Energy efficient window films will take a sizeable chunk out of your monthly energy bills and reduce your overall environmental footprint.
Protect Your Furnishings
Visible light lies between ultraviolet light, which damages furniture, leather, fabrics, artwork, and wood flooring, and infrared light, which transmits heat. Treated windows block ultraviolet and infrared light, while allowing visible light to pass through. This is how window films keep your home protected and cool without blocking any natural light.
Enhanced Aesthetics and Privacy
Modern window films are an inexpensive way to transform normal glass into frosted or etched windows. These films can be used to create privacy and add some style to your home.
Window Film Can't Fix Anything
If your windows are in a state of disrepair, leaking, or poorly insulated, no film on the market will fix that. At a certain point, windows need to be replaced. However, if your windows are in good shape and simply need a performance boost, window film is the most cost and time efficient way to do it.
Get a Warranty
Reputable film installation companies will offer a warranty for their work – make sure you read and understand that warranty. The company shouldn’t hesitate to explain anything you don’t understand. Warranties will protect you against a bad installation. Bad installations will lead to film that peels, bubbles, or lifts. At Sun Shade you get the best warranty in the business, with installation quality that is second to none.
