What are your first thoughts when you hear the words “window film”? Things like: tint, car windows, dark, and reflective office buildings likely come to mind. Often words such as: energy conservation, safety, problem solver, or socially responsible are not thought of. The truth is the second criterion is far more accurate…
Windows are one of the largest energy sink holes in contemporary times. With that in mind, how many households or businesses have the spare change that would be required to plug that sink hole by installing efficient glass? Few, assuming they even have a desire to conserve energy. What if you could retrofit your windows to reduce the solar energy transmitted into your home by 40-70%? At the same time, this treatment would increase the insulation properties of your windows, helping with heating in the winter. That sounds all good and well you say, but you are not interested in darkening your windows. Window film has progressed to the point where a ceramic based film can be applied to nearly any window that is virtually undetectable, while still offering high performance. Remember, residential/commercial window film is not car tint.
Window film is an underutilized technology that offers an array of benefits at an affordable cost. On top of the energy conservation aspect, by using window film a building’s occupants can benefit from: reducing hot spots, minimizing the damage of U.V. rays to the people and things within (most window films block 99.9% of U.V. rays), and glare reduction.
Do you want to conserve energy? Does your office get hot during the summer? Would you rather not be exposed to damaging UV rays at home or in the office? Are your furniture and fixtures fading? We all have those concerns, and window film can help.
So why do we not use window film? It is not due to the newness of the product; film is a mature technology. It is more about awareness. This helpful technology is damaged by an inaccurate “tint” stigma, and lost to ineffective education of the target market by film providers. SunGlo Window Films is a Colorado based film company striving to educate on how window film can be used TODAY as a social responsibility tool.

This article describes how the DOE is spending nearly $30 million on developing 26 new weatherization training programs. Weatherization is a simple and often inexpensive process that real estate owners seldom give attention to (including myself). I am all for training people to become experts on how to prevent energy usage through leakage.
I hope that as we delve into the world of retro-fitting homes and buildings for energy efficiency, that window film is recognized as a viable tool. Windows are a significant cost of energy in buildings, and window film is a cost effective way to address that. Visit SunGlo Energy Conservation for more information.
Here are some good tips for inexpensive, Do-It-Yourself ways to decrease your energy bill and reduce your carbon footprint. It is obvious in this article that windows should be a focus when we are analyzing home energy use. The author of this article does not suggest window film as an option, though it would fit better than the window recommendations that were made.
First he suggests that you put up a layer of plastic in the winter as insulation. Window film provides you with insulation while adding other benefits such as; UV protection and heat rejection in the summer. Additionally, under Other Affordable Options, they recommend that you replace your windows with current technology windows to conserve energy. I am not sure that replacing windows would qualify as affordable. This is another place that window film could fit. Window film upgrades the quality and efficiency of your windows without the cost of replacing them.
Despite my criticism of the recommendations regarding windows; there are good, inexpensive suggestions in this article. Let’s take some time, save some energy, and take a chunk out of our energy bill.
