Facts & Misconceptions about Window Films – What to Know

Window films are usually installed in the interior or exterior glass windows of homes or offices for various reasons. They are added as additional glass layers for aesthetic purpose, security, privacy, solar glare reduction, energy efficiency, and savings.

For the uninitiated, a window film is a thin laminate film that is made of a polyester product. Window films are then applied to the surface of a glass window in a home, commercial building, and even car. There is a wide range of window films available in the market with some being clear, some with multiple layers, and others tinted with pigments, metals or dyes.

In this article, we’ll cover some common misconceptions and facts about the use of window films. Keep on reading to find out more.

 

Misconception 1: Window films do not last long

There are some homeowners and property managers who think that window films only last for a few years. They assume that films ought to be updated or replaced regularly. What many fail to realize is the fact that window films can actually last for a very long time.

Window film providers usually offer a warranty of up to 15 years, meaning that they can last longer depending on a few factors, such as the film, glass type, installation, and location. Know that warranties will also cover various issues, such as peeling, bubbling, cracking, and adhesive failure, among others.

 

Misconception 2: Window films are the ultimate solution for storm protection

Some people are under the assumption that the window films are the panacea to storm. They think that window films alone can keep the glass from breaking, the window unit and frame intact and that they are great alternatives for other storm protection measures.

The truth is that your window films can only do so much. During a storm, they can hold the glass in windows together, help prevent potential physical harm, and stop high winds from entering a structure. They can serve as passive protection as long as they are installed properly. However, keep in mind that they aren’t the ultimate solution for storm protection.

 

Fact 1: Window films result in increased energy efficiency

Many homeowners and commercial property owners install window films for one good reason – energy efficiency. By installing window films, you can control the amount of sunlight that enters your room and regulate the temperature inside.

For this reason, your heating and cooling systems won’t have to overwork themselves. Instead, they will work rather efficiently, which can reduce energy use and consumption by a significant margin. In fact, window films can offer a payback of fewer than two years or up to a 70 per cent ROI.

 

Conclusion

Window films can be installed for their aesthetic or functional values. Whether you use them to enhance the look of your home or provide your office with some privacy, window films can be your best solution.

We had a large window downstairs in our kitchen that got full sun. It really got the full heat of the day. Since tinting it, it has made a huge difference to our temperature in the house. We also had an upstairs window to do. The tint is installed on the inside, the job was done super quickly and the technician was excellent. very helpful.
