As utility costs continue to take a significant bite out of most household budgets, it is only natural that you would look for any way to add insulation to your home. If you have already taken your attic, wall, and crawlspace insulation to the highest possible R-value and you are looking for more you could do, considering window film might seem an unlikely solution. You’ll be happy to learn that an innovative product from 3M can help.

Window Film

The 3M Thinsulate™ Window Film Climate Control Series provides an added level of insulation to keep you warm during cold winter months and more comfortable during the summer too. It is a virtually invisible insulation that will enhance comfort and provide added efficiency throughout the year. If you have single-pane windows, adding this window film will give you close to the efficiency of a double-pane. If you have a double-pane, you will achieve close to triple-pane efficiency. When you consider that a single pane window loses 20 times as much heat as an insulated wall, you can understand the considerable savings you could achieve with this window film product.

In addition to providing good heat rejection for added comfort and energy savings, your new window film will also significantly block harmful UV rays that cause fading and damage. You’ll gain all these benefits yet not lose the aesthetics of your windows.
