Here we are in the summer months once more. Temperatures are climbing, and so are our energy bills. The cost of living is skyrocketing, so we are looking at solar film and how it can impact your energy bills.

Most homeowners are trying to tighten their belts at the moment, but people are also preparing for the long haul. With most of the developed world experiencing increased costs, particularly for energy bills, many are making changes now in the hope of seeing their bills climb slower… but is window film effective at reducing energy consumption?

What type of window film cuts energy expenditure?

There are many types of window film, all with different purposes. You can use window film for window designs, creating privacy, reducing glare and dramatically cutting the effects of UV, such as fading of soft furnishings.

Solar window film is the type of window film that is often considered the energy-saving film. Results can vary dramatically depending on other factors in and around your home, but most homeowners will see some benefit.

Does window film work for energy bill reduction?

Solar film cuts the effects of the sun from your home, reducing UV damage to your belongings and your skin AND minimizing heat build-up. In recent years, our weather has become more extreme, and, as a result, many Canadians are turning to air conditioning to maintain a more moderate temperature in their home.

Air conditioning has never been a cheap solution, but now, with growing energy costs, it is a cost many are unable to bear. Applying solar film to your windows will help you avoid soaring temperatures in your home, reducing the need for air conditioning. It’s a win-win for your wallet and the environment.

How much does window film reduce heat?

Unfortunately, the degree of temperature moderation can’t be guaranteed with any window film, but in our experience, home and business owners have detected a noticeable difference. Factors such as the build of your home, its location and more can affect whether you see a slight or dramatic difference. We can assure you that it works. We only use the best window films and knowledgeable, certified installers.

Is now the right time to buy window film?

To quote a famous proverb, “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” The same can be said for solar window film. You will notice a dramatic reduction in the fading of your furnishings and belongings, which, over time, will reduce the rate you replace them at. You won’t notice the decrease in UV damage to your skin, but your skin will! And you will experience a degree of temperature moderation, just in time for the summer. Both you and your energy bill will feel just that bit more comfortable.

Add up these benefits and there has never been a better time to buy solar window film. It’s environmentally friendly, waste and energy-reducing, and will protect your skin as you work or enjoy the summer at home.
