal for homes with southern exposures and large windows that receive direct sunlight.
  • Reflective Films – Used to enhance the appearance of glass by reflecting light off of it. It makes windows more reflective, which enhances the appearance of your home or office while reducing glare on sunny days.
  • Low-E Coatings – Low-E coatings are designed to reflect radiant heat inside your home while allowing visible light through your windows. This helps keep your indoor temperature lower than without the layer, making your HVAC system run less often.
