How to reduce excessive heat build up in your home


Finally summer has arrived to Ireland! The sun is shining and temperatures have been steadily in the 20’s and even reaching the 30’s. This is all brilliant news except for the fact that our buildings are often not equipped to deal with the sun and all that comes with it.


Excessive heat build-up in your home or office can make it very uncomfortable, almost unbearable during the day and even at night. Now you could use blinds or curtains to block the sun but then you are also blocking out light and your views. However all is not lost and there are some ways to prevent the heat build-up before it becomes a problem.


Sun Control Window Films are a cost effective and efficient solution, available in a range of varying tints so you can choose one that best suits the look of your home, office or business. They are proven to reduce glare and excessive solar heat build-up by 80% while still allowing in a maximum amount of natural light.


We are often asked how is that possible? The answer is there are three different types of sunlight; visible light, ultraviolet light and infrared light. Visible light is the sunlight that we see during the day, ultraviolet light is the harmful rays that cause sun damage and fading and then infrared light is the heat energy aspect of the trio. Window film reduces excessive heat gain by reflecting the infrared light. It can also reflect UV rays depending on the film but it still allows the visible light through so you can enjoy the benefits of it without the downsides.


When choosing your window film, the tints and finishes available depend on the range you choose but there are plenty of options, from natural to mirror effect. Each of these will have different properties but our experienced team can walk you through the options, provide data sheets and samples so you can make an informed decision.
