Dimmable electrochromic windows are associated with immense environmental benefits. They can reduce the need for electricity for air conditioning and lighting a room. This is because when in their darkened state, they area able to reflect about 98% of the sunlight that falls on the them. This is beneficial to people that are suited in areas that experience a lot of direct sunlight and heat. This way they save on the consumption of electricity which comes majorly fro non-renewable sources and hence help in environmental conservation.
Offer privacy and security.
These windows use the smart-tinting glass technology to reduce visibility from the outside to none. This way its gives privacy to occupants in a room. Using a switch, it is easy to change these smart windows from transparent to tint state in a few minutes. This has reduced the need for setting up curtains and blinds to get privacy. They also more reliable in terms of security than other windows and electric curtains.
Whether its darkening windows to prevent fading of craft, tinting for privacy or reflecting excess sunlight for air-conditioning, dimmable electrochromic windows offer the most convenience. These states can be achieved with or without occupants in a room. And they can also be switched from one shade to another in seconds.
Easy to operate and improve functionality of a room.
Dimmable electrochromic windows are electronically operated and as such can be controlled using a switch or by use of sunlight sensors. When using sensors, the process is automated and does not need a lot of human control. This way they get to sense the intensity of the sun and change with accordance in the changes of sun rays. When there is a lot of direct sunshine and heat they tend to reflect most of it away and vice versa. By doing this they help in enhancing the beauty of a room as make it useful in all weather and time.
These smart windows are said to save up to9% of total energy consumption. They use most of the heat from the environment to do functions that are otherwise performed using electricity. This saves on the cost that would have been used for installing air-conditioning equipment as well as the cost of running those equipment. The only use some little energy to change opacity but does not need to maintain it.
