Harsh weather is coming, and as the temperatures drop, winter preparation is essential for the colder months. One way to do this is by installing window film. Not only does this film offer a range of benefits, such as reducing energy costs and improving comfort, but it also helps protect your interior furnishings from fading due to sun exposure. In this blog, we’ll discuss some tips on how to prepare your home for winter, focusing on the advantages of installing window film.
Why Use Window Film?
We offer a variety of film options, including the Prestige Series, Night Vision Series, and Ceramic Series. These films reject up to 71% of the heat coming through your windows, making your home more energy-efficient. They also allow up to 70% of visible light to pass through, ensuring that your home remains bright and welcoming.
Benefits of Window Film in the Winter
- Energy Efficiency – By reducing the amount of heat that escapes through your windows, you can lower your energy bills.
- Increased Comfort – The film helps maintain a consistent temperature throughout your home, making it more comfortable.
- More Protection – The film protects your interior, including furniture, art, and other valuables, from fading due to sun exposure.
More Winter-Proofing Tips
While window film is an excellent start, there are other ways to prepare your home for the winter season:
- Insulation – Make sure your home is well-insulated to keep the heat in.
- Weather Stripping – Check doors and windows for drafts and apply weather stripping where needed.
- Heating System Maintenance – Ensure your heating system is in good working condition before the cold sets in.
- Ice Melt – Cover your outdoor facilities, walkways, and driveway to prevent ice from freezing over and increasing the chance of accidental falls.
- Property Assessment – Review your property to identify potential property hazards that could get worse. This includes roof damage, wood erosion, cracked stucco, etc.
Preparing your home for winter is crucial for both comfort and energy efficiency. Our window film options offer a simple yet effective solution to many winter-related problems. By installing this film, you can enjoy a warmer, more comfortable home while also saving on energy costs.
