All our heat blocking window films can be applied to both residential and commercial glass surfaces.
Whether you’re a homeowner or a commercial client with a multi-building office campus, we are committed to helping you choose the best heat reducing window film to save you money and cool down your indoor spaces.
How Does Window Film for Heat Blocking Work?
Heat reflective window film is applied directly to the inside surfaces of your existing outdoor-facing glass to block heat and reflect UV rays outside for better indoor comfort. Heat blocking window film can be completely clear, so you don’t have to sacrifice visibility or natural light to get the benefits. It also comes in a range of tints and colors in case you want to add privacy or upgrade the aesthetics of your glass.
All our heat reducing window films work by reflecting solar rays outwards and dispersing the cool inside air back inwards. This means you won’t have to run the AC on full speed for the entire day to keep the interior temperature of your home or commercial facility bearable. Our heat blocking window films are proven to drastically cut down on your energy costs, reduce hot spots inside your property, and block out 99.9% of the sun’s rays that cause fading on things like carpet and upholstery.
Even on the hottest summer days, window film for heat reduction will significantly reduce your reliance on cooling equipment like air conditioners and fans. Our window films block out up to 78% of the sun’s heat coming in through your windows. You’ll no longer need to close blinds and drapes, blocking out natural light and views, to keep the inside temperature comfortable. Heat reflective window films will even keep your blinds and drapes looking newer for longer by preventing fading.
Reduce Glare with Heat Reflective Window Film
In addition to increasing your indoor comfort and reducing your utility bills, our heat-reflecting window films also work to block out the sun’s glare. This makes it an ideal treatment for any room where you want to be able to look at a computer screen, television, or other electronic devices without having to squint.
For example, our heat reducing window films are favored by office buildings where employees need to be able to see their computer monitors all day to comfortably carry out tasks.
Upgrade the Appearance of Your Existing Glass
Heat reflective window film can also be used to modernize old glass and give it a more contemporary look.
For instance, older office buildings can apply something like a mirrored or colored heat blocking window film to change the exterior appearance of the building entirely. This is a much quicker, more efficient, and budget-friendly way to bring an older building into the current decade than removing and replacing the existing glass.
Add Privacy with Heat Reflective Window Film
If you opt for a tinted or colored heat blocking window film as opposed to a clear film, it can also add extra privacy to your exterior facing glass. Not only will it keep employees inside comfortable and prevent glare from interfering with their work, but it keeps prying eyes away as well.
Certain heat reflective window films create a two-way mirror effect, so when it’s brighter outside than inside, you can see clearly out of the glass while it appears as a mirror to anyone on the other side.
How Much Does Heat Reducing Window Film Cost?
The cost per square foot of heat reflective window film is influenced by performance factors and the exact composition of the film. It generally runs in the range of $8-$12 per square foot, but higher performance window films like Low-E window film can be more expensive. The end price also depends on the scope of the job and the difficulty of installation.
Heat blocking window film is usually an investment that pays for itself quite quickly by greatly reducing the expense of cooling down your property. Major studies conducted by the US Department of Energy and CONSOL Energy concluded that heat reducing window film typically provides a return on investment in an average of three years. However, we have had commercial clients who reported energy savings of up to $300,000 in 9 months.
Heat reflective window film is also highly durable and lasts a minimum of 15 years, although we’ve seen it last for up to 30 in some cases. Most of our window films are expected to fall in the middle of that range, lasting around 20 years. When you consider all the energy savings over a decade or two, you can see how valuable an investment heat reducing window film truly is.
