Glare Control Window Film
This type of window film is spectrally selective. Meaning it filters out certain rays to accomplish its goal of curbing glare. You can expect to pay anywhere from $9- $18 for this type of film. However, it is usually true that the higher the price, the better the optics of the film. We have found that films around the $15 range are about as lovely as you can get with nearly full clarity and block heat transfer as well.
Energy Efficient Window Film
High utility bills are almost always a product of your windows. The solution to this is what is called a Low-E window film. These films stop heat from transferring through the glass in the summer and keep heated air in during winter. The most effective films run in the $20-$24 range and almost always pay for themselves with energy savings within three years.
These types of beautiful films are all the rage now in home decor. Whether for adding a beautiful bright pattern to an otherwise dull room or to block clutter behind glass cabinet doors–decorative films are in! They come in an almost endless variety of colors, designs, and textures and can even mimic the look of textured glass exactly. These films usually run about from $6-12/sq ft. For home use, you should be able to find a really good decorative film for under $10 p/SF. You also can find DIY window films for under $5 p/SF but may find them difficult to apply straight and without bubbles. And these types of cheaper films won’t last as long as professional films.
