Beat the Heat This Summer With 3M™ Window Films

 In Solar Films

Temperatures are rising across the country this May, and for Southwest Florida, the heat is already here. According to, the Sunshine State is already feeling summer temperatures.

The good news is that a simple home improvement project could help you to cool off while also lowering typically higher energy bills during the summer months. 3M’s award-winning Sun Control Window Films incorporate innovation, technology, and science to keep you cool and comfortable inside.

Block the Heat

Summer is the time of year that you want to block the sun’s heat the most. 3M™ Sun Control Window Film Prestige Series has proven to reject 97 percent of the sun’s heat-producing infrared light and up to 60 percent of the heat coming through the windows. This helps prevent hot spots in your home where sunlight casts through windows. Instead, your home will have a more even temperature.

In fact, what sets 3M™ Window Film apart is the way the light waves are controlled as they pass through or reflect off each of the layers of film. 3M™ Sun Control Window Film Prestige Series is designed to work harder when the sun is higher. This means greater protection and comfort during the hottest part of the day.

Don’t Block the View

Most people think that window film requires a tint, like sunglasses. That’s not true for 3M™ Sun Control Window Film Prestige Series and Ultra Prestige Series. These film types use a non-metalized, multilayer optical film technology. Because they are nonmetallic, they don’t impact window aesthetics, aren’t susceptible of corrosion, and don’t interfere with electronic signals. There is a virtually clear option – which means that your view doesn’t have to be tinted.

Added UV Protection

You can protect your skin and your belongings with 3M™ Window Film. In addition to using sunscreen on your skin, you also can protect yourself by adding 3M™ Sun Control Window Film on your windows. The films are designed to block 99 percent of the sun’s UV rays. This advanced UV protection also prevents furniture and floors from fading.

Energy Cost Savings

Because of the science and technology behind 3M™ Sun Control Window Film, you may see a difference in your energy costs. Your air conditioning unit will not have to work so hard to keep your home a consistent temperature. This means more money in your pocket.

The summer heat is here but that does not mean that you have to suffer inside your home. Let the light in and have a peace of mind after adding 3M™ Sun Control Window Films. Call NBI Suncontrol at (941) 360-8500 to schedule a free estimate.
