How To Lower Your Home And Office Cooling Bills This Summer
The weather in Texas is great…except when it isn’t. By that, we mean once it starts to get hot in this great state of ours, it can get downright sweltering. If you haven’t noticed already, you soon will that it is warming up here in Austin and that means high utility bills are right around the corners. It makes sense then that we, at Window Film Austin, are getting a barrage of calls already from homes and offices in Austin ready to mitigate the cost of their climbing cooling bills. This is because the extremely hot Texas summer is can be hard on the budget. When the intense summer heat gets here in full, your utility bills will soar and can get out of control if energy usage from air conditioners, swamp coolers, and fans is not somehow lessened. We know the best way to significantly cut down on utility bills in the summer (and winter too) is by having window tinting installed on your Austin home.
Will Window Tint Keep My Austin Home And Office Cooler?
Window tint is a tried and testing way to lower utility bills. In order to better understand how it accomplishes this, you must first understand the two basic method by which tint tames heat.
Reduces Solar Heat Gain: Essentially, window tint is specifically made, through modern engineering of materials like ceramic and metals, to block and reflect the thermal rays that greatly contribute to heat from the outside affecting your home’s temperature. The increase in temperature comes from something called “solar heat gain”– the transfer of the heat of the sun’s rays onto the glass of your window and then to the air in your home. By reflecting the wavelengths that create heat, window tinting prevents interior heating while still allowing in natural light.
Cool Air Escaping: There is such thing as “throwing money out the window” and that comes in the form of the air that you are paying to cool, escaping through the glass of your windows. Glass without window tint allows cold and hot air to leech out, driving up energy bills and putting unnecessary load on your HVAC system. Window tinting acts as an additional layer of insulation on the glass of your windows, trapping cool air inside.
