Choosing the Right Solar Window Films for Your Home

April 12th, 2024

Installing solar window films in your home offers a variety of benefits, such as reducing and blocking harmful UV rays that can cause your furniture, artwork, and cabinetry to quickly fade. It can also help create a more comfortable and environmentally friendly living space.

However, the wide range of solar window films available can make it difficult to know which will offer the most benefits and best suit your home. Use this guide to help make the right choice.

How Solar Film Works

Solar window film is a transparent material that’s applied to your windows. It blocks up to 99% of the sun’s UV rays while ensuring natural light can still brighten up your space. By absorbing and reflecting solar radiation, the film helps reduce the amount of heat that enters through your windows, enabling you to more effectively manage your home’s temperature.

Solar window films can also protect your furniture and other interior surfaces from fading by minimizing their exposure to UV rays. This preservation helps maintain the appearance of your home and the longevity of its furnishings and decor.

What to Consider When Choosing Solar Window Films

Choosing solar window films for your home can be daunting due to the variety of options available. It’s important to consider several factors, including the manufacturer and installation company, available colour options, desired aesthetic, and performance features.

Cost and warranty are also important considerations. Start by asking yourself what exactly you want your solar film to do—knowing your goals will help our team provide you with the right recommendations and streamline your decision-making process. When you consult with our team, we’ll discuss your priorities with you to help you make the right selection.

While all solar window films offer benefits, they’re not all created equally. While some are designed to enhance security and privacy, others are made with the intention of providing protection against the sun. Others may offer an array of benefits all at once. Before you purchase residential window film, it’s important to make sure your selection suits your needs and personal preferences.
