3 Questions to Ask Before Considering Window Film For Home or Business

Having window film professionally installed in your home or business offers numerous benefits including energy savings, safety and security protection, and even health benefits. With all of the different types of films available, we recognize buying window film isn’t typically an impulsive purchase. And it shouldn’t be.

Before you consider having window film installed in your home or business, you should ask a professional installer the following five questions:

1. How long does window film last?

While it depends on several factors including: film type, glass type, climate, and geographical location of the building, most residential applications are covered by a lifetime warranty as long as you own your home. Most commercial installations come with either a 10 or 15 year warranty. We would be glad to show and discuss the options with you.

2. Which type of window film is right for my home or office?

There are many types of solar control and safety and security window films with a wide variety of shades, colors, and performance characteristics. Plus, quality window films are designed for use on specific types of window glass. Solar Trends has 18 years of experience and will help you select the best film for your home or commercial property. We can show you swatches of each film, and talk to you about the performance benefits that best meet your expectations.

3. What type of energy savings can I expect?

It’s proven that professional installation of solar control films reduce the amount of solar heat that enters your home or commercial property. And while that can result in lowering heating and cooling costs, determining the exact amount of savings can be difficult. However, typical payback in energy savings is 2-5 years, sometimes less.

It’s important to get all of your questions answered so you can consider all of your options before making a final decision.
