The colder months in West Texas bring chilly air but definitely not less sunshine. A lot of the sun's heat is reduced is the winter because of the lower temperatures. Interestingly though, the ultra-violet rays that fade upholstery and cause sunburn and skin cancer are actually amplified 85-90% when there is snow on the ground. Most window films will reduce up to 99.9% of UV rays. This will help protect your employees, loved ones, and personal possessions.
Glare can be reduced significantly with window film. Think of the light coming through the windows onto your office computer screen. That annoyance could be reduced by installing window film to create a more comfortable workspace for employees. This, in turn, will benefit the business by increasing productivity.
Who doesn't want to reduce energy bills? When you think of window tinting you probably think of heat reduction, but it can also retain heat. In the colder months the process of convection is more of our concern. When you are heating your office or home, the heat is looking for the cold spot in the room to travel to. When the heated air hits the interior surface of the glass the air is cooled, becomes denser, and drops to the floor. This air rush is often perceived as a cold draft, causing the thermostat to be adjusted up. Unfortunately, each 1-degree increase in the thermostat setting increases energy use by 2%. Applying window film can help regulate the temperature of the glass. With window film on the glass acting as an insulator, the heated air no longer recognizes the window as the cold spot. Climate control is finally achieved.
