If you are seeking eco-friendly and energy-efficient solutions for your home, you may be wondering: is window film sustainable? At Concord Window Film, we understand the importance of sustainable living and are committed to offering products that align with these values. In this post, we’ll explore the sustainability aspects of window film.
What is Window Film?
Window film is a thin laminate that is installed on the interior of glass surfaces in residential and commercial buildings. It comes in various types, such as the solar control, matte white privacy film, silver reflective film, and safety film that Concord Window Film offers. These films provide benefits like energy savings, increased privacy, and enhanced safety.
Is Window Film Sustainable?
There are many factors that make window film a sustainable choice for your home. Among them are:
One of the primary sustainability benefits of solar control window film is its ability to conserve energy. By blocking a significant amount of solar heat, window films reduce the need for air conditioning in summer, leading to lower energy consumption and reduced carbon footprint.
The U.S. Department of Energy considers window film an energy efficient window covering and many states and municipalities offer rebates through local utilities for the installation of window film. Finally, the larger building community recognizes the role window film plays in making a building more energy efficient and awards LEED points for window film installation in buildings.
Reduced Carbon Emissions
By improving your home’s energy efficiency, window films indirectly contribute to a reduction in carbon emissions. Window film helps you use less energy to keep your home cool thereby reducing your carbon footprint. This is crucial in the fight against climate change.
By upgrading your windows instead of replacing them, you are keeping old windows out of a landfill protecting our planet from trash and unintentional chemicals potentially leaking into the soil from older paint on wooden windows or old PVC windows.
Protection of Interiors
By blocking UV rays, heat, and visible light – the main factors of fading – window film protects furnishings and fabrics from sun damage, extending their life and reducing the need for replacements. Learn more about how to protect your furniture from fading.
Longevity and Durability
Our high-quality films are designed to last, reducing the need for frequent replacements and thus minimizing waste. You can expect your ComforTech™ Ceramic Series film to last 20 years or longer.
Window film is indeed a sustainable choice for homeowners looking to reduce their environmental footprint while enjoying benefits like energy savings, privacy, and comfort. By choosing Concord Window Film, you’re not just enhancing your home — you’re investing in a sustainable future.
