National Window Film Day

Save Energy and Money Faster With Window Film

National Window Film Day is on April 30th, a day of public education focusing on how homeowners and businesses can save on cooling and heating costs, protect their skin and home decor from the sun’s damaging UV rays and to promote window safety.

Instead of having to replace structurally sound windows, a simple, yet cost-effective solution is to apply a thin layer of window film. Window film can be visibly clear or nearly impossible to see through from the outside.

The assessed value of adding 20 new energy efficient windows in California, for example, may range from $10,220 to $18,580 based on a 2019 building assessors manual listing $511 to $929 for each window. Annual energy savings for the replacement of existing windows in a home is from $27 to $111 for dual-pane windows and $126 to $465 for single-pane windows, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. This means it may take decades to financially justify window replacements based on energy savings alone.

Fortunately, there’s an alternative. Window films offer advanced energy savings and other benefits and can be quickly installed at a fraction of the cost of replacement windows, often with a return on investment in under three years. 

 "Window films professionally installed on structurally sound single or double-pane windows may reduce energy consumption by as much as 30 percent, while the installation cost may be 91.5 percent less than putting in new windows," explained Darrell Smith of the nonprofit International Window Film Association.

“Window film can reduce energy consumption by reducing solar heat gain, reduce the homeowner’s carbon footprint and allow them to enjoy natural light without the negative impact of harsh glare and UV exposure.” Please visit the nonprofit organization website at: www.iwfa.com
