Brand New Bungalow Over Heating
Even with a portable Air Conditioning unit the temperatures are unbearable
The customer had only recently bought the new build bungalow and had spent some time landscaping and tendering to the walled garden but couldn’t enjoy it or watch the birds at the feeders because they had the blinds permanently closed to try and combat the heat. They purchased a portable air conditioning unit and had had a hole built into the wall for the exhaust port but this wasn’t powerful enough to make the difference they needed. The energy consumption of the electrically powered A/C unit was eye watering. They wanted to enjoy their retirement in their new home, be comfortable and look at their garden and watch the wildlife.
A powerful medium shaded neutral toned solar control glass coating. After some discussion looking at different samples and photographs of the various films fitted the customer was guided to the best product for their needs and tastes.
Solar Gard Sterling 40
A home that could be enjoyed even when the sun was shining. The customer immediately felt the difference and ordered Phase 2 before we had returned to base. They loved the look of the product the extra privacy whilst having the ability to see the garden and watch the birds. The front of the house with the bedrooms got very hot in the summer mornings even with the heavy shutters fitted and forced them out of bed but now they could decide when they got up rather than the internal temperatures dictating rise and shine times.
The customer will see a marked reduction in internal temperatures and reductions in energy consumption and bills whilst seeing at least 50% less damage to internal furnishings.
“Our house is east/west facing and earlier in the year I was fishing around the internet looking for something in the solar heat deflection department as the rear rooms get really hot in the afternoons.
I came across the name of Solar Gard and liked the sound of their product. From their website I was put onto CoolGlass. So I phoned and spoke to Mark who was very helpful explaining all about it to me. I said it sounded good but I’d think about it.
About three months later the weather turned hot so we got Mark to come round and give us a quote and tell us all about it again, said OK and arranged a date for installation. This was done with no problems and no mess (you could not tell that anyone has been in and done anything).
Mark had only been gone about one hour and we were sitting in the lounge when my wife said to me “I’m sitting with my feet in the sun and there not getting hot” so I said shall I get him to come back and do the front as we had had the foresight to get a quote for the front windows while he was here. I think we hold the record for the fastest second order Mark has ever had. So the front was done.
We have now had the films fitted for two months and since then we have found that the house is 4-5 degrees cooler overall and the slight tint is not too heavy that it looks overcast all the time. The other added bonus is that the portable air conditioner in the kitchen which used to struggle on sunny afternoons to reduce the temperature but now turn it on and the temperature drops. So all in all it makes quite a bit of difference to our lives.
The other added bonus is that if you like watching birdies in the garden, due to the reflective nature of the film they cannot see you move around and don’t fly away.
So it’s a big thank you to Mark and all his knowledge and experience for this and we would not think twice in recommending or using him again (if we had any more windows).
And it’s certainly worth getting one of his magic e-clothes for cleaning windows to a streak free finish because it really works.”Mr & Mrs Farr, Market Rasen, 27 September 2016
