Insulating Film: Stay Cozy and Save Energy!

What is insulating window film?

Insulating window film is a clever solution for making your windows more energy-efficient. This thin, durable film is made from polyester or vinyl and applied directly to your windows. Window film for winter insulation acts like extra protection. It keeps the heat inside during cold days and blocks it out during summer.

The effect of using insulating window tint film can vary based on factors like film quality, window type, and climate. However, studies show that it can significantly reduce heat gain and loss through windows and save up to 30% of energy. Additionally, plastic insulating film reduces glare and UV radiation, improves comfort, and protects occupants’ health and the interior of the home.

The benefits of window film for insulation.

Insulating window film is an affordable investment that brings a multitude of benefits for homeowners:

Comfort. You will immediately forget about annoying cold drafts with thermal window film for winter. And it works not only in winter! Insulating film creates a consistent and comfortable year-round temperature and transforms your home into a cozy space. Furthermore, some films minimize sun glare and create a more comfortable atmosphere for working or just watching TV.

Energy savings. The ability to control indoor temperature makes you less dependent on heating and cooling systems. In other words, exterior window film insulation will pay off in the long run, as your energy bills will reduce, and you will pay less.

Sun protection. Insulating film functions as an invisible barrier—it effectively blocks harmful UV rays that can fade furniture, artwork, and interior elements. With the film on your windows, your belongings are well-protected.

Security shield. You can opt for films with an extra layer of security to make your windows more shatter-resistant. This will help you win some time in case of a break-in.

Additional advantages. You can install exterior window film insulation with a subtle tint and add a modern touch to your windows. Some films may even help you reduce noise levels and create a quieter living space.

What is the best window film for insulation?

There is no definite response to this question as homeowners’ needs and requirements may differ. However, there are some common considerations when choosing insulating film.

Climate

If you live in a hot and sunny climate, you should prioritize films with strong heat rejection properties. You may opt for reflective films that will keep your home cool on the hottest days.

If winters are cold in your area, focus on film for windows for winter that retain heat inside. Low-emissivity (Low-E) films are the best choice. They reflect heat back into your living space and reduce energy consumption for heating.

Window size and location

Larger windows require more robust protection to ensure optimal insulation. Consider thicker films or those with higher solar heat gain coefficients for better heat rejection.

South-facing windows receive more heat. Choose films with a high Visible Light Transmission (VLT) rating to maintain natural light and minimize heat rejection.

Visible Light Transmission (VLT)

VLT indicates the amount of visible light that passes through the film. It is critical to find the right combination between natural light and an insulation level. Look for a film that balances good insulation with high VLT.

UV Protection

Strong UV protection is an additional benefit of insulating films. The level of UV protection needed depends on your location and the potential sun exposure of your windows.

Visual appeal

Usually, a traditional insulating film is clear, but you may find films with a slight tint or reflective surface. Consider the overall aesthetic you want for your home. Do you prefer a virtually invisible film or one with a subtle tint for a more modern look?

The advantages of professional installation.

There are a lot of DIY kits available on the market. However, it is very difficult to achieve a high-quality installation outcome. Poor application will automatically reduce the insulation power. So, if you do not have proper skills and experience, better trust this job to experts. Tinting Chicago is a team of professional installers that have hundreds of successfully completed orders.
