As the world becomes more economical and environmentally friendly, many things are changing for the better. One fantastic aspect that has come out of this is commercial solar controlled glass, a relatively new concept that saves you money as well as helping the environment due it being energy efficient.
What is solar control glass?
Solar control glass is a hi-tech product which has been developed by the glass industry which allows natural sunlight to pass through to light up buildings, but still reflects a large amount of the sun’s heat away.
But what are the main benefits?
We will summarise these below:
No more unbearable temperatures
Since a lot of the sun’s heat gets reflected, it means the space on the other side of the glass is as light as it would be if it were a normal window, but a lot cooler thanks to less intense heat from natural sources.
Reduce heating/cooling costs
As a lot of the heat is reflected and absorbed by the window, it means you will not need to cool down the rooms as much with air conditioning in the summer, meaning the bills will be lower. It then works in reverse in winter, as it doesn’t let as much cold air in, meaning the heating costs will also be reduced.
Not only does the solar controlled reduce the heat, it also reflects the light, resulting in you not getting the horrible glare on your computer screen which often leads to reduced productivity. Less reflection additionally means that you will not have to pull down the blinds or constantly squint whilst going about your day-to-day duties.
