Thinsulate™ Window Film

Many families throughout Pennsylvania use Thinsulate™ window film to insulate their homes during the winter. Thinsulate™ acts as a seal for glass surfaces, keeping the cold out and manmade heat in. This film allows you to enjoy every inch of your home by eliminated cold spots. While Thinsulate™ is engineered to fortify your house during the winter, customers can experience increased comfort and energy savings throughout the year.

Colleen says:

“I bought [Thinsulate™] about 2 weeks ago specifically for my sunroom. I work from home and my sunroom is my office. This has been a lifesaver. I have already noticed the difference in temperature. I also look forward to the increase in heat retention during the winter months. Love the look. I also added it to my west-facing bedroom window. It is great for privacy as well during the day since that window is next to the driveway.”

Homeowners experience lower electric bills year round with 3M Thinsulate™, but find themselves saving the most money during the winter. For increased savings year round, invest in tinted Thinsulate™ CC75 to help better protect your home from the hot sun. Contact PA Window Tint for more information about Thinsulate™.

Thinsulate™ films are best for homeowners who:

  • Experience harsh winters
  • Desire additional comfort and energy savings in the spring and summer without affecting their home’s appearance

All Season Window Film

An original Temperature Control series film, All Season has stood the test of time. Many choose All Season window film as a less expensive alternative to Thinsulate™. In fact, families with All Season window film see a return on their investment within the first three years of installation!

Both films insulate your home year round, but All Season only comes in silver and amber tints. This provides better protection from the sun but can affect the aesthetic appearance of your home. In addition to energy savings and comfortable indoor temperatures, All Season films reduce glare and block harmful UV rays.

All Season window films are best for families who:

  • Want to better insulate their homes during the winter and block heat during the summer
  • Don’t mind a silver or amber tint to their windows
  • Desire additional benefits like reduced glare and furniture fading
  • Would like to experience energy savings every month

Sun Control

This multilayer film is ideal for homeowners looking for protection from the sun. Sun Control window film significantly reduces heat and harmful UV rays streaming into your house. It also blocks glare and produces noticeable energy savings during the warmer months. In fact, your home could become carbon negative in a matter of months!

Sun Control films vary in tint without sacrificing natural light or aesthetic appeal. Sun Control allows 40% – 70% of natural light to stream through while protecting your skin and furnishings.

Virginia says:

“My window film installation was completed yesterday. Prior to installation, I had floor to ceiling drapes along the two side walls of my cottage…because the sunlight was so strong, sitting in the room was uncomfortable from the glare and heat that could be felt with the drapes open. I will NEVER close the drapes again, except perhaps for privacy in the evening if needed. I can see an INSTANT difference in the look/feel of the room and the overall difference in temperature is amazing! What took me so long!”

Please note that Sun Control window film does not insulate windows during the winter and produces the best results in the summer.

Sun Control window films are ideal for homeowners who:

  • Desire relief from the heat, protection from harmful UV rays, and energy savings during the summer.
  • See an increase in their electric bills during the warmer months
  • Result to alternative methods to insulate their houses during the winter or experience tepid winters

Night Vision

Night Vision window film offers energy savings and added comfort during the warmer months. Its high reflectivity ensures added privacy during the day and crystal clear views at night. Night Vision film blocks up to 71% the sun’s heat to keep you cool and allows 15% to 35% of natural light to stream through your home. It also significantly reduces glare and furniture fading.

Susy says:

“The 3M Sun Control film was installed on 4 small windows in a high vault on the east side plus 3 atrium patio window panels located on the west side. The difference was amazing both in the glare reduction & the heat. The only regret is I didn’t do this years ago!”

Like Sun Control, Night Vision Window film works best during the summer.

Night Vision films are best for families who:

  • Desire added privacy and protection from the sun during the day
  • Would like clearer views of the outdoors
  • Experience hot weather and higher electric bills in the summer
