Selecting the right window film can be a challenge, as there are many manufacturer’s and what feels like an endless selection of film. The first thing consumers should do is narrow down exactly what they are trying to achieve. In many cases, excessive heat is the main concern. With that said though, you may find that certain areas of your home or building are much hotter than others, while in other areas you enjoy the heat coming through the glass. In this scenario, a Low-e window film, such as Vista’s VE-35 or Vista’s VE-50 might be the best choice as they help prevent heat from coming in during the warmer months, while retaining interior heat is cold weather months. There are other considerations too. In residential applications, homeowners may prefer a clear window film over one that is darker or more reflective. Speaking of reflectivity, some products have higher interior or exterior reflectivity than others. What this means is that with interior reflectivity, at nighttime when the lights are on in your home or office you may see your own reflection in the glass. This mirroring effect is undesirable to some people. The same thing can happen if the exterior reflectivity is high. For a residential application, the HOA may not like it. In a commercial application, however it may be exactly what you need to knock out the most heat.
Window film is used for many other applications as well. In commercial settings in areas where vandalism rates are high, A Solar Solution Window Tinting & Films of Denver frequently installs Safety/Security film and anti-graffiti window film.
