If you live in an older or poorly insulated house, you may have experienced chilly cold spots around windows as winter temperatures drop. While a cool breeze in your living room might be welcome in the heat of the summer, it’s not desirable when it’s below freezing outside. Staying warm by the fireplace or snuggling under a cozy blanket might provide some temporary relief. Still, it’s not going to do much to help your skyrocketing utility bills or to keep your entire home warm. If you’re looking for an effective way to keep your house warm this winter, insulating window film might be the perfect solution for you.
How Window Film Helps Retain Heat
3M™ Thinsulate™ Window Film works in several ways to help homes retain heat and keep your home warm when you need it most.
Improves Insulating Properties of Glass
Single-pane windows don’t provide much insulation, leaving you with a drafty and chilly home. 3M Thinsulate Window Film upgrades your windows and improves their insulation, effectively turning a single-pane window into a double pane. And if you already have double-pane windows, the film will give them the insulating properties of a triple-pane window.
Did you know that 30% of all energy used to heat and cool homes goes right out the window? By improving the insulation of your glass, you’ll be able to save energy and cut back on utility bills. Furthermore, applying window film to existing windows is a much more affordable option than replacing windows with more energy-efficient ones.
Keeps Heat Inside Where It Belongs
Climate control window film is designed with heat-reflecting technology to help retain heat and keep your home warm in the winter. While it reflects heat internally to add warmth when temperatures drop, it also uses sun-blocking technology to reflect solar heat in the summer. So not only will you have a warm and cozy home even on the coldest nights of the year, but you’ll also be able to stay cool on the hottest days.
Get Year-Round Comfort with Window Film
Window film won’t just work to keep your home warm in the winter. It can also provide year-round comfort in all four seasons. Along with ensuring occupants are nice and cozy, it provides protection against UV rays, reduces energy usage, and can help you save money on your heating and cooling bills.
