Regulating the temperature in various rooms in a structure can be a challenge. Certain aspects of a building, for instance the southern side of a building heat up faster and at an uneven rate compared to other aspects like the northern side. Traditional air conditioning units struggle to keep pace, but in doing so, they create problem areas where one side of a building gets too hot, while on the other side occupants complain that they are too cold. The harder an AC unit works the more wear and tear it incurs and the more expensive utility costs become.
Here’s where Solar Control Window Film can help! Solar Control Window Film is a thin sheet if polyester laminate that acts as a barrier to the sun.
