Reflect that Heat, But be Aware.

Window films can help you solve problems with heat, glare, fading and privacy without blocking your view. It’s a simple, cost-effective way to increase your home’s comfort, energy-efficiency and overall appearance. All you need are a few common tools, a helper for large windows and some free time in the morning or evening to make your home the coolest house on the block.

Window films offer year round benefits and beauty to your home. A quality residential window film is capable of stopping up to 80% of the heat that would otherwise enter a building. And certain types of window films can block up to 99% of damaging ultraviolet rays that are known to reduce the sun’s fading effect on fabrics and furniture.

But; from personal experience, that same window film can generate sufficient heat between the panes of a thermal window to break down the sealing membrane that seals the two halves of your window together. The result will be humidity entering that space and creating an unpleasant distraction from the beautiful outlook you once had. So check first with your window manufacture before applying the film and get their endorsement (preferrably in writing) before you start.
