Selecting the Right Window Film for Your Needs
Solar Window Films for Comfort, Protection & Energy Efficiency
In Phoenix, AZ, the primary reason most homeowners choose to install window film is to mitigate the effects of the sun’s rays entering the home. Typical requirements for films installed in this part of the country include glare reduction, heat blocking, UV-ray protection, and energy bill savings. Solar window films provide these benefits.
According to the U.S. Dept. of Energy, silver, mirror-like reflective films are more effective for these purposes than are their more transparent, colored cousins. Consequently, the DOE advises that east- and west-facing windows will derive the most significant benefit from installing reflective films. Other films are less reflective and beneficial on every window.
Because reflective window tints can impact visibility at certain times, if preserving the view from your windows is essential to you, you’ll likely be better off opting for a non-reflective film. We offer premium films that keep the natural view of the glass while still offering substantial heat rejection. It’s a matter of balancing the relative importance of one need against the other. That said, today’s non-reflective window films also offer solid heat-rejection properties while retaining visibility day and night. If you aren’t sure which type you need, please feel free to ask!
Window Tints Offer Versatile Benefits Throughout Your Home
While heat, glare, and damage to furnishings by the sun’s UV rays may be the most important factors to consider when selecting a window film for your Phoenix home, that isn’t to say that you can’t choose other types of window films for the parts of your home that don’t experience such great sun intensity in summer.
Suppose you’d like to provide greater privacy and/or add a touch of class to the décor in your north- or south-facing rooms. Our decorative window films offer a virtually endless variety of designs that will let your interior decorating instincts go wild, for example. So, if a south-facing bedroom needs a makeover, you can add beauty to the room while enhancing the occupant’s privacy at the same time.
Similarly, if you’d like a touch of privacy for a north-facing recreation or family room but don’t need the added decorative elements (i.e., frost etching, etc.), one of our quality window films can meet your goals. Get in touch if you’d like more details about these options.
