Summer’s heat is here with a vengeance. Record temperatures are being recorded all over the eastern and midwestern part of the country. Air conditioners are working full time everywhere to keep people comfortable in their homes, and power companies are under tremendous strain just to meet the demand. Yet oftentimes, going inside to “get out of the sun” brings no relief to those who want to cool off…
That’s because the sun’s heat pounds through their windows and sliding glass doors, creating uncomfortable “hot spots;” raising room temperatures, and forcing people to “crank down” the thermostat in a futile attempt to make the interior environment barely livable, let alone comfortable! Pulling draperies and blinds is only a partial “fix.” By blocking your body’s direct absorption of sunlight, it may make you feel some relief; but in truth the heat is already through the glass, where it will only be absorbed by the draperies and re-radiated into the room. It will still cause discomfort and you won’t do much to help your air conditioning run less.
The best way to keep unwanted heat out of your home is to apply a quality window film such as SolarGard® or Panorama®. These films are capable of reducing heat input by as much as 82%! That means stopping heat intrusion before it ever comes through the glass. Window tinting allows your air conditioning to cool your space more effectively and more efficiently; reducing your electric bills and making your home a truly comfortable refuge from the relentless summer sun. And while these films are making you comfortable, they can lower your electric bill by as much as 30% and protect against interior fading by stopping 99% of the harmful ultraviolet light.
