Residential Heat Gain

heat_gainIn the summer, most unwanted heat gain comes in the form of sunlight radiating through unprotected glass. This glass is a building’s most vulnerable area for heat gain. The U.S. Dept. of Energy says in its 1994 study, that shading the outside exposed windows or doors is the best way to stop heat build up. ( The Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Clearinghouse says that roughly 40% of heat build-up and heat loss is through windows and doors. External shading is the most effective home treatment to counter these effects. Shading the exposed windows and doors can reduce temperatures by as much as 20 degrees.

Other solutions such as indoor window film or blinds or insulated drapes do not block, reflect, or absorb the solar rays before they pass through the glass. The results are simple, heat builds up inside your home as once the heat is in, it is too late to react.

We use only Phifer Sun Control products that block up to 90 percent of the sun’s heat and glare before it reaches the glass surface. Solar Screens are the leading choice for sun control among architects, builders, and homeowners. Unlike interior window treatment, like drapes & blinds, Solar Screens absorb and dissipate up to 90 percent of the UV rays, heat, and glare before it reaches the window glass.
