Solar window films essentially control excess heat and fading from ultraviolet light exposure caused by direct sunlight through your home or office windows. Solar window films in Barrie are retrofitted to alter existing windows in either your home or business, as opposed to having to install brand new windows. Solar film products work best in warmer climates, like our hot, dry summers in Ontario, as well in high rise buildings and older homes that still have single pane glass.
Solar window films can help you to save money, as the installation of new windows can be extremely costly. Solar films are applied to your existing windows to help control light and heat. Solar film products also help to improve indoor comfort and protect your furniture from sun damage.
What are the benefits of Solar Window Films?
Solar window films can absorb and re-radiate long-wave infrared heat, which works to retain heat in our cold, largely overcast winters, while at the same time lowering our energy costs. Some solar window films reflect heat to the outside during our hot, dry summers. Reflecting the heat from the sun’s rays reduces our costly air conditioning bills or helps to keep our homes slightly cooler that don’t have the comfort of air conditioning. Solar window films can also block up to 99 percent of harmful UV radiation from entering your home or office. New technology allows the solar films to be clear instead of tinted and can significantly block out a considerable amount of summer heat while retaining much needed heat in the winter months. In short, the benefits of solar window films are as follows:
- Light & Subtle
- Economical & Efficient
- Help Reduce Fading – Protect your furniture, flooring, heirlooms etc.
- Up to 80% Heat Rejection – The second largest contributor to fading
- Reduce Annoying Glare
- Scratch Resistant
- Factory Backed Warranty
