Low-Emissivity (Low-E) Films

Low-Emissivity (Low-E) films are recommended for all year round. They will keep your home cool in summer and will keep it warm in winter. These low-emissivity films work by allowing in light but blocking infrared and ultraviolet rays. They are known to reflect around 70% of solar heat gain in the summer but will retain about 50% of interior heat during colder months.

Solar Window Film

Often warm air can escape through windows, but the tint will stop this from happening.

The initial application of window tint is relatively easy and isn’t overly expensive. Window tint lasts about five years, however, if well maintained it can last up to ten years.

If at any point you want the tint removed, the removal is just as easy as the application and won’t cause any problems with your windows as it just peels off.
