Energy Efficient Window Film Options for Your Denver Home

Are you searching for ways to lower your electric bill, reduce heat, and increase the energy efficiency of your space? Energy-efficient window films are an ideal way to do just that!

Installing energy efficient window film in Denver homes can reduce cooling costs by 30% because of lower AC usage. That means you will have a lower energy bill and stay cool simultaneously!

Let’s discuss the best options to consider when buying window film for your home in Denver.


Options for Energy Efficient Window Film in Denver

Energy efficient films are directly installed on glass surfaces like windows, skylights, and patio doors. They either absorb or reflect the energy coming through the glass. There are various kinds of energy efficient window films made today. Here is a comparison of some of the different options:


Nano-Ceramic Window Film

Nano ceramic window films are clearer than typical metalized ones. Nano-ceramic technology reflects heat instead of allowing it to transfer through the glass. This allows your windows to maintain a higher performance level and keep excess heat out of your home. 


Low-E Film

Low-E refers to ‘low-emissivity.’ These films contain metal oxide or special materials that deflect infrared and UV rays. Low-E films are adhered to the inside of your windows to improve their energy efficiency. A Low-E energy efficient window film in Denver can reflect around 70 to 80 percent of solar heat gain during the summer. 


Spectrally Selective Films

Among all the energy-efficient film categories, spectrally selective ones are among the highest performing when it comes to blocking heat. These films use spectrally selective technology to reflect and absorb heat. They only let certain wavelengths of light through your windows. Natural light is allowed into your home but infrared heat and UV rays are not. This way the room remains bright, but there’s less heat.
