Control Heat Gain in Your Home

Control Heat Gain in Your Home

Heat can feel like an impossible feat to conquer in the summer months. More often than not, individuals solely rely on their air conditioning units to cool homes and combat the heat. However, there are other ways to keep your home cool. Here are money saving tips on how to reduce heat gain in your home without overworking your air conditioning unit, while simultaneously reducing your energy bills.

First of all, what is Heat Gain?

Heat gain is the build up of heat in your home ranging from natural sources, such as sunshine, to the operation of household appliances, such as your oven, washing machine, or clothes dryer. All of these sources produce a significant level of heat gain, in turn, increasing the strain on your air conditioning unit. The following are energy efficient solutions that will reduce the heat gain in your home without increasing your electric bill.

Starting with the #1 Heat Gain Producer

Sunshine entering through windows is the primary natural source of heat gain. Windows alone can account for almost half of a home’s heat gain in the summer months. Take the first step to reducing heat gain in your home by:

  • Applying solar film to your windows: If you do not want to completely block out the natural lighting effects of sunlight, window film is the perfect solution. Many film products, such as Hüper Optik Smart Window Films, reduce the amount of heat in your home but at the same time, they do not impede upon the natural lighting effects of windows and sunlight. Hüper Optik products also reject 99.9% of the sun’s ultraviolet rays– the rays responsible for skin problems and fading of home furnishings.

Work on the Top and Feel the Result at the Bottom!

Your roof and attic can collect a lot of heat with the summer sun endlessly shining down on them. Each day, heat enters through your roof and accumulates in your attic. Before you know it, the heat will transfer down to the cool lower living areas of the home. Thwart this unwanted heat with these effective methods:

  • Coat your roof with a reflecting material or install light-colored roofing materials that absorb solar radiation.
  • As a second line of defense, insulate your attic thoroughly and install an attic ventilation system that will constantly regulate airflow. This will bring in cool air and push out the unwanted hot air.

Shine a New Light on Your Situation

If you try to beat out the summer heat by covering your windows with drapes, curtains, blinds or shades you will now rely only on the overhead light bulbs and lamps in your house to make up for lost light. Although one problem is resolved, another emerges:

  • No matter the size, light bulbs radiate a large amount of heat throughout the house but switching them to compact fluorescent bulbs will not only produce the same amount of light that you desire, it will also save energy and reduce heat production significantly.

Case Study: Texas Citizens Bank

Texas Citizens Bank

Texas Citizens Bank, is a boutique private bank in the Houston area with six locations. Employees of all six free standing structures complained of the high exposure to the western sun. This resulted in all locations closing their blinds on the western facing walls, which is a security risk for financial institutions. To improve comfort from the heat and enhance visibility from the suns glare, Texas Citizens Bank turned to EES Consulting, an energy efficiency solutions firm that provides turn-key energy efficiency and sustainability solutions to one and two story light commercial and industrial businesses. EES Consulting assessed Texas Citizens Bank’s buildings firsthand, and then implemented energy efficient solutions in several locations.

A Customized Solution

As part of the customized solution EES Consulting recommended, was the installation of energy efficient Huper Optik Ceramic 40 Window Film on the banks western facing windows. The resulting financial benefits of this solution were twofold, reducing costs in kilowatts per hour and a reduction in the heat load on the HVAC unit increases the lifetime of the equipment. The less heat that penetrates the banks’ windows, the less work and energy the HVAC unit will have to do to keep each building cool.

Big savings

Before the implementation of EES Consulting’s customized solutions, Texas Citizens Bank was consuming an average of 9,596 kWh per month. After the window film installation improvement, the bank averaged 8,061kWh, a 16 percent decrease for a cost savings of over $1,800.

Mike Cornett, President and Organizing Director, was extremely pleased with EES Consulting’s professionalism, and has recommended EES to many of the bank’s clients.

“The air conditioning units were running full steam ahead prior to the filming just to maintain a comfortable temperature in the lobby and in the offices with western sun exposure,” said Cornett. “We were able to throttle those thermostats back and keep it on a normal temperature. It has just helped out immensely.”
“Without fail, every one of the clients that we’ve referred EES to have been very pleased with them,” he said.

Energy efficiency improvements can positively impact business’ financials. However, in this case that was just a bonus. Mike’s primary goal for the energy efficiency improvements were to make his bank more comfortable for his customers and employees. After the installation, the banks were able to turn their thermostats to a normal temperature without worrying the heat coming in through the windows.

By working with EES Consulting, Texas Citizens Bank was able to reduce costs, increase comfort, improve the customer experience and diminish their impact on the environment.

Methods of Reducing Home Electricity Costs


EES Consulting’s Dan Parsley demonstrates on the morning news how much heat Huper Optik Window Film stops from coming into your home or office. This is just one of a few ways Dan demonstrates of how to help cut electricity costs.

The suns heat can get into your home via bad insulation, the spaces around and under your doors, doggy doors etc., but most of the suns heat gets into your home or office through your windows. Huper Optik Solar Films (window tint) can cut up to 70% of that heat (eg. in the video 300 BTUs to 28 BTUs) saving you money on your energy bills.

Congress Approves Tax Credit Extension for Window Film

Royal Caribbean Cruise Line

Congress has recently passed HR 5771, an extension of tax credits on energy efficient improvements. These energy efficient improvements include window film and allows taxpayers to claim the incentives on their 2014 returns filed in early 2015. Congress stated that they will cover up to 10 percent of the cost of window films to a maximum of $500.

As part of a home or building’s insulation envelope, window films like those manufactured by Huper Optik,  reduces energy consumption by rejecting the sun’s solar energy and UV rays during the hot months of the year. Window films have been formulated to allow in the maximum amount of natural light, all while still protecting you against the sun’s heat, and UV rays. Not known to most, but in the winter months some window film can reflect heat, keeping it in, allowing for less energy consumption.

It has been proven that window films are beneficial in residential and commercial energy efficiency improvements by reducing a property’s carbon footprint. There are many dealers around the country that carry it and  application time is short. It also has been proven that window films have a lower cost than most energy efficient improvements, as well as a faster return on investment. These are just a few reasons window film has made it on HR 5771 allowing consumers to claim the tax credit on their 2014 returns.

Huper Optik Hosts Autobahn’s Advanced Window Film Shaping Course

Royal Caribbean Cruise Line

Presented with an opportunity to host an autobahn Advanced Window Film Shaping course, Hüper Optik USA Director of Business Development, Harry Rahman, and VP of National Sales, John Yard, were curious to see this company, program and window film training in action.

Autobahn today offers the world’s best window film program with the vision to become the world’s premier auto spa. They’ve only been on the scene for a year, but seem to be making a big splash in the market with 16 stores to date. The focus on consumer satisfaction, quality of their Performa Window film product (or window tint as most people know it), and the choice to use the patented Huper Optik Nano-Ceramic films, is why dealers are excited about this program. Gary Clark, the autobahn Program Manager, formerly involved with launching other automotive film brands, had this to say about the company’s current success. “Along with the world’s highest performing non-reflective films, current automotive dealers are upgrading to the autobahn premium program because of the intangibles the program offers.” The no-hassle warranty, advanced window film shaping course, annual continued education and an amazing marketing display (with custom heat demo) shows auto dealers the effort, commitment and support autobahn provides the dealers.

Standing on the sideline watching the training, Harry and John could see what autobahn is bringing to the market. These are not just products they are trying to sell to consumers, they are teaching and encouraging dealers to take the utmost pride, paying strict attention to detail and creating an all-round experience for the customer from the minute they walk into an autobahn shop. A commitment to the end consumer, its people, programs, policies and warranty are autobahn’s competitive edge.
