What is the best window film for homes in Belvedere, CA? Finding the right window film for your home can be a challenge. When choosing window film, the first question is: Why do I need window film? Are you trying to reduce the sun's impact on your flooring and furniture? Are you hoping to reduce your energy bill? Is glare making it hard for you to watch television or use your digital devices? Would you like to create a more secure home? Home window film can help you solve or minimize these concerns.
Hiring an experienced window film specialist is the best way to find the right film. In fact, you may discover that more than one window film is needed. For example, the Belvedere, CA home you see in this post had the ClimatePro team install two different window films: 3M Prestige and 3M Dusted Crystal. Let's see what each film does, where it was applied, and why.
3M Prestige: Sun Control Window Film
For the living area of this home, we installed 3M Prestige 70. This popular sun or solar control window film solves some of the most common issues. For instance, the 3M Prestige Series of window films allow between 40% to 70% of the sun's natural light into your home. It also reduces the sun's infrared light by 97% and rejects up to 60% of its heat. These features combine to help you reduce cooling costs and create a more balanced interior climate.
3M Prestige window film also reduces the impact of UV rays. UV or ultraviolet rays cause fading to art, furniture, and flooring. By filtering up to 99.9% of those damaging rays, you'll not only be protecting your property, but you'll also be reducing your exposure as well. UV rays are a major cause of skin damage.
Here are some other benefits of the 3M Prestige Window Film Series:
- Allows for high transmission of natural light into your home.
- Low reflectivity, both inside and outside.
- This non-metalized window film won't interfere with your mobile devices.
- Can become carbon neutral in as little as six months from installation.
- Includes 3M's comprehensive warranty.
3M Privacy Window Tint: Where You Need It
The other film we installed in this lovely house in Belvedere is 3M Dusted Crystal. As you can see in the above image, we added it to the bathroom windows in the shower. It goes without saying that a window in the shower needs privacy! That's where this frosted film comes in handy. If you want privacy while allowing some light to flow through, this is a great choice. This kind of privacy window film can be used in bathrooms, kitchens, living rooms, garage doors, and more.
