The Best Film to Reduce Solar Heat Gain and Lower Energy Bills
Many times solar heat gain is a problem, however, tinted or mirrored window films block unwanted heat but reduce visible light and darken interiors. Stores with dark films on their windows may have to increase lighting to compensate for the decrease in visible light. Increased utility costs defeat the major benefit of the film – cost savings. Additionally, in retail environments, dark films on windows may prevent customers outside from seeing inside and staff inside from seeing out.
Many utility companies offer rebates for window film; up to $1.50 per square foot.
“For us, putting dark film on our store windows was no solution,” explained RaceTracâs Joe Chastine.
“Customer need to see in at night and our people need a clear view of the gas pumps outside.”
“Visually clear at night is a big deal for customer and employee safety,” said Danny Ward of Quik Trip.
The best solution to overheating is spectrally-selective clear film.
Transparent, almost colorless spectrally-selective window film offers the best ratio of visible light transmission to heat and UV rejection. Clear and almost colorless films do not change the aesthetics of existing glass be it clear or tinted, nor do they change the color of the light entering the facility. These films are constructed with a scratch resistant coating on one side and an adhesive coating on the other, allowing for retrofit application to existing glass. The new Prestige films reduce up to 55% of solar heat gain while letting up to 70% of the light in.
