What Home Window Film is Right for You?

Professional Window Tinting Tips & Tricks

Many people dream of a home with expansive windows that offer beautiful views and natural lighting. While windows offer numerous benefits in terms of the aesthetics of your space, there are also some drawbacks that many homeowners don’t consider until the issues arise. Windows welcome damage from UV rays, uncomfortable temperatures, and can even make your home vulnerable to unexpected events such as break-ins or natural disasters. Your home is a place you should feel comfortable, in regard to both its temperature and the level of safety. Not to mention, you shouldn’t have to make the choice between a bright, naturally-lit space or the safety and comfort of your home. With home window film, you can achieve the best of both worlds.

Why Window Film?

Residential window film provides numerous benefits to your home, whether that be through enhanced security, improved aesthetics, or increased UV protection. With a variety of functionalities, there is a window film catered to meet the specific needs of your home. Perhaps you need improved insulation in the summer and winter months with Thinsulate window film. On the other hand, you may want to create a unique design element utilizing decorative window film. No matter the application, there is a residential window film solution perfect for your home.

Types of Home Window Film

Sun Control Window Film

The sun shining through windows can cause bothersome glare, inconsistent temperatures, and hot spots. Additionally, windows allow UV rays to damage furnishings, flooring, and even our skin. Sun control window film allows natural light to freely flow into your space, while also mitigating the issues typically associated with the sun. Say goodbye to faded hardwood floors, furniture, and artwork — sun control window film rejects up to 99.9% of UV rays. This not only extends the life of your valuables, but it also saves you from replacing them in the long run.

The film’s ability to mitigate hot spots creates comfortable temperatures. Not to mention, it reduces the amount of work your HVAC system must do to keep the inside temperature consistent. If you’re looking to add years to the life of not only your flooring and furnishings but also your HVAC system, consider utilizing sun control window film.

Safety & Security Window Film

While windows welcome natural light and beautiful views, they also make your home vulnerable to intruders, natural disasters, and other unexpected events. Take control of your home with safety and security window film! This tear-resistant film is designed to stretch rather than shatter upon impact, protecting people and property inside from flying shards of glass. Additionally, this protective film provides extra time to react in the event of an emergency. For added protection, safety and security window film can be paired with 3M Impact Protection Attachment Systems. Invest in the safety of your home when you invest in safety and security window film.

Decorative & Privacy Window Film

While open and bright floor plans are valued by homeowners, they also minimize the amount of privacy in your space. However, with decorative and privacy window film, that doesn’t have to be the case! Featuring a variety of patterns, colors, and textures, decorative and privacy window film adds both privacy and a design element to glass surfaces. Apply this film in bathrooms, garage windows, kitchen cabinets, or patio doors for both increased privacy and improved aesthetics. Additionally, decorative and privacy window film will still allow natural light to enter your space. Customize your level of privacy, without creating a closed-off room.

Thinsulate Window Film

We’ve all experienced poor insulation by the window in the cool winter months. On the other hand, the sun through the window can create bothersome hot spots in the summer. The constant changing of temperatures can put unnecessary wear and tear on your HVAC system while increasing energy bills. Not to mention, those inside your space will feel uncomfortable. Create pleasant temperatures and increase energy savings with Thinsulate window film.

Applying Thinsulate window film to your windows is equivalent to changing a single pane window to a double pane. It rejects heat in the summer months. On the other hand, it retains the heat made by your HVAC system in the dead of winter. Additionally, Thinsulate window film provides UV ray rejection, protecting floorings and furnishing from fading. For improved temperatures and lower energy bills year-round, utilize Thinsulate window film.

Whether you’re looking for increased security, improved aesthetics and privacy, or sun control, there is a window film to meet the needs of your space. No matter the application, rest assured knowing that when you invest in window film, you’re investing in the improved comfort and safety of your home.
