A Guide to Heat-reducing Window Film

A Guide to Heat-reducing Window Film

Summer is with us once again, and that can only mean one thing; it’s time to reduce the temperature, stat! Hot summer sun can cause home temperatures to climb fast. Luckily, heat-reducing window film can help you fight back.

From air conditioning to ice-cold drinks, we Atlantic Canadians have gotten used to fighting the heat in the warmer months. Solar film, sometimes referred to as heat-reducing window film, can help you regain control of the ambient thermostat in your home and keep your family relaxed this summer.

Why is solar film useful in the summertime?

Solar window film is clever stuff. It blocks up to 99% of the sun's UV rays and up to 80% of heat and glare. In a nutshell, solar window film helps moderate the temperatures in your home. A more moderate temperature can help by reducing the temperature of your room and, through this, can reduce your reliance on air conditioning or fans.

Through UV-blocking capabilities, this handy window film can also drastically reduce UV damage to your family's skin and your belongings.

Cooler still

Solar window film is the perfect option to keep things light and airy, but if you are also looking to regain some privacy, privacy window film has the same advantages as solar film but also has reflective properties. It’s ideal for a home office or a space you feel is a little exposed.

Does solar window film really work?

While solar film isn’t predominantly designed for heat reduction, window film can moderate temperatures effectively. The degree of moderation is dependent on a whole range of factors, so there are no guarantees, but with its UV-blocking properties as well, you will notice the difference over time.

How big of a commitment is this?

The beauty of solar window film (and all of our films!) is that they are easy to maintain with normal cleaners, cost much less than house renovations or replacement windows, and can be added to as little or as much of your home as needed. Window films can be applied to any glass windows, doors or similar surfaces, so if you are on a strict budget, you can opt to have film fitted in particular rooms. We know you’ll love the results, so don’t be surprised if you decide to come back for more! Our window films are fitted by our expert team with a full guarantee. You can expect your film to last 10+ years or until you replace the glass.
