With the ever-changing seasons, your home or office will experience many spikes and dips in temperature.
For many home or office owners, the solution for this is to let the HVAC take care of the climate control. Frequent use of the HVAC can lead to high electricity bills and an overtaxed HVAC. A simple and cost-effective way to control your indoor climate is to install window film.
Why should I worry about the heat?
Aside from higher electricity bills due to the HVAC, high temperatures inside homes and offices can make the occupants very uncomfortable.
In an office, the temperature may affect employee performance and this will impact their productivity.
During the winter months, the HVAC might not be enough to keep your interiors warm, but tinted windows can trap heat and help keep your home or office warm for a longer time.
How do window films help control the temperature?
These films are designed to reflect sunlight and help keep the heat out of your home and/or office. Alternatively, they can even trap heat inside your office or home during the cold winter months.
Sunlight is composed of three different kinds of light: ultraviolet light, visible light and infrared light. Of these three, infrared light is responsible for about 50% of heat built up indoors, while ultraviolet light can cause damage to the skin and cause fading in upholstery and furniture.
The films reflect infrared light in sunlight and most of the harmful ultraviolet light, keeping your interiors nice and frosty.
What types of window films are there?
There are many types of films that don’t just help you keep the heat out. They also provide privacy, increase your home or office’s aesthetic appeal, and strengthen your windows to prevent any break-ins or vandalism.
Here are the kinds of films available:
- Security films
- Solar films
- Decorative films
- Specialty films
Should I hire professionals to tint my windows?
The films in DIY kits are self-applicable, although the quality of the films in these kits may be questionable. Installing the films requires precision and unless you have experience, you could have trouble installing them appropriately on your windows.
Professionals always use the best quality films and are experienced in installation according to your home or office’s requirements. They always guarantee a perfect job.
