Can Window Film Help Me Save On Monthly Energy Bills?
By virtue of being an additional physical barrier, window ﬁlms can help reduce energy costs by blocking unwanted heat during warmer months and keeping the warm inside when it is cold outside. These films also work to eliminate unwanted hot and colds spots in a room, helping to reduce excess use of HVAC systems and prolonging their life cycle.
Does Window Film Installation Void My Existing Window Warranty?
Can I Just Get Films from Walmart or Home Depot?
Yes, but we do not recommend DIY window film installation. Why? Film and glass film installation can be quite complex and cumbersome. Without experience handling the product, your films may not look seamless – instead, they’ll appear uneven and distracting. Also, not all products are created equal! LLumar makes a very high quality product with a reliable warranty are key components to any home improvement purchase. Working with a longstanding, knowledgeable company with an experience installation team is the way to go when considering window ﬁlm.
I Was Told My New Windows Came With Solar Protection. Why Would I Need More?
Modern advances in green energy and sustainability have been made with Low-E windows; however, these only block a portion of damaging UV rays. Window films block upwards of 99.9% of this harmful radiation.
Decorative Films vs. Etched or Sandblasted Glass
Decorative ﬁlms, while similar in appearance, offer many advantages over traditional etched or sandblasted glass. For starters, ﬁlms are generally signiﬁcantly less expensive than traditional glass altering treatments. They are also stronger, more durable, easier to clean, highly customizable and removable. In many cases, decorative ﬁlms are now speciﬁed by architects over traditional acid etching or sandblasting techniques.
Can Decorative Window Films Be Customized by Shape/Pattern/Text?
Yes – many of these ﬁlms are designed with customization in mind and can be cut into any shape. Decorative ﬁlms are useful for branding, mission statements, motivational signage or any imaginative shape and pattern design.
Can Window Films Be Printed On & Then Applied to the Glass or Wall?
Many types of decorative window ﬁlm can be printed on, adding almost endless customization possibilities for your home, office or other settings. Certain ﬁlms can also act as one-way viewing ﬁlms, allowing people inside to see out while appearing as an image to the outside.
Can I Remove These Films After Application
Absolutely. Should the needs of your space change, these ﬁlms can be removed, returning the area back into its original appearance without damaging the glass. Our team specializes in the installation of window films – but we can also take them off!
