Window Film: The Solution For Reducing Energy Consumption

Windows are everywhere, but have you considered how much they may be costing you? At first it might seem like a strange question to ask, but with prices rising left and right it pays to save on every aspect of your life. Windows cause an excessive amount of energy waste due to their lack of insulation. According to the Department of Energy, about 30% of a home’s heating energy is lost through windows. In the cooling seasons, about 76% of all sunlight that falls on standard double-pane windows enters to become heat. Window coverings may help with the loss of energy, but window tinting has proven to be the best method when it comes to reducing energy consumption and saving money.

What Is It?

Window tint is a thin, clear, plastic film that is installed on the inside of your home’s windows. It is virtually invisible and can block up to 99% of UV Rays. Window films are applied to the glazing surface (part of a wall or window made of glass) and block against solar heat, glare, and ultra-violent exposure. They are best used in climates with long cooling seasons since they block the heat from the sun during wintertime. Films usually consist of three layers: an adhesive layer that sits against the glass, a polyester film layer, and a scratch-resistant coating. They can be applied as a do-it-yourself method, but due to the tricky and permanent nature of window film, it is recommended that a professional like Tennessee Film Solutions does the installation for you.

There are a few different types of window tints to choose from. Solar film isn’t the only type of window film available for your home, so it’s best to make sure you are choosing the correct type.

  • Solar Film/Low-E Film/Home-Tinting—block heat by keeping out the sun’s rays. They can be used to block up to 99% of damaging ultraviolent radiation and allow your home to stay cool and comfortable in the summer.
  • Decorative/Obscure Film—is a thin film used to change the aesthetic of how a window looks. The most common ones have frosting or etching effects that can be easily added without the cost of replacing or modifying the existing glass. They are hard to see through and increase privacy.
  • Safety/Security Film—is another way to contribute to the well-being of your home. The impact-resistant glass contains an interlayer that helps hold the glass together if it is shattered. This prevents flying debris. Tempered insulating glass options are toughened or strong, similar to automobile windshields, and prevent injuries.
