Keep Cool with Solar Glass

In warm climates, and indeed, even in cool climates that experience warm summers, glass features - whether in the form of windows, conservatories, skylights or doors - can present a problem. Due to the nature of glass, incoming sunlight is inhibited from performing as it naturally would. Instead of reflecting off the surface and radiating back in to the atmosphere, it is trapped in buildings. This can result in a fortune being spent on air conditioning and fans - both of which use precious energy and cost money to install and run. While effective at reducing temperature, fans and air-conditioning do little for the glare that arises from sunlight, which is dangerous for eyesight and can make the environment a less pleasant one.

There is however, an easier solution. What many people don't realise is that the type of glass that you choose has an impact on the amount of heat that is retained.
