Trying to educate yourself on window films? Look no further. Window films present a plethora of benefits that homeowners tend to be unaware of. From increasing home energy efficiency, to fortifying your windows against external threats, to adding that final decorative touch to your house, window films are practical, multi-purpose and certainly less costly and time-consuming than going the route of replacement windows.
An informative booklet from the International Window Film Association (IWFA) outlines some of the more notable advantages that window films offer:
- Transparency: Window films, when not used for aesthetic purposes, are out of sight and therefore out of mind. If you don't want to see your films, you won't have to. They'll do their job without bringing attention to themselves.
- Guard furnishings and yourself: Window films can reject up to 99.9 percent of incoming UV rays, which can harm and prematurely age both your furniture and you.
- Greater security: Certain films are built to make it much more difficult for glass to shatter into multiple pieces, which both protects you and your family from window-related accidents and acts as a deterrent to criminals.
- Reduced energy costs: Window films can also reduce energy costs, with coatings like solar window films reducing cooling costs and low-e coatings slashing heating expenses. This in turn is also better for the environment, and is a less invasive solution than getting replacement windows to do the same things.
