How Heat Control Window Film Keeps You Comfy on Hot and Smoggy Days


From vacations to pool or beach days, summertime can bring boatloads of fun, but it can also bring stifling heat and, at times, decreased air quality. Recent air patterns brought smoke from wildfires in Canada down into parts of North Carolina, making the air quality for local residents poor. And it’s not just smoke, but summertime pollen and other pollutants can get in the way of you enjoying the outdoors. Good thing heat control window film can provide a way to stay indoors on poor air quality days while still enjoying natural light and outdoor views. 

Understanding Heat Control Window Film

Heat control window film is a thin, adhesive layer applied to the interior surface of windows. It is designed to reject heat so you can enjoy a cooler and more comfortable indoor environment. The film is composed of multiple layers, each with its own purpose. The top layer provides protection against harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays, while the middle layers work together to reflect and absorb solar heat so it doesn’t enter your home or office. The bottom layer ensures a secure bond between the film and the glass surface. 

Protection from Outdoor Heat

By reflecting a portion of the sun’s energy away from your windows, heat control window film helps to reduce the heat transfer into your living or working space. As a result, you can experience a noticeable decrease in indoor temperatures, as well as reduce the load on your HVAC system, providing energy savings for your home or office. 3M Sun Control films from Mr. Tint offer up to 97% heat rejection. They also have a superior warranty so you can rest assured that when you install heat control window film, you can enjoy it for years to come.

Finding Solace Indoors with Window Film

Window film can let you breathe easy indoors while continuing to enjoy outdoor views and natural light. When smoke or other pollutants blow into your area, you should limit your time outdoors. To check local air quality, consult AirNow, which will give you a rating of how the outdoor air quality is currently.  If you have allergies to specific summer pollen, you might want to consider reducing your time outside as well. Instead of spending time outside on these days, opt for indoor activities where you can still benefit from natural light. Heat control window film allows you to forego traditional blinds or curtains, as well as indoor lighting, when the sun is at its strongest.
