In hot humid Malaysia climate, all buildings are necessary to install window film for their glass windows and glass facades that getting direct sunlight. It is because the window film is designed to absorb or reflect the incident solar radiation, in order to reduce solar transmission through window glass. The attachment of solar window film on glazing is able to control light and heat penetration and to filter out Ultra-Violet (UV) light, whilst causing the least influence on the building users. The heat reduction effect reduces the cooling demand on air conditioning, thus cuts down the electricity consumption. In the present study, the objectives are to investigate several materials of window film and their functions and to compare between several types of window film in terms of the effectiveness to resist heat. The experiment using four difference types of window film with three samples of each types which are Colour Film, Sputtered Film, Automotive Film and Building Film has been performed at a selected lecturer’s room in Factory 3, Technology Campus UTeM. The results have been recorded and compared for making graphs and analysis. Two calculations have been done which are heat transfer and heat load based on the average of experiment data. The calculation was performed to distinguish the effectiveness of the window film to resist heat from enter the room in order to achieve a human comfort by selection the convenient window film and suitable air-conditioner sizing. The result obtain from this experiment have shown the Building Film is the most excellent window film that help to resist heat followed by Sputtered Film, Automotive Film and the last is Colour Film.
