What Are The Best Heat Control Films? 

January 30, 2020 in Aggrigate, Energy Efficient Window Tinting

With so many heat control window films available–it can be difficult to choose. Since different films work through different mechanisms (like reflection and absorption) they come in a variety of materials. Ceramic, polyester, and metal are three of the most common. Also, every major brand has at least 2-6 selections in each series.  This adds even more options to choose from. So which ones do the best job at controlling heat? Read our picks below.

Window Films That Perform Best In The Heat

Enerlogic 35: While reflective films and EnerLogic window films provide energy savings on cooling–EnerLogic window film goes a step beyond. It also reduces radiant heat flow through the window from external sources of solar heat gain. This makes for some of the greatest savings on summer cooling bills.

3M Prestige: Many times window films that reject heat and add to interior temperature reduction are dark. The 3M Prestige series films are non-metallic and therefore clear. One of the first films to offer clear non-metalized film selections–3M is a household name you can trust to be an effective heat reducer for your windows. 

LLumar: Dual-Reflective Series: These films are more reflective on the outside than on the inside giving you better views day and night. This doesn’t mean these films aren’t tough on the heat that could transfer through windows. Rather, they are well-suited for application on homes in areas with a lot of sun.

Hanita OptiLite 75 Xtra: This film uses a subtle blue-colored tint to filter about 88% of heat-build up due to IR radiation. This keeps Salt Lake City homes cooler but still lets in plenty of daylight. This “SolarZone Spectrally Selective Film” provides comfort, style and blocks 99% of UV rays.  These are the rays that cause your furniture and floors to fade.

SolarGard ECOLUX 70: One of the most high-tech solar-heat-reducing products on the market today, ECOLUX 70 lets in 68% of natural light but still keeps out an impressive 52% of the sun’s energy. This puts more money in your pocket during warm and cold months from utility savings

Hüper Optik Therm-X Films: Using a unique blend of metals, this high-tech film is one of the best on the market for reducing solar heat gain. It allows in ample visible but also dramatically reduces HVAC consumption. 

Any of these fine films would make a fine choice for your Salt Lake City home to reduce heat gain. To find out which one is best for you, schedule a free on-site window consultation and let Salt Lake Window Tinting help you find out.
