Taking steps to prepare your property for winter is important not only for your comfort, but also your wallet. A well-insulated building will retain heat longer and use up less energy. On the other hand, if a building lacks insulation, it’s easy for the hot air to seep out and the cold air to creep in. This means that heating equipment has to work harder, thus costing you more.
That’s why you should invest in 3M Thinsulate Window Film for your Colorado Springs property this year. 3M Thinsulate Film will give your home or building the insulating power it needs to conserve energy and remain comfortable throughout the cold weather season.
What Is 3M Thinsulate Window Film?
3M Thinsulate Window Film is a building product designed to improve the insulating ability of glass surfaces. Most commonly, it’s installed on doors and windows, though it can also be used for skylights, atriums, and glass walls. Unlike most window films, Thinsulate is a four-season window film, meaning that it works year round instead of just the summer.
In Colorado Springs, 3M Thinsulate Window Film can be obtained and installed by any local window tinting contractor. Get more details about Thinsulate here: 3M_Thinsulate_Window_Film_Colorado_Springs
How Does Low-E Window Film Work?
Low-e window film alters the emissivity of glass. “Emissivity” is a word used to describe the amount of heat that radiates from a surface. Low-e window film reduces a window’s ability to radiate heat indoors during the summer. During the winter, it prevents heat from radiating outdoors, keeping the room warmer.
How Much Money Does Window Film Actually Save?
It all depends. What type of window film you use, how big your property is, and where you install it all play a role in determining window film’s effectiveness. However, most studies find that the property owner saves somewhere around 10-30% on energy costs.
