ENERGY SAVING WINDOW FILM
Energy Saving Residential & Commercial Film
Window Film Energy Savings for Your Business:
Each year, the average American household spends $1,500–2,500 on energy bills. *
Often over 40% of that cost is for heating and/or cooling. The Windows and doors can greatly affect the cost of keeping your home or office comfortable and energy efficient. Energy saving Window film
can help you save energy on your existing windows or doors… while helping with comfort. This can be installed in your Jacksonville Home or office at a much lower cost than replacing the glass.
Window Film for Energy Savings
Solar gain (also known as solar heat gain or passive solar gain ) refers to the increase in thermal energy (heat) of a space, object, or structure as it absorbs or retains this solar radiation. The amount of solar gain a space experiences is a function of the total sun hitting your windows and doors and of the ability of your doors and windows to resist or repel this solar radiation. Window film is a solution that helps resist this solar radiation.
Why does this room get hot?
Objects hit by sunlight absorb and or retain their visible and short-wave infrared components, increase in temperature, and then re-radiate that heat at longer and longer infrared wavelengths. Glass allows visible light to pass through almost unimpeded, once that light is converted to long-wave infrared radiation by materials indoors, it is unable to escape back through the window. This trapped heat causes solar gain via a phenomenon known as the “greenhouse effect”. The longer wavelengths cannot leave back through the window. In buildings, excessive solar gain can lead to overheating within a space, but it can also be used as a passive heating strategy when heat is desired. So in a Greenhouse, effectively creating the Greenhouse effect is a good thing. In a cooling climate such as we have here in Jacksonville Florida this can create an undesirable situation.
How can All Spec Sun Control save me the cooling energy cost?
Energy saving Window films affect and reduce the solar heat gain coming through your windows. Window film improves the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) of your windows. The SHGC is the fraction of radiation admitted through a window, both directly transmitted and absorbed and subsequently released inward. SHGC is expressed as a number between 0 and 1. The lower a window solar heat gain coefficient, the less solar heat it transmits.
So the lower the SHGC the better the window is doing at keeping solar heat gain out. All Spec Sun Control Window film can lower the SHGC of the windows in your home or business!
- Our window films are energy efficient and are helpful for your windows. All Spec Sun Control can improve the SHGC of your existing windows. All Spec Sun Control can save cooling energy costs in your Jacksonville or Ponte Vedra home, and improve the comfort of your overheated living spaces or offices.
