Environmental Benefits

The environmental benefits of window film

The environmental benefits of window films are not hard to fathom, since they reduce the energy use of both homes and commercial buildings, while keeping these spaces cool. If you're looking to lower your energy consumption, achieve utility savings and reduce your environmental impact, window films offer the right solution.

"Windows may appear passive, but in reality they are always performing. They affect the flow of heat in and out of your home, as well as the amount of natural light, and this influences how much electricity you need to use to keep your home comfortable," the National Fenestration Rating Council explains.

During the summer in particular, window films can help homeowners and property managers keep their spaces cool and their energy bills low. Windows with a lower Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) are better able to keep rooms cool. Window films lower the SHGC of the rooms in which they're installed.

Yet, the benefits of window films aren't limited to energy efficiency. Window films can also reject up to 99 percent of the sun's harmful UV light, and additionally reduce fading and deterioration of furnishings. 

In addition, solar control window can offer a viable year-round solution. During the summer, they help keep your property at a cool and comfortable temperature, allowing you to save on utility bills, and during the winter, some varieties can trap room heat to improve comfort.
