Summer is officially over and cooler temperatures are starting to arrive. With energy costs projected to be much higher in the future, now is the best time to begin considering home improvements to make your house more energy efficient. One of the best ways to improve energy efficiency is by making your window openings perform better. This is particularly true with older homes that often have single pane or older double pane construction. We came across a great article in Times Square Chronicles that discusses some ways to make your older windows more energy efficient.
While the article discusses several ways to improve the energy efficiency of your windows, they specifically mention the benefits of using home window films as well. The article states that:
“Window film is an energy efficient layer that can be added to windows, improving how you heat and cool your home. There are solar film options that block ultraviolet rays so it can not just help with heating and cooling issues, but also protect your rugs and furnishings against sun damage.”
Are you aware that window film products can be retrofitted to existing windows to reject heat in the Summer, which saves on cooling costs, and some films even are designed to retain heat in the Winter to help save on heating costs. Not only can this make your home more comfortable year round, but you may be able to maintain that comfort level without breaking the bank.
