Is window film expensive?
No, the average installation costs less than most other window treatments. In fact, your window film will return your investment quickly through reduced utility costs and increased longevity of your interior furnishings.
How Long Does Window Film Last?
Window Films are made durable to last for many years; just how long may depend upon the type of film applied, type of glass it is applied to, and the particular climate in which it is applied. Most applications last upwards of 10 years and beyond, and several applications are still performing after 15 years. All applications have a minimum warranty period of five years (except exterior applications which are 2 years), and several films carry a 10 year commercial warranty, and even a lifetime residential warranty (lifetime for as long as original purchaser owns their home).
Will window film reduce my utility bill?
The more windows there are in your home or building, the greater the benefits of installing window tinting. That is because window film does much more than simply control heat gain or loss; it also improves the safety, security, energy efficiency, and appearance of your building - all at a fraction of the cost of installing special glass. Unlike drapes and blinds, window film rejects up to 81% of the heat that would otherwise come through the window. That can translate into a savings of about one ton of air conditioning for every 9 square meters of glass exposed to sunlight. Window Tinting block out 98% - 99.9% of UV light, thus protecting you from the sun's harmful rays and significantly reducing fabric and furniture fade. They also reduce glare to improve your indoor visibility, especially with respect to computer monitors and televisions.
Do you install window film on the inside or outside of the glass?
Window Film is typically installed on the interior side of a window. As it is a finished product, is best installed after all other nearby construction is complete. If access to the interior side of the window is difficult to obtain, an exterior application can be performed.
What is the procedure to install window film?
The individual installation steps, assuming a typical interior application, are as follows: Prepare window area by moving nearby furniture and ensuring fair and reasonable access to the glass. Thoroughly clean interior side of glass pane and gaskets with a mild solution of dishwashing detergent and water to remove dirt and other residue. Wet glass with solution. Place film against glass. Squeegee to remove excess solution between glass and film. Trim film to gasket (rubber or timber glazing bead). Re-squeegee film edges to ensure film lies flat. Wipe film to ensure clean finished product. Replace furniture to original positions
How do I clean the filmed surface after installation?
Window films may be washed with common washing solutions (no ammonia-based products) thirty days after installation. Abrasive cleaning agents and bristle brushes which would scratch the film can not be used. Synthetic sponges, squeegees, or soft cloths are recommended in addition to the cleaning solution. To maintain your warranty, do not use tape or other adhesive products on the film.
