With spring around the corner in the Pacific Northwest, now is the perfect time to start thinking about heat and light control in your home or business. The sun will start shining through our windows in no time, and each season brings its own issues for temperature control.
For instance, according to the EPA’s Energy Star U.S. Building Manual, approximately 1/3 of a building's utility bill is caused by heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer. That’s why commercial-grade solar control film is an effective and necessary solution.
For businesses owners and homeowners alike, keeping your space cool or warm is a year-round challenge. It influences comfort and temperature, but it also affects energy bills, furniture, and flooring. No one wants to spend money on quality furnishings only to see them damaged by UV rays. And squinting because of a glare on your television isn’t any fun either!
But for some, keeping a constant temperature is more than a matter of comfort and care for their big-ticket items. It's actually a priority due to the vulnerability of seniors or young children in the space.
If you’re feeling the heat indoors in the summer, or losing heat in the winter, it’s most likely due to your windows. In an average building, that is the most significant source of energy loss. Solar control film can stop up to 85% of radiant heat, 92% of glare, and 99% of UV rays!
Solar Control Film is great for several applications:
Since keeping blinds or shades down all day long isn’t a viable option, many have turned to Solar Control tint film from NWSP. Northwest Solar Protection has tinted windows in cars, homes, and businesses in Spokane for over a decade. They’re known for their professional and prompt installation.
