December 6, 2023

While everyone enjoys spending some time outside during the warm weather, it’s always nice to come inside and enjoy a cool, lovely house. Unfortunately, the sun could shine its rays through the windows during the sunny months, heating the space and making it uncomfortable. Luckily, there’s a simple yet effective solution that can help improve your home’s comfort without blocking sunlight from your space – window film!

Window Films Help Improve Comfort By:

Blocking Heat

Many people try maximizing the amount of natural light entering their homes for that bright, airy feel. But this comes with its drawbacks. Sunlight can enter through the windows and heat the space. You may think that the only way to solve this is to close the curtains or blinds, which will end up eliminating natural light!
However, window film offers the benefit of giving your space ample natural light without letting in the sun’s heat. 3M Window Film products such as the 3M Prestige Series block up to 97% of the sun’s infrared light and up to 60% of heat. This should help regulate the temperature of your indoor space without sacrificing sunlight.

Minimizing Glare

When hot sun rays enter your home, they can not only create uncomfortable temperatures inside but also cast glare across screens and surfaces. Picture this, you and your family are enjoying a great show on an easy Sunday morning, and the sun gradually blasts glare across your screen! It makes it almost impossible to focus, not to mention cause unnecessary eyestrain and even headaches.

Window film will minimize the glare in your home. You can now say goodbye to unbearable glare and eye strain, while not sacrificing the natural light getting into your space.

Additional Benefits of Window Film

Protection from UV Rays

Aside from improving comfort, window film can also help enhance protection from harmful UV rays. UV rays are the leading cause of fading in flooring and furnishing. Window Film removes up to 99% of UV rays, which can help slow down the fading process and improve the lifespan of your furnishings. 

In addition, window film can help protect the skin of you and your loved ones. Keep in mind that exposure to UV has been linked with various skin cancers, and many people still don’t realize that you can be susceptible to harm from UV rays even when indoors. Window film is recognized as an effective UV protectant by the Skin Cancer Foundation. 

Enhanced Energy Efficiency

HVAC systems have to work extra hard to maintain the desired interior temperature when the sun heats a space. This could lead to excessive wear and tear on your unit, which could drive up energy costs. Window film can effectively reduce the sun’s heat entering your home, which boosts energy efficiency and adds years to the life of your HVAC system. By regulating indoor temperatures, window film can help enhance comfort while lowering energy bills. 

There are many more reasons to invest in window film, whether you’re looking to achieve higher energy efficiency, improve home comfort, or minimize fading. Fortunately, sun control window film can offer you these benefits and more while maintaining a properly lit space.
