Solar Shading Window Film
Lower your energy bills while creating a healthier, more comfortable environment in your home by adding solar shading to your windows. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, adding solar shading can help reduce energy costs up to 30 percent. Our Solar Gard window film will block over 75 percent of the heat from solar radiation from passing through windows and entering your home. Installing window film will also reduce glare and block over 99 percent of ultraviolet (UV) light from entering your home. In addition to the health risks it poses, UV light is also responsible for the fading of floors, carpets, curtains, and other home furnishings.
Window film is a superior alternative to the bulky solar screens found on older homes. Solar screens are cumbersome, unsightly and distort the view from the windows they cover. Instead, thin and subtle window film (only 1/8 inch thick) offers the same energy efficiency benefits and UV protection as solar screens without impeding your views and preserving the look and feel of your home. Our window film is available in custom colors and gauges to best fit your home’s needs.
Adding solar shading will give you a healthier, more efficient home and when applied in conjunction with other energy efficiency measures can result in significant energy savings. In Austin and Central Texas, all windows facing south and west are in need of solar shading, as well as any other exposed windows that have no natural shading.
For Austin customers, solar shading is eligible for rebates when combined with other energy efficiency measures or if certain conditions are met. For further information on how solar shading can benefit your home, contact us for a free energy audit.
