How Can Window Film Reduce My Home Energy Costs?
Clear skies in Texas mean beautiful sunny days. But during the summer, when your home is exposed to the sun for a prolonged period of time, it absorbs heat and causes your air conditioning system to have to work harder. And at the end of the month, you’re left sweating over an enormous utility bill.
Window film works to counteract this effect by controlling how much heat and what type of light your home absorbs. It works exactly like the air filter in your car, except it filters light instead. When the sunlight hits your home windows, the light frequencies that carry heat and uv radiation are restricted from entry and filtered out, while visible light is allowed to pass through.
This results in your home absorbing less heat so that when you set your hvac system to a certain temperature it stays that way. Hvac run times are shorter, there’s less glare on tv screens, and your home and family are protected from the heat and cancer causing uv rays.
