How Heat Reducing Window Film Benefits Long Island Homes in More Ways Than One

Heat Reduction:  The main reason to install heat-reducing window film is, of course,  to lower the temperature in Long Island homes.  Whether you live in a towering brownstone or tiny apartment, heat-reducing window film is an all-around solution to cooling the space off.  It works by reflecting heat off the window, so it never gets inside in the first place.  This is what we refer to as–solar heat gain reduction.   Some films can even reduce solar heat gain by up to 80%.  Keeping the spaces directly next to windows cool along with the entire house on the hottest of days. 

Utility Savings:  Just reducing solar heat gain in your Long Island home will save you a ton of cash. But, another huge way that heat-reducing window film saves money is by acting as insulation for your home’s windows too.  These films trap the air you pay to cool inside which lowers A/C usage and the corresponding bills too.

Glare-Reduction:  If you have issues with heat gain on windows–you likely have a glare problem too.  This is why glare reduction is such a great benefit of heat-reducing window film.  For southern or western facing windows,  heat-reducing window film will have you saying goodbye to both heat and that annoying and harmful morning/afternoon glare.
