Benefits of Sun Control Window Film

Improve Comfort

Windows welcome the sun’s light, but they also welcome the sun’s heat! This can create hot spots and uncomfortably warm interiors. Window film rejects the sun’s heat to improve occupant comfort. In addition to heat rejection, some sun control window films can improve insulation for heat retention in the cool winter months, allowing for comfort and savings year-round.

Boost Energy Efficiency

Fluctuating interior temperatures not only create discomfort, but they can also cause energy bills to skyrocket as HVAC systems try to maintain the desired temperature. In addition to high energy costs, this results in excessive wear and tear of HVAC systems. By regulating more consistent temperatures, window film can make your space more comfortable while also lowering energy costs and boosting energy efficiency.

Protect Against UV Rays

UV rays are not only problematic when you’re outdoors. They can enter your space through windows, causing flooring, furniture, and artwork to fade! Not to mention, they can even harm the skin of occupants within your space. 3M Sun Control Window Film can reject up to 99% of UV rays, protecting and extending the life of your possessions while also protecting occupants’ skin.

Minimize Glare

There’s nothing worse than when the sun casts a harsh glare across computer or TV screens. No matter where you move, you can’t seem to escape it! This is not only a nuisance but can create discomfort for occupants like eyestrain. 3M Sun Control Window Film can minimize glare for improved comfort in your space.

Maintain a Naturally-Lit Space

One of the reasons windows are a highly desired architectural feature is because they welcome natural light into your space! With window film, you can enjoy the sun’s light while combatting issues like glare, heat gain, and fading caused by UV rays. Rather than close off your space from natural light using curtains or blinds, opt for window film!

Spotlight on Fading


The sun’s light can damage and fade your furniture and floors. Many people think this is caused exclusively by UV rays but that’s only part of the equation. The truth is that the sun’s visible light and infrared heat are also responsible for fading. While 3M residential window film won’t prevent fading entirely, it can significantly reduce it by blocking out 99% of the sun’s UV light and a significant portion of the sun’s visible light and infrared.
