How are SunSafe films applied?
Professionally trained Sunsafe window technicians apply the films to the interior surface of your windows. The films are meticulously applied using a gentle liquid that is safe to use in commercial properties and homes.
Will SunSafe window films change the appearance of my home or office?
Depending on the product you choose, our window films can dramatically improve the appearance of your space. Whether you are looking for a subtle look, or a small frosted design or tint, it will improve your space and also save you money. Our Sunsafe product line includes a wide selection of styles, from rich tints to frosted films and softer, more subtle tints.
Will the products make my home safer?
Yes. If the glass were to break, the film would help bind the dangerous shards together. Safety and Security window films are specifically designed to lessen the dangers of broken glass resulting from everything from hurricanes to tornadoes and earthquakes.
How much money can I expect to save on my energy bill?
Sunsafe films dramatically filter the warm ultraviolet light that transfers through the windows. Our tints are designed to keep the cool air inside while preventing the heat from coming in, therefore lowering the need to use excessive amounts of air conditioning. However, the precise savings depend on other factors such as how much direct sunlight you receive, which way your building faces, and how much energy is being used in the home or business.
In most cases, there is a 3- to 4-year payback period on your utility bills and it could reduce 33%-50% of your energy costs annually. Utility rates have been shown to increase just about every other year, so your lifetime warranty is a sure money saver.
How long does this last?
SunSafe Window Films carry a manufacturer's lifetime warranty for residential properties and 10- & 12-year warranties for commercial buildings.
Does this stop items from fading?
Whether fading is caused by exposure to intensive sunlight for a short time or a long exposure to weaker sunlight, fading is typically inevitable. However, severe fading can be significantly lessened with the use of home window tint. It may not be completely eliminated, but the installation of film can drastically reduce the damage to keep furnishings and fabrics fresh for years to come.
Is this like "Low-E" glass?
Low-E coatings are designed to be an improvement in the heat retention capability of double pane glass during the heating season. They do very little to control solar heat gain or UV light in scorching areas like San Antonio, TX.
Will this harm my plants?
Most plants actually grow better behind window film because it reduces the stress caused by rapid changes in temperature.
How do I wash the film?
Simple household glass cleaners and soft paper towels. We recommend that you polish the film like you would a Formica countertop.
Can the films give me privacy?
Some films can provide daytime privacy, but at night people can see in.
Do I have to do all my windows?
All windows in any one room, as well as any room that has items of value, should be treated.
