How does window film control home temperatures?

Window Film is an amazing technology that has a lot of benefits to recommend it. The least of these benefits is temperature control for your Dallas home. It works in both hot and cold climates and is therefore incredibly versatile and fit for homes across the US. Whether you want to keep more of your heat in during the winter or avoid the heat of the sun rays all summer long–window film is the solutions to your Dallas home’s temperature control needs. It does all of those things and many more. Window film doesn’t obscure views either. In fact, it improves them. Meaning your Dallas home stays more beautiful and more comfortable all year long. If you have ever avoided rooms of your house because they were too hot or too cold– window film is precisely what you need.  

 How Window Film Works

Window film, as you likely know is a film applied to the surface of the glass of your Dallas home. Some windows come with a film like covering but typically these will not be as powerful as a “retrofit” application for existing glass. Window film, therefore is an upgraded form of solar control, safety, privacy, and other desirable features.

The way window film works is by blocking all three forms of solar radiation coming through your windows: visible light we can see, infrared we feel as heat and ultraviolet rays, which are invisible. Therefore, window film an incredibly powerful all-around solar control product because it blocks infrared rays, which cause heat build-up, acts as a sunscreen for your Dallas home and controls glare.

Window film works through a variety of mechanisms depending on the film but common types include:

  1.  Non-reflective and dyed films: mostly absorb solar energy 
  2. Reflective and metalized films: can absorb and reflect solar energy
  3. nano/ceramic films: use high-tech compounds, molecular and nano-technology for “smart” performance

 Window Film Eliminates To Much Heat In Summer

Do your windows let in way too much of the intense Dallas sun in the summer? And probably even the summer too? That glare is more than just annoying–it is the cause of excessive heat in your home even with the A/C running. Sure, curtains and blinds can stop the glare from hurting your eyes and obscuring screens but they do nothing to stop heat transfer. They also keep out the natural light you love so much. Window Film, on the other hand, will not only block the glare but reduce up to 78% of the sun’s heat beating down on your windows. Plus you get all the natural light and views of the Dallas cityscape!   

Window Film Keeps The Cold Away In Winter

Dallas’s weather is fairly temperate but the chill when an ice storm blows in can be terrible. Which is why window film, which traps in the air you pay to heat, while at the same time dispersing the heat of the sun inside. You don’t have to reach for a sweater when sitting near a window when you have window film, because window film eliminates those annoying hot and cold spots. In fact, window film is such a good insulator, it makes single pane windows perform like double. Already have double pane windows? Window film will give you the insulation value of triple-pane!. Save on heating and cooling costs year-round with improved insulation

 Window Film For Energy Efficiency

An astounding 30% of all energy used to heat and cool homes goes right out the window. That’s right, energy loss through your Dallas home’s windows could be costing you thousands. Also, when your home HVAC systems have to constantly run to keep your home at the correct temperature, it really takes a toll. Window film the does more than just save you on energy bills year-round–it also saves you in repairs. HVAC systems are expensive, the more you lessen the load on them with window film, the less you spend fixing or replacing them! Also, certain window films could qualify you for green tax credits.
