Do you like home improvement projects? If you answered yes, you should really consider all the benefits a professionally installed window film can offer. In this article, we will discuss the benefits of window films. The benefits for a homeowner and why they should consider it for home improvement projects.
Here are some points that were brought up in the article:
- Color Neutral Options – Your windows will save energy but give up next to nothing in light quality.
- Lower Bills – In hot weather, solar-control films can block up to 80 percent of the solar energy coming through windows. This cuts down on air conditioning.
- Added Protection – Visible light lies on the spectrum between ultraviolet, which damages furniture, and infrared, which beams heat. Treated windows will block 99 percent of UVA and UVB rays, thus greatly slowing the deterioration and fading of drapes, carpet and furniture.
- Decorative Applications – Today’s window films also can inexpensively make clear glass look etched or frosted for privacy or a decorative effect.
Not a fix. If your window is in bad shape, leaking or poorly insulated, adding film won’t fix that. Deteriorating windows should be replaced. However, if your windows are in good shape, don’t replace them just for energy efficiency. Try film first.
