How Window Film Can Help You 

what are the benefits of window film

Window film is probably not a common topic most people know a lot about, but it can be a solution to so many different problems. Window film is used for a variety of different reasons including reducing heat, reducing glare, increasing privacy and adding a decorative design. Solar Art has come up with ten reasons you might consider using window film:

1. You want to reduce heat & lower the electricity bill

Air conditioning is not cheap, but might feel like a necessity depending on where you are located and how hot it gets. All window film blocks 99% of UVA and UVB rays and can reduce up to 75% of the heat entering your home or commercial building. This can help keep a room cooler without using the air conditioner, ultimately resulting in a lower electricity bill. If you are worried about the aesthetics changing, not to worry, there are solar films that contain no metal or dye, which means the look of your space won't change and you get the same UV protection!

2. You need to temporarily hide an area that is under construction

Construction zones are often ugly and not appealing to look at. If you are looking for an inexpensive way to temporarily hide an area that is under construction, window film is an easy and affordable solution. You can apply a frosted window film or a blackout window film that will completely block outsiders from being able to see in. Once the construction is over, you can call up a professional company like Solar Art to come and easily remove it. 

3. Your walls are bare and you are looking for something that could spruce them up

When it comes to custom design, there are many routes you can go to personalize a space. At Solar Art we can produce custom graphics, wall murals as well as different decorative window films that can provide a face life to any room. Whether you are looking for a wall mural of your favorite travel destination for your office, or you are looking for a decorative pattern for your conference room, window film can help add your own personal touch. 

4. You want to reduce glare on computer screens

Afternoon sun can present as a problem for many people. It gets so strong and the glare is so bad, it can prevent employees from seeing computer screens. This is not only uncomfortable, it can also decrease productivity. If you are struggling with glare from the sun in your home or office, window film can block up to 94% of glare from entering your space! 

5. You are looking for a way to prevent your glass from being tagged

Replacing glass is expensive. If your windows are repeatedly getting tagged or scratched and you are tired of replacing the glass, anti graffiti film is a great option. Anti graffiti film is a protective layer of window film that is installed directly onto glass or Stainless Steel surfaces. If your space does get vandalized, the anti graffiti film will endure the damage, not your glass or Stainless Steel surface. Replacing anti graffiti film is a cost efficient way to get rid of the etching without having to replace the surface itself. If your space does get vandalized all you have to do is call up a professional company like Solar Art to remove and replace the damaged anti graffiti film. 

6. You want to get rid of blinds and enjoy your view with comfort

Blinds can be unattractive, a hassle to maintain, can block your view and can make a room very dark. There are certain solar films that contain no metal or dyes and won't change the aesthetics of your home whatsoever. They are still heat blocking window films that will provide the same amount of heat and UV protection as other darker window films. This will give you the ability to appreciate your view in comfort! 

7. Your want to increase privacy from neighbors 

Concerned about nosy neighbors? When it comes to privacy, window film can be used to help prevent onlookers from peering into your office or home. We receive many inquiries for privacy in bathrooms and bottom level rooms to prevent neighbors from seeing in. If you are looking to increase privacy, you can have a frosted window film or a reflective window film installed. Both are great options that will significantly increase privacy and will look great in both residential and commercial settings. 

8. You installed artificial turf and the sun is burning it

Installing turf is becoming more and more popular as it helps save on water usage. While artificial turf is great and can provide several benefits, there have been situations where heat reflects off windows and actually makes the artificial turf burn. We carry a few different window films that can help prevent this from happening. We have installed it at several homes as well as apartment complexes and buildings and have seen great results! 

9. You want to add to your security system and increase safety

Safety is a top priority in both homes and offices. Homeowners and business owners often have some sort of security system installed to help keep their space safe and keep intruders out. Window security film is an affordable and simple way to add to your already existing security system to help give you peace of mind 24/7. Security window film helps strengthen glass by 2-3 times and will prolong forced entry time, allowing more time for help to arrive!

10. People keep running into your glass

Believe it or not, running into glass is very common. Especially today where modern offices are comprised of floor length glass walls. If people aren't paying attention or are looking down at their phones, it is really easy to run right into the glass. If you want to increase safety but don't want to completely change the look of your office, you can install a subtle distraction like this customer did. They had the name of the conference room and two simple lines installed. This kept a clean and modern look, while also creating a distraction. You can also have decorative window film installed to create a distraction. Often times business owners will have dots or squares installed to grab peoples attention.
