Heat Blocking Window Film for Palos Verdes Homes Posted on January 6, 2017January 6, 2017 by Steven John Palos Verdes Heat Blocking Window Tint The average home in Palos Verdes, California spends up to 50% of its annual energy costs on climate control. This is true when the household runs the air conditioning and fans to keep the residence cool in the summer and when the heat is on during the surprisingly cool days of the wintertime. What comes a surprise to most Palos Verdes residents is that as much as 30% of their overall cooling and heating costs come as a direct result of their windows. Ironically, glass windows allow in most of the heat that makes a home uncomfortable on hot days and allow out most of the warmth that makes a home cozy when it’s cold. That means more use of AC in the summer and more reliance on the furnace in the winter. Or, in other words, more windows mean greater overall HVAC costs. But with high quality window film Palos Verdes residential life becomes much more affordable and more comfortable, too. That’s because sun control window film can both reduce heat in the summer and add insulation that maintains interior temperatures all year round. Heat Control Window Film for Palos Verdes Homes Sun control window film blocks out a majority of the sun’s infrared light, and it is this portion of the spectrum that is largely responsible for warming a property’s interior. In fact, infrared light can cause interior warming even when it is not shining directly on a window, so window tint keeps your Palos Verdes home cooler during all hours of the day, even when it is overcast but warm out. Window film also helps protect your prized home’s interior by blocking as much as 99% of the harmful UV rays that can fade and discolor wood floors, carpets, upholstery, and more. Contrary to the popular perception of Southern California weather, the Palos Verdes Peninsula actually sees more cool days per year than hot days. Window film can help keep your Palos Verdes home comfortable and cost-effective on those colder days, too. Quality window film adds a layer of insulation to a pane of glass that can be as effective a source of insulation as installing double paned windows, and at a fraction of the cost. For most Palos Verdes homes, window film will begin to pay for itself right away, and pay for itself and begin to save you money in terms of energy cost savings in as little as two or three years. Were you to replace all the windows in your home, you would not see the same savings for more than a decade at least. By helping keep the heat outside during the summer and helping to maintain your desired interior temperature all year round, window tint makes a Palos Verdes home less expensive to maintain. By keeping you and your family more comfortable, it makes your Palos Verdes home more pleasant each and every day. Window film installed to block heat.
