Window Films - Fast Payback and Easy Upgrade

by Lina K

We discussed several easy measures to improve the performance of existing windows in the Window Improvements page but there is also a product called window film that is professionally applied to existing windows in homes and buildings that cuts infrared radiation by 99%. This eliminates fading from the sun and tempers indoor temperatures better. This product can significantly reduce your cooling load in the summer, and improve the R value of double-paned windows to Low E, triple-paned windows.

Definitely a product to consider seriously if you are remodeling. Solar Matrix and Solar Gard are two manufacturers of solar films. The new technology contains specs of different metals to reflect light, but still transmits light really well.
