Leaving less of a carbon footprint is an ethical concern for many proactive people and is becoming easier to act on as technology evolves and becomes more cost-effective. We all know home upgrades such as insulation can reap both financial and environmental benefits, but there are also sizeable environmental benefits to window film.

If you are a homeowner, window film is an easy and quick way to reduce your carbon footprint by reducing the heat that enters your home. Of course, by the same measure, you will be dramatically reducing your air conditioning energy consumption, providing a tangible benefit for your wallet as well as the environment.

Temperature Moderation

Window film is becoming increasingly essential in our part of the world. With seasonal temperatures fluctuating from one extreme to the other, it is hard to keep your home comfortable for you and your family.

In recent years, our Summers have been unusually hot, with many running air conditioning more than they would like. Window film reduces the heat entering your home, minimizing how hard and how long you will need to run your air conditioning units. By reducing your cooling needs, you will experience a more temperate house, and prolong the life of your air conditioning units. You will also experience that warm glow that comes from knowing you are helping the environment.

Less Landfill For all our strengths, Canada is not the greatest at recycling. If it is time to replace your windows, there are environmental benefits to window film being installed on your existing windows instead. We all want windows that are highly effective but replacing them leads to more wastage in the form of your existing windows and more fuels used in the production of your new windows. Film is the green alternative, allowing you to extend the use of your existing windows, and using minimal energy in its creation. For more information on making your home greener click here.
