Solar window film is a wonderful solution for the home or office. It provides numerous benefits at a relatively low cost. Like any investment it requires some research and consideration. Here are some pros and cons to assist you in making your decision.
Window film is easy to install and maintain. If you decide to follow through with solar window film it can be installed right away. We can typically get you on the schedule within a week and have your film installed that day. Since solar window film is a retro fit application meaning it’s after market and cut to fit your windows, it doesn’t take weeks to get the product for you. We cut it to fit perfectly to your windows and install professionally using an activating solution to help it adhere properly to your glass. The film takes about 24 hours to cure and then you’re all set. The best part is there really isn’t much for you to do after the installation. To clean the film you can simply use a damp cloth. It’s honestly that easy. We do all the work for you.
Another pro of solar window film is that the benefits are instant. After your film is installed you will automatically begin reaping the benefits of solar window film including a cooler environment and cost savings on energy. Solar window film is developed with a special technology to block out up to 80% of solar energy from entering through the windows in your home or office. That reduces about 3/4 of the heat coming in both establishing and maintaining a comfortable environment inside. The even temperatures will lower the amount of time and effort your AC will operate saving you money on your electric bills each month. Customers say they see a 5% up to 50% savings every month depending on which product they choose and the time of year.
Additional pros include that solar film eliminates nearly all of the harmful UV rays preventing fading, discoloration, and other damage to your belongings. Your furniture and decor will have a longer lifespan saving you money on replacement costs and protecting the environment through reducing waste. UV rays are also harmful to people and pets. Blocking these rays will help keep everyone safe inside.
Solar window films also add a lot of value for a low cost and they have a long lifespan. You really get that bang for your buck. Most solar films last between 10 and 20 years. That’s a lot time! The best part is when you use a professional like AZ Solar Control you typically receive a warranty that spans the lifetime of the film protecting from things like peeling, discoloration and damage on the product. So not only is your product designed to last, if is warrantied we will fix it for you if it doesn’t. Can’t beat that value.
For cons, there’s really not much negative to having solar window films. Some objections we hear are that solar film will make the room dark. Actually, the films come in so many choices to choose from you can pick the exact product to meet your needs. If you do want a dark room we can make that happen. However if you don’t, most products are transparent and do not impact light from entering the space. So light is not an issue.
Another objection we hear is that solar films peel, blister and fall apart. As addressed earlier our films are designed well to last a decade so they don’t damage easily. Plus if you buy a product with a warranty in place you have that protection as well.
Finally, an objection we hear as a “con” is that solar films are unattractive, distracting and take away from your space. Again solar films come with countless options. You can choose a clear film that is virtually undetectable or you can choose a patterned film to match your decor. We can help you find exactly what you’re looking for. You don’t have to settle for some ugly old mirrored film you found at the home improvement store.
