Heat Reducing Film

window-tint-diagram.pngSolar control films reduce additional heat by limiting solar energy. Solar radiation is made up of UV radiation, light and near-infrared radiation. Out of the three parts of sunlight, near-infrared radiation makes up a majority of the solar spectrum, followed by visible light and UV light. When energy from the sun hits your window, some of the solar energy is soaked up and some is reflected by the window, but a majority of it passes through the glass. With so much radiation entering your home, you may need to crank up the cooling system. This boosts the utility prices for you and makes your home or building use more energy. 
 Solar control films will:

  • Boost the performance of the current windows on your home or building
  • Reject over three-fourths of the heat coming in through your windows
  • Offer an option to add privacy to your space

 Avoid Fading With UV Protection

How to Reduce Window Glare 

Glare reducing film is a great product as an alternative to blinds and an alternative to curtains. Wouldn't you rather have your shades or curtains open all day rather than having to fight the sunlight in order just to see out clearly? You've probably had some trouble with glare on your monitors or TV screens at home or work. This irritating problem can make it hard to enjoy, and more importantly, see what you're doing. Reflective surfaces such as the screens on home or office electronics have better visibility without direct sunlight. Eliminating excess light makes it easier to see your devices in addition to making outside views easier to see.reduce-glare.jpg

Applying these films to your glass will:

  • Lower glare for better visibility out your windows day or night
  • Block up to 94% of glare

In addition to reducing glare by darkening your windows, window film for homes will block heat from windows and privacy films will provide privacy for windows. One way film is a great product to darken windows and add privacy to any window.

Be Energy Efficient

Homes and businesses in our country are responsible for approximately 40% of the national energy consumption. These numbers underline the urgent need to upgrade existing residential and commercial structures with more energy efficient glass with new film products. Solar window tint can reduce heating costs and reduce cooling costs.

Office and home window tinting delivers:

  • Less heat coming through your glass
  • Boosted HVAC efficiency while lowering electric bills
