While we are getting closer to the fall, there are still days where your home can get very hot, forcing your AC to work overtime. If you are looking for a way to save on your energy, window films can definitely help you. Window films can be installed either as a permanent addition to your window or a temporary one. They filter out the sunlight to lessen its effect on the temperature inside your home. While this might not be a huge difference, it definitely adds up, especially if you have it applied to all the windows that get a lot of sun.
Naturally, some might prefer to have the heat from the sun during the colder months of the year, and in such cases, using a temporary film is a better solution, since it can be removed when needed.
Installation of window film is not very complicated, and it is definitely something that you could do on your own. You can find it in most hardware stores where it is sold by the roll.
