Window Film Insulation: Does It Work?

Posted on
Residential Window Tinting

Does window film insulation work? Absolutely. But exactly how does window film insulation work? And what can film insulation do for the homeowner?

First off, asking whether film insulation works is a good sign of a healthy and skeptical mind. Each of us is faced with hundreds if not thousands of advertisements and slogans each day. All are designed to grab our attention and to keep it locked on a particular product or service.

But how do we separate fact from fiction? Truth from lies? Something that’s bonafide from something that’s bogus? It starts with skepticism.

But you can put that skepticism aside when it comes to asking whether or not film insulation works.

It does.

And there’s so much you can do with it!

Window Film Insulation Works

Window film reduces the amount of visible and ultraviolet light that penetrates windows. This also helps reduce the amount of heat energy that enters the home. This reduction in heat and light provides protection for carpets, furniture, wood floors, electronics, and drapes.

It can also help lower energy bills. In fact, the energy efficiency of tinted windows goes a long way. It can help homeowners and property owners with tremendous energy savings.

How does it work?

Our window films are coated with transparent dyes and metals. These coatings convert the incoming solar radiation into infrared radiation and reflected it back. Outward.

(Quick note: Ceramic window films are nonmetallic. They also don’t contain any dyes.)

We’ve written about this elsewhere in the Pacific Window Tinting blog. Sunlight that attempts to penetrate tinted windows undergoes a few transformations.

  • Radiation prevention, which helps keep living and workspaces warm in the winter and cooler in the summer.
  • Reflection, whereby the light is directed outward (away from the window).
  • Absorption. The window film absorbs sunlight, preventing the light and heat from getting inside.
  • Transmittance, which is the allowance of certain levels of light. We’ll help you determine the best transmittance for you and your space.
