Despite popular belief, summer is the busiest time of year for airports. More people travel through airports in the months of June and July than they do during the holidays. All those warm bodies can generate a significant amount of heat. Combined with the brutal summer sun, it’s easy for airports to heat up inside and become uncomfortable.
One great way that you can control temperatures in your Texas airport is by installing window film. Window film is an excellent solution for blocking heat without obstructing the views from your airport. And it can help you save a significant amount of money on energy costs.
How Does Window Film Block Heat?
Airports are made up of hundreds of square feet of glass. Passengers want to watch the planes taking off and coming in. And being able to see the activity on the tarmac is important for airport employees. Unfortunately, all of that glass is far from helpful when it comes to energy efficiency. Glass heats up easily, especially during the summer, and eventually all that warm air transfers inward.
But there’s a solution! Texas airports can use window film to prevent solar heat gain and keep indoor spaces comfortable for travelers. Window film is unique from other climate control methods because it does not require structural changes and it doesn’t change the clarity of glass. Blinds and double pane windows do. Window tint uses spectrally selective technology to control what type of light frequencies pass through airport windows. Heat is blocked while visible light travels freely.
How Can Your Airport Benefit from Window Film?
Retrofitting the windows of your Texas airport with window film can be advantageous in many ways. Here are some of the benefits of solar window tinting:
