3M Residential Window Films


Energy Efficiency, Comfort & Security


3M’s window films are designed to address the inefficiencies and vulnerabilities of your home’s windows.

How are windows inefficient?


  • Allow in the sun’s heat in the summer which costs you money and personal comfort
  • Allow your heating system’s heat to escape in the winter which costs you money and personal comfort
  • Excessive light from the sun which causes glare and furniture fade

How are windows vulnerable?


  • They tend to be the weakest point of a home making it easy for burglars to gain entry
  • When glass breaks it can cause injury to those nearby


One product, manufactured since 1966, can address all the aforementioned issues without changing the appearance of your windows – 3M Window Film.

Efficiency & Comfort


The windows in your home might be too inefficient if you experience any or all of the following:

  • You’re too hot in the summer
  • You’re too cold in the winter
  • Your HVAC furnace / boiler / air-conditioning “can’t keep up”
  • Your utility bills are out of sight

3M Insulating Window Films decrease the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) and U Value of your window. In simpler terms, 3M’s window films will increase the energy efficiency of your windows. It’s almost like turning a single pane window into double pane, or a double pane window into triple pane.

For instance, take a standard double pane window found in most 20-30 year-old homes. They are not necessarily as energy efficient as they should be. Installing 3M’s Thinsulate Climate Control Window Film lowers the SHGC and U Value of your existing windows and virtually turns them into triple pane glass – all at a fraction of the price of window replacement. And without the headache!

Improve the efficiency of your existing windows and you’ll reduce heat transfer and loss, which makes you more comfortable and decreases your monthly utility bills.

Furniture Fade


Both financially and emotionally, you’ve made a tremendous investment in your home. Once that investment is made, the next step is keeping it looking beautiful.

Unfortunately, fabrics, wallpaper, wood floors, photos, and other valuables will fade when unfiltered sun shines through your windows.

While 3M residential window film won’t prevent fading, it can significantly reduce it by blocking out 99% of the sun’s UV light and a significant portion of the sun’s visible light and infrared.

Safety & Security


Typically, the most vulnerable points of entry into your home are its windows. That’s because glass is a lot easier to break than brick, wood, or most other homebuilding materials. A burglar knows that breaking window glass is the easiest way to enter your home.
