How to Keep Your Home Warmer in The Winter with Residential Window Films

You may not be aware as to how much heat can escape your house in the winter through your windows. Between 30% and 50% of a home’s energy can be lost through its windows, which is typically more than any other source. Adding window treatment films to your house or apartment’s windows can reduce this by significant margins, adding insulation rates seen in double and triple pane windows, but at a fraction of the cost.




If you have ever thought that you have particularly crafty windows, it is actually more likely to be a temperature imbalanced zone, where air surrounding the inside of the window cools at a higher rate than the ambient temperature. This can be remedied with residential window tinting film, which reduces this effect and further insulates the window.




Window films help to control your home’s climate year round. Beyond just keeping it warm in the winter, when the weather turns hot in summer, window film can block up to 70% of the sun’s heat, further providing a use case for residential window films. This will allow you to keep your house cooler in summer, and reduces the load (and power draw) from air conditioning units.



The sun’s glare can have nonoptimal effects on several components of your home. Glare from the sun can hamper the viewing experiences of televisions, and can produce an uncomfortable reflective glare from mirrors. Beyond this, the UV light can be highly corrosive to carpeting, hardwood flooring, electronics in direct sunlight, and musical instruments in direct sunlight (most commonly seen with piano owners).




Window films protect furnishings, fabrics, and artwork from fading and damage. Beyond this, window tinting films also protect resident’s from harmful skin cancers caused by harmful solar UV rays.


Ultimately, there are a myriad of benefits to applying residential window tint to your residence. From property protection and preventative maintenance, to heightened efficiency and resident safety, applying residential window tint is highly recommended.
