Installing professional residential window tinting from 3M is the best way to get rid of that frustrating glare on your TV and monitors and protect your home from UV damage.
But did you know that 3M film can also keep your home cooler during the summer and warmer during winter? In this post from Sun Control of Minnesota, we’ll break down everything you need to know about the thermal benefits of 3M window film. Give us a call to schedule your residential window tinting installation in time for summer and take advantage of energy savings all season long!
Controlling Your Home’s Temperature
If your windows are poorly insulated, it can be more than just a minor inconvenience. When sitting near your windows in the winter means tolerating a cool draft that seeps through the window, you can expect the same poor performance during the summer months. And unfortunately, if there’s a heat radius around your windows, it is impacting more than just your family’s comfort. Poor window performance is also taking a toll on your monthly energy costs.
Too often, homeowners end up compromising their views and giving up natural daylight by installing blackout curtains or blinds. But you don’t have to live in a dark home to get rid of solar heat. Thankfully, 3M offers a solution that allows you to experience more comfortable temperatures without sacrificing your view.
How 3M Residential Window Tinting Works
3M residential window tinting is designed to reflect away most of the sun’s solar heat, blocking up to 99% of UV rays in the process. They also reject as much as 78% of the solar heat coming into your home while filtering visible light. And because as much as 30% of a home’s energy escapes through its windows, reducing the transfer of heat can also noticeably impact your energy costs over time.
These are just a few added benefits of 3M residential window tinting:
● Protects skin against UV damage
● Prevents UV fading and bleaching to furnishings and floors
● Reduces glare
● Can be combined with security film
