3M Low E Window Film: Enhancing Comfort and Efficiency

Tim TraxlerInsulating Window Film

Homeowners and business owners alike look for ways to keep their indoor spaces comfortable year round. From weatherstripping to window treatments, finding ways to stay comfortable can seem overwhelming. Fortunately Low E window film can make this job easier, and 3M Low E 20 and Low E 35 offer a great option for a year-round solution to temperature control indoors.

What is Low E Window Film?

Low emissivity (low e) window film is designed to reflect interior temperatures back inside, keeping spaces warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, thereby enhancing the building’s energy efficiency. Like other 3M window films, they also minimize the amount of infrared and ultraviolet light that passes through glass without compromising the amount of visible light that is transmitted. 

Spotlight on 3M Low E 20 and 35

3M Low E 20 and Low E 35 window films boast insulating properties that help maintain comfortable indoor temperatures across seasons—retaining heat during the winter months and rejecting heat during the summer.

Winter Comfort with Insulating Properties

During colder months, 3M Low E 20 and Low E 35 act as a barrier to heat loss, reflecting interior warmth back into the room and reducing the reliance on heating systems. This not only ensures a warmer indoor environment but also contributes to significant energy savings as home and business owners don’t have to heat their spaces as much.

Summer Cooling and UV Protection

Conversely, in the summer, these films reject up to 72% (Low E 35) and 71% (Low E 20) of the sun’s heat, reducing the need for air conditioning. Additionally, they block 99% of UV rays, protecting the interior from sun damage and occupants from harmful exposure

Glare Reduction for Year-Round Comfort

Beyond temperature control, both Low E 20 and Low E 35 reduce glare by 70-80%, enhancing visual comfort for occupants. This makes them ideal for spaces with high sun exposure, improving screen visibility and reducing eye strain.

Benefits Beyond Temperature Control

Installing 3M Low E window films offers more than just temperature regulation. These films can increase property value, maintain the building’s aesthetic by being virtually invisible, and support sustainability goals by reducing energy consumption – did you know that buildings that use window film can qualify for LEED credits?
