Solar Window Film
Solar Window Film is transparent window tint installed on your existing windows that can save you up to 30% in summer cooling costs. Other benefits include 99% UV protection, reduced glare and easy DIY installation. Get superior heat rejection with reflective solar window films, or for a more classic look use neutral color solar films.
Solar Window Film Cost
DIY Solar Window Film is surprisingly affordable. You can help lower your cooling bills by up to 30%, help insulate your windows during the winter, reduce glare, protect from 99% of UV rays and reduce heat – all in a weekend job. A typical window will cost $40 with DIY installation. A professional can install solar film on your house too, costing anywhere between $5 – $10 per square foot.
How will you get that money back? A standard home in the US Midwest region with 30 windows that installs a high performance solar window film on single paned glass will save around $380 a year in cooling costs. The same house with double paned windows would save a little under $200 per year.
How to Install Solar Window Film
Installing solar window film is a lot like installing decorative window film or security film. Solar window films have a professional grade adhesive backing, which is exposed after removing the clear protective release liner. After measuring and cutting to approximate size, installation is completed using a mild soap/water solution and squeegee to remove excess water. Trim the edges to size and finish squeegee-ing out all of the water to complete installation. For detailed instructions visit our how-to install DIY window film page.
