Window film is a thin film that is sprayed on the interior of windows made of flat glass. Its addition to windows in a house can bring many advantages, like energy cost 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 the home’s wall space is made of glass and is not a good insulator. To boost the energy efficiency of windows the majority of homeowners begin by considering replacing windows. The issue is that the savings in energy costs from replacing windows take 15-20years of patience be achieved, as that’s the average time for returns on investment take. Window film is a low-cost alternative to replacement windows when you want to boost the efficiency of your home. When professionally installed, it’s typically one-tenth of the price of replacement windows. The an average return on investment is more rapid (sometimes three years or less for top brands).
Consistent Temperatures In Every Room
There’s usually one room in each home that is always warmer or cooler than other rooms or, in some cases, many. Window films can improve living space comfort by regulating the amount solar energy that enters, and dependent on the film, it can also block the windows. Certain films can boost the insulation power of windows with up to 92.
Another way to increase the comfort of your home is through reducing glare. Many homeowners believe that the only method of reduce glare on their televisions or computers is to shut the blinds and curtains. Window film offers a brighter option for people who don’t want to be in darkness. It lets sunlight in the house while significantly cutting down, and in many cases dissolving, glare from television and computer screens.
Another major benefit that film gives is protection from sun rays for floors, families and furniture. UVA rays that cause damage to furniture and flooring. (UVA) as well as UVB (UVB) UVB rays can penetrate glass windows that have not been treated. The result is a lack of exposure to the skin and eyes, which is a recognized risk factor for skin cancer and also the fading of furniture and flooring. The majority of products block 100% of UVA and UVB radiations, allowing sunlight to penetrate the house but not the dangerous UV radiation.
