Heating and air conditioning contributes considerably to your bills. Whether you are a home owner or own a business, rising fuel costs are a concern for us all. In today’s modern glass and chrome buildings, your employees and staff are exposed to a lot of sunlight and glare. Solar UV light is detrimental to health and is considered a prime cause for the development of skin cancer. Heat and direct glare from the sun is not good for your furniture or carpets as well. Homes and offices that are exposed to a lot of sunlight may be uncomfortable for residents and workers. The color of your furniture, curtains and upholstery gets faded easily. The best way to avoid these recurring issues is to get good quality window films installed on glass window panes.

To keep the solar heat out, low-emissivity coating can be applied to the outside of the glazed window panes. Alternatively, in colder climates to keep the heat inside, the coating is applied on the inside. The coating in this case helps to trap the heat. Either way the application of window films is a very effective way to reduce your fuel bills. These specially fabricated coatings can cut down a substantial amount of the solar glare and provide a comfortable work environment. For business establishments, the application of security films provide protection from sun, UV light, shattering of glass from explosions and projectiles and also keep storefront displays looking fresh and bright, without the concern for the fading and deterioration of fabrics and furnishings.

Window films are found in a wide variety of colors, designs and textures. Some coatings are made to resemble acid etchings or sand-blasted glass. Decorative window tints add style and privacy to your home décor. They reduce solar glare and protect your place from the prying eyes of potential housebreakers and criminals. With correct application of coatings, one way mirror effect may also be achieved.

Window films may also protect the residents and occupants of a building from shattering glass in case of any explosion or breakages from looters etc. If your children accidentally break a window, they will be saved much of the injury due to shards of glass flying from shattering of the glass pane, if the windows are coated with safety films. City builders in America and Canada are choosing to protect commercial properties with installation of window films. Canada residents can use tinting as a good way to reduce fuel costs and protect homes and businesses.
