Many Texas homes are being built in contemporary styles with lots of large windows. In fact, the trend for larger and larger windows has been going on for a few decades, and here in Texas, we do love our sunshine. These huge windows are great for enjoying your natural surroundings, but can create an equally huge issue when it comes to the amount of energy needed to heat and cool your home. Contemporary home window film can cut those energy costs a substantial amount.
The reason big windows create energy problems is simple: All that glass allows for enormous heat gain in the summer, and lets out the heat in the winter. If you’ve ever sat near a big glass window in the winter, you can almost feel the chill coming right through the glass. And in the summer, you could bake a cake sitting in front of that same window.
Glass, unfortunately, is not just a great conductor of light, it also lets heat and cold right through it. So the bigger the windows, the more energy you’ll need to use to keep your home warm in winter and cool and comfortable in summer. Unless you install contemporary home window film—the kind specifically engineered to cut heat gain in the summer and preserve heat in the winter.
This type of window film is a simple solution that is also cost effective. Your investment will pay for itself in approximately three years, and you can expect to save up to 50 or 60% on your heating and cooling costs.
