Are you considering replacing your windows? Have you considered the more budget-friendly option of adding low-emissivity (low-e) window films? Low-e window films rival or match the performance and appearance of new glass, at a fraction of the price of new windows. They also offer a fast ROI of between 2-5 years, making them a smart investment. Here are a few other benefits of low-e window films in addition to their financial benefits:
Maintain Aesthetics and Protect Against UV Rays
Applied to the insides of your windows, this special coating remains virtually invisible, maintaining a neutral appearance that will not dramatically change the look of your windows—inside or out. They will work seamlessly with your current decor and architecture and require no changes during future design or decorating upgrades. Their application will not block views, making them a perfect solution for every home, including historic homes and homes in communities with strict HOA guidelines. Low-E film blocks up to 99 percent of harmful UV rays, protecting your furniture, floors, carpeting, upholstery, wallpaper, and artwork from potential fading or discoloration, while also providing a level of skin and eye protection.
Improved Insulation and Energy Efficiency
Residential buildings experience energy losses of almost 30% and commercial buildings experience up to 40% heating and cooling losses due to their abundance of windows. Low-e films allow natural light in while minimizing the amount of heat allowed through the windows, reducing heat loss in the winter and non-solar heat gain in the summer. Maintaining balanced temperatures throughout the year means a reduced strain on heating and cooling systems, leading to lower utility bills.
“Green” and Maintenance-Free
The use of window films can support green building trends such as natural daylighting and carbon reduction programs. They also reduce the amount of discarded materials in landfills when applied to windows as an upgrade rather than having the windows fully replaced. After installation, low-e window films are virtually maintenance-free. They will not scratch off due to their interior application and they require no special cleaning.
