Residential Window Film: Energy Saving, Safety, Daylighting and Decorative Solutions For Safer, More Comfortable Living
Columbia Filters is proud to provide homes and apartment buildings in the New Jersey and the entire New York Metropolitan area with a tremendous variety of residential window film options, developed by the inventor of window film technology, 3M™. Residential window film technology has come a long way since first invented in 3M™ labs in the 90’s. It’s usefulness in a variety of ways can be measured in terms of cost-savings, security, energy and comfort. There is also an aesthetic element in certain residential film applications in which decorative film is applied. More on that later.
You love your windows and the light they bring into your home. But as much as they offer views and natural light, they’re also the entry for excessive heat that will fade valuable furnishings and artwork, and open the door, so to speak, to harmful UV rays, too, sometimes making it uncomfortable to sit or play in a den or family room. 3M™ Sun Control Window Films allow you to let the light in and keep the heat and damage out. Best of all you can get these great benefits without changing the appearance of your home. And over time they will pay for themselves in decreased utility costs. All along however, you’ll enjoy the comfort they provide.

Glare-Reducing 3M™ Sun Control Residential Residential Window Film
In addition to improving television and computer screen viewing, the energy savings factor in these window films can reduce air-conditioning costs considerably, especially if a large window emits so much sunlight that it becomes difficult to effectively cool a room; worse if the thermostat is in the line of the sun’s burning rays! Sun Control window films can reduce cooling costs by up to 30%, and that adds up to big savings in the summer months. What’s more, these films can significantly miminize fade on furnishings, artwork, and carpets, too. Perhaps best of all, Sun Control films for homes improve the overall comfort in a room, and help maintain temperature consistency from one room to another.
