Houston is HOT

In the past few days I have been to Dallas, San Antonio, Galveston and Houston. We have 3 projects starting up this week - installing either clear or solar security film on houses, businesses and schools.

Dallas and S.A. were 105 degrees. It felt like xrays to walk around outside. Right now I am in a small commercial building owned by the former mayor of Pasadena - we are putting 8 mil solar security film on the windows.

The installer has a "BTU" meter to measure heat transfer. With the sun directly hitting the window it was reading 111-113 BTU - but when the film was placed in front of it the reading dropped to 34 - a 70% drop in solar heat! Amazing.

I'm on the run. More later...
