Except in the sweltering summer here when the sun beats down on the complex- and things get hot. The fact of the matter is condo owners here in Salt Lake City spend a lot of money on A/C each year. And the reason why you constantly blast the A/C in your condo is actually–your windows. Solar heat gain is a real problem for condo owners and costs them big time. So what can you do to reduce solar heat gain on the windows of your Salt Lake City condo and down and enjoy life to the fullest? The answer is simple and achievable–have solar control window film installed! It will keep things cool, lower utility bills and it has a bunch of other benefits too!
How Does Solar Window Film Works To Keep Condos Cooler
Some solar films are metalized and work not only to block UV rays but reflect the heat back up and away from your window. Other solar control films are non-metalized and work through ceramics absorbing heat and nanotechnology to give your windows that optically clear and natural look. Regardless of how they work, the results are always significantly lower interior temperatures even under the intense high-altitude sun here in Salt Lake City. This also means a reduction in utility bills too–which our customers just love. However, the benefits of solar control window films don’t end there. In fact, these amazing tints and films do more than just cool things off.
