Preparing for the winter with window film

Preparing for the winter with window film

Minnesota has unpredictable weather, to say the least, but one thing is for certain: it is going to get cold and we are going to have lots of snow. It may look nice right now, but in a matter of a few weeks, the weather is going to turn from fall leaves to inches of snow. You need to prepare for this. But what exactly is the best way to prepare your home for the winter? Well, one of the best things you can do is get window film for your windows. The last thing you are going to want is a cold draft of air coming into your home. If you have old or inefficient windows, it can end up causing the cold winter air to get into your home, which in turn will cause your heating bills to skyrocket. Thankfully,  you can get window film to help keep all that cold air out and help retain the warmth in your home.


Energy Savings


Because window film is both better for heating and cooling, it isn’t just used to keep the cold out. It is going to help lead to year-round energy savings. When you have reduced your utility bills, you are going to be able to get some extra money back in your pocket to spend on other things. Just because there is going to be an initial investment associated with the window film that you get, it has a quick return where you save what you spent. Most people often end up seeing positive returns on investments in a little under 4 years due to the cost savings.




With 3M window film, you are going to have a great amount of insulation to retain heat. Window film works by reflecting some of the solar heat back into the room. Because the heat disperses throughout the room or house, the window film helps keep cool spots to a minimum. This will help maintain a nice, consistent, comfortable, and relaxing interior temperature. Because of this, you are not going to have to worry about being chilly or cold when you are near a window. This is going to be great for months like December and January, when Minnesota is at its coldest.


Natural Light


Living in Minnesota, you know that Minnesota can have its moments of looking sad and dreary outside during the winter. This can be intensified if you have to eliminate any natural light with window treatments to help keep your house warm. With window film, you are able to improve the insulation in your house while also retaining natural light. You don’t need to sacrifice one for the other when you can easily allow a great amount of sunlight to fill the rooms in your home while also keeping you warm.
