Window film is an extremely thin film which is applied to the interior of windows made of flat glass. The addition of this film to windows in a house can bring many advantages, such as energy reductions, the comfort of the heat and glare and sun protection for floors, families and furniture.
It’s not surprising that the average house wastes around $63 per month on energy, which is roughly $760 per year, according to Department of Energy – considering that 15 percent of a house’s wall space is made of glass and is not a good insulator. To increase the efficiency of windows the majority of homeowners begin by considering replacing windows. The issue is that savings on energy from replacement windows will require 15years of patience attain since that’s the typical time that returns on investment take. Window film is a cost-effective alternative to replacement windows when the aim is to improve the amount of energy savings. When professionally installed, it’s typically one-tenth of the price of replacing windows, and the typically, the ROI is more rapid (sometimes three years or less for top brands).
Consistently Warm Temperatures In Every Room
There’s usually one room in each home that is always warmer or cooler than the other rooms or, in some cases, multiple. Window film can increase the the comfort of a house by controlling the amount of solar energy that enters, and according to the film, dispersing from the windows. Certain films can boost the insulation power of windows with up to 92.
Another method to improve comfort is by reducing glare. Most homeowners believe that the only method of reduce glare on their televisions or computers is to shut the blinds and curtains. Window film is a more bright option for people who don’t prefer to lounge in darkness. It lets sunlight in the interior of the house, while greatly decreasing, and sometimes dissolving, glare from computers and TV screens.
Another major benefit that film offers is protection from sun rays for floors, families and furniture. The damaging ultraviolet A (UVA) or UVB (UVB) radiations enter glass windows that have not been treated. This results in unnecessary exposure to the skin that is a well-known risk factor for skin cancer as well as fading of furniture and flooring. The majority of products block 100 percent UVA and UVB radiations, allowing sunlight to enter your home but not the dangerous UV radiation.
