With the summer setting in, sun's rays start glaring into our homes through every possible transparent and translucent pieces of glass. The biggest drawback of sun's rays is that they tend to drastically heat up the rooms and the house. As a result, the heat builds up and makes you extremely uncomfortable, in spite of powerful air conditioners. This phenomenon becomes especially uncomfortable if you have a patio and a door leading to it. The sun's rays invade a cool room at an accelerated rate and charge up the entire room with heat. This heat further increases if the patio is made up of stone.
'Heat Transfer Through Radiation' is the working principle of these devices. Every material, when heated to specific temperatures, emits heat in the form of electromagnetic waves in the infrared range. Most conventional heaters were based on the principle of heat transfer through convection, which is not as efficient as radiative heat transfer.
If you want to do something out-of-the-box and unconventional, then this idea is perfect for you. Instead of getting something added to your patio door window, you can simply get stained glass windows. There are sure to be a lot of glass outlets where you can get beautiful stained glass, preferably in dark colors, to keep the sun's blazing light at bay. It will give your home a traditional look and feel. If you can't find stained glass, and if you're adept at glass painting, take it up as a project and paint some fantastic designs on the glass yourself. If not even that, you can surely find an artist, a family member or a friend to do the painting.
