How does window film work?
When sunlight comes through your window, both solar heat and UV light is transmitted through your glass. When you apply window film to your window glass, depending on the film you choose, it helps to reject up to 78% of the solar heat and up to 99.9% of the harmful UV rays. As a result, you are able to remain cooler, protect your furnishings from fading, help your air conditioner be more efficient and save on energy costs.
