Natural light streaming into the house is something most homeowners will place a premium on when scouting for a residential property. However, you will find that the larger your windows, the more glare you have to endure, particularly during the hotter months. Not to mention the thermal gain that your residence will be susceptible too if you have annealed glass windows. If you would like to enhance the comfort in your home without investing in double glazed windows, you should consider window film. The following are a few reasons why every homeowner should install window film on their residence.
Window film increases energy efficiency
A major advantage of investing in window film for your house is the energy savings that it will provide you with. Some of these self-adhesive films are designed with solar control. This feature gives the window film the ability to block out the radiant heat of the sun while allowing the light to penetrate your windows. Thus, your home stays illuminated without the added concern of having to be heavily reliant on your air conditioning, as the solar gain is prevented. You will find this feature especially beneficial during the summer when residences are most susceptible to thermal gain.
Window film boosts your privacy
Large windows may be perfect for keeping your home bright and airy, but they also can make your home vulnerable to prying eyes. Lack of privacy would be a major concern if you live in a cul de sac and neighbours or pedestrians can easily peer into your home. Rather than keeping your curtains or blinds drawn all day, you should opt for window films. The films are available in various degrees of frosting to suit the level of privacy that you would desire. For instance, street facing windows would do great with opaque frosted films whereas other windows could get away with decorative frosting. These frosted films would also be much more economical when compared to their frosted glass counterparts.
Window film is highly versatile
Another main reason why window films would be beneficial to any Australian home is the enhanced versatility that they provide. These films can be used for a broad assortment of applications. Whether you are looking to increase the value of your home by boosting its appeal, decrease your energy consumption or simply reinforce the security of your windows, you are assured of finding window film to suit your needs.
