Window Tint in the Winter?? What???

no comment Posted by

When we think about window tint, we think about the summer and how HOT it can be. Research has proven that a solar control window film not only helps in the summer for keeping cool but also helps in the winter for staying warm.
How does that work you ask? When a window film is installed on your window it re-directs the radiant heat by bouncing back the long-wave radiant waves – Not only are you retaining heat in the cooler months, but your heater isn’t using anymore energy to keep you warm – You are staying insulated, which means Saving Money!!

Solar Heat Gain – refers to the increase in temperature in a space, object or structure that results from solar radiation.

As the outside temperature begins to climb, the sun’s radiant heat is denied the entrance of your home using a solar control window film. Once installed, the HVAC system has a chance to keep the interior cool and comfortable and keeping the sun from heating up the interior of your home is key to Energy Savings!

You’ve worked hard and planned long for your home and all of your furnishing. You may have beautiful views through your windows and you love the light they bring into your home, but these same windows can be a source of major problems with sun damage, excessive heat and glare. Closing your window treatments will not work, treatments still receive damaging UV and infrared rays through the windows. Sun damage can occur even if it’s cloudy and even when the sun is not shining directly on the windows. When window treatments are closed, there goes your view. There is a solution.l_47e638cf55f11ff57ed9df42f4aa0f07
