Low-E Film Services
You no longer need to think of window tinting only during the summer! 3M™’s all season films provide benefits year round. No need to limit the insulation to your walls – 3M™ Thinsulate Window Film is insulation for your windows. Now you can enjoy the benefits of a Low-E window without having to replace your windows. This revolutionary window film helps retain the cool air conditioned air in during the summer and the heat in during the winter months all while being virtually invisible. Your existing single pane windows will be upgraded to nearly match the values of a double pane window. 3M Thinsulate Window Film also reduces 99% of the UV rays, helping to preserve your valuables.
- A single pane window loses 20 times as much heat as the same area in an adjacent well insulated wall.
- 30% of all energy used to heat and cool homes in the United States goes out the window – literally!
- It is estimated that 34% of heating and cooling in commercial buildings is due to your windows.
The film will improve the insulation value of a typical single pane window to mimic the insulation of a double pane window. Have double pane windows? After 3M™ Thinsulate™ is installed your windows will be acting as if they are triple pane!
How does Thinsulate work? By reflecting radiant heat! Radiant heat is based solely on the temperature difference between the outside of the glass and the inside of the glass – Thinsulate is designed to help prevent the transfer of radiant heat from one side of glass to the other. This means heat from the outside during the summer trying to enter and the heat during the winter trying to escape.
3M™ Amber 35 Low E
Same great benefits as Thinsulate but with glare reduction! During the summer months you’ll benefit from high energy savings with total solar energy rejections as high as 75%. But rest assured, this window film is not only working during the hot sun, during the winter months Amber Low E will insulate the glass to keep your artificial heating inside. So now, your HVAC can enjoy a lighter load year round; less strain on HVAC = longevity of equipment.
