5 Benefits of 3M™ Thinsulate™ Window Film For Homeowners

Whether the business energy bills or keeping home fuel bills to a minimum are your responsibility, summer giving way to the autumn and winter can offer its fair share of concerns as the weather inevitably begins to cool

With ever increasing costs from energy companies in the UK resulting in rising winter fuel bills, it is all too easy to find that your finances are being put under significant strain.

Maximising the effectiveness of your heating system is essential if you would like to keep energy costs down during the cold winter months. Thankfully however, an effective option is now available.

Key Benefits

  1. Helps keep you warm during cold winter months.
  2. Good heat rejection provides additional comfort and energy savings in the summer months.
  3. Film offers high visible light transmission with a neutral appearance to help maintain a building’s existing appearance.
  4. Significantly blocks the amount of harmful UV rays that cause fading, helping to extend the life of furnishings.
  5. Includes a comprehensive warranty from 3M.

3M™ Thinsulate™ Window Film Climate Control Series

3M™ Thinsulate™ Window Film Climate Control Series provides the traditional benefits of 3M™ Sun Control Window Film by rejecting heat and blocking harmful UV rays. But it also takes performance a step further to protect against heat loss during cold weather.

The film has a patented construction that helps reflect more interior heat back into the room, improving personal comfort by reducing cold drafts near windows, which can help save on energy costs. The high visible light transmission provides a neutral appearance that doesn’t change the look of your home or building.

3M™ Thinsulate™

How Does 3M™ Thinsulate™ Climate Control Window Film Work?

For decades, insulation has been used in the walls and ceilings of our homes to control the flow of heat between inside and out. 3M™ Thinsulate™ Climate Control Window Film works much in the same way. It improves the insulation value of a typical single pane window to that of a double pane window and a double pane window to a triple pane window. This helps keep the warmth in during the winter and the heat out in the summer.

This works by providing increased insulation performance, much like upgrading single pane to double pane and double pane to triple pane windows. Application of this film is much, much less expensive than actually replacing all that glass, and the results rival or match the performance, and appearance, of new glass.

Please Note – Historic registered buildings, newer office towers, and every sort of building in between can be improved by the addition of 3M™ Thinsulate™ Climate Control Window Film. It enhances sustainability, comfort, and helps to provide fade protection, while remaining virtually invisible, with a neutral appearance that will not dramatically change the look of your windows – inside or out.

Winter Is Coming – Keep The Cold Outside With Solar Control Window Film

Make no mistake about it, as Ned Stark would say (despite the fact it may be difficult to tell with the current temperatures!) winter is coming……

Keeping warm but cutting energy costs is not just for penny-pinchers, it’s for anyone who wants to enter the New Year a step ahead rather than facing spiraling energy costs.

 

Did You Know?

Anywhere from 35% – 40% of the energy you use to keep your home environment nice and warm during the winter is lost through the windows. The issue is complicated when considering the alternative; installing double pane glass windows in an attempt to control this heat loss can be costly in itself.  So either way you are looking at a major cost for warmth.

The good news is that we can provide a solution… Introducing Solar Control Window Film and The Benefits it Can Offer!

Many modern property and home owners have recently become aware of the many benefits that this remarkable budget-friendly innovation can have on their home investment. Not only by slashing the costs of their energy bills but doing so at a considerably lower price than other alternatives.

Following are some of the most prominent advantages of solar control window film, in terms of energy saving solutions:

  • An Easy Installation – This solar control film is a thin sheet of material that will be applied right onto your windows. Installation is a quick and easy affair, your home will be finished in a day or two at the most and energy savings commence immediately.
  • Highly Efficient Energy Saving Solution – The paper thin material that will be retrofitted to the windows of the building will benefit your home in a similar fashion as double pane glass windows. Unlike the installation of double pane glass windows, however, the installation costs are relatively low.
  • Year Round Benefits – Due to the innovative development of this quality window film, solar control window film can act as an effective insulation, forming an impassable barrier between the comfortable conditioning inside the home and the harsher elements outside. These benefits work year round too! In the summer you solar control window film will work to repel the UV rays and heat from the Sun, in the winter the film will work to keep the interior of the house warm by preventing the heat transfer between the indoors and outdoors.
  • Durable Materials for Increased Savings – In addition to the low cost of installation and huge energy savings that solar film provides, the film itself can be relied on for many years to come. Combining the year round energy savings, immediate energy saving benefits, low installation charges and length of service life you can easily see how this method of energy saving will more than pay for itself (many times over) within its service life.

Reduce Heat Loss During Winter

During the winter, there can be no escaping the fact that even the most energy efficient glazing will lose heat. As your heating gets cranked up, energy bills can become unnecessarily high as you battle to keep your rooms warm.

Whatever your climate, 3M™ Thinsulate™ Window Film Climate Control 75 can help to keep you and your family comfortable all year round. The unique low emissivity, or “Low E”, coating helps retain warmth in the winter and cool air in the summer by increasing your windows’ insulation value. A single-pane performs close to a double pane, a double-pane performs close to a triple-pane.

Virtually invisible, the look of your window barely changes, inside or out. Yet it still helps protect furniture, floors, upholstery and artwork from UV rays that are the main cause of fading.

Easier and more affordable than replacing your windows, 3M™ Thinsulate™ Window Film is an efficient, cost-effective way to meet your window insulation needs.

Safety Window Film – Taking Security to a New Level

There can be little doubt that glass can be a fragile and potentially dangerous material, which presents a significant chance of injury and secondary damage when broken.

Regulation 14 of the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 states that glass in risk critical locations must meet specified safety standards, and through the application of specialist safety window film from WF Glazing Protection, you can be certain to receive an efficient and highly effective solution.

How Does Safety Window Film Work?

Safety window film has been designed to substantially reduce the negative impact of broken glass. If untreated or standard glazing breaks, the shards can fall away from the frame creating an immediate and dangerous hazard. However the application of safety window film helps to hold the broken glass in place to prevent it from causing any further problems.

The application of safety film will upgrade glass to safety glass standards, thus ensuring that there will be no need to incur the additional expense of undertaking an expensive glazing replacement programme to ensure health and safety compliance is met.

Turning a Weakness into a Strength

With the 3M™ Safety and Security Window Films available from WF Glazing Protection, we will be able to help you turn your windows from one of your property’s weaknesses into one of its strengths.

By offering proven help against threats such as break-ins, and the increasing threat posed by extreme weather, 3M™ Safety and Security Window Films have been designed to help hold the glass fragments together, reducing potential injury from flying glass during a breakage.

Because these films are designed to hold the glass together, they work to form a stronger barrier, absolutely perfect for slowing down and deterring any prospective criminals who may look to use your window as a method of gaining entry to your property.

Safety Upgrades

Safety film can be fitted internally or externally and once installed by WF Glazing Protection’s team of professional installers, your existing float glass will be upgraded to meet the necessary standard BS EN 12600, previously BS6206.

This specialist window film can also be combined with a variety of other benefits to provide increased functionality such as privacy and solar protection for your property.
