Enerlogic Window Film for Winter Months
How Window Film Benefits Your Home During Winter
When most people think of window film, they think of the benefits it brings during the summer months, but Enerlogic Window Film actually works year-round, making window film an even better investment for your home.
Colorado can have some seriously harsh winters, and many people who don’t live here often picture the entire state covered in snow for the entire year. Heating costs can be unbearable throughout the season, especially in the many older homes in Denver and the surrounding areas, and keeping your home at a comfortable temperature can be difficult.
If the windows on your home are in good shape, window film might be the best option for better insulation, rather than complete window replacement. Replacing windows is costly, and often unnecessary. When your window frames are still in good shape, but perhaps just a little out of date, consider window film to solve your insulation problems instead.
How can Window Film Help in Cold Weather?
Many home window film applications only help during the summertime, reflecting UV rays away from the home and keeping the heat outside. Enerlogic, however, has developed window film that also works to keep the cold out, even in the most extreme cold. Adding window film can make it easier to keep your home comfortable all year.
One of the biggest benefits of window film is the savings you’ll see on your energy bills each month. After your window film installation, you’ll save up 60 percent on your heating and cooling bills, which actually means that your film will pay for itself in as little as 2-5 years. Replacement windows can take anywhere from 10-20 years to get your return, so if your windows are still in good shape, window film can be the better option for your home.
One of the other amazing benefits of window film that you may not have thought of is that it will help you heating units last longer. When cool air comes through your window, your heater has to work harder to keep your home warm, and therefore the life of your unit is shortened. By improving the efficiency of your windows, you lower the stress on your heating unit, and it will last longer, translating to less maintenance and replacement costs for you in the long run.
Of course, the benefit that is most noticeable after window film is how comfortable you’ll feel in your home. No longer will you spend your winter days bundled in your ski coat while you lounge around the house; you’ll be able to afford and accomplish a warmer home after your window film installation.
At this point, you may be thinking that it all sounds great, but it may be an investment you cannot afford. Fortunately, window film costs a small fraction of replacement windows, only about $1,100 for the average home.
