Windows provide homes and businesses with picturesque views and an influx of natural light. Beautiful sunshine tends to lift the spirits. But that beautiful sunshine also means it can get quite hot, which is why Glamour Glaze in Utah has been helping people install films that lower the sun’s intensity and become more energy efficient. Our team has been providing service to Utah residents for more than 30 years and we’re available to walk you through the benefits of the window film process.
Heat Control Matters
It seems like there’s a time of day when sunlight coming through a window makes a space too intense or hot to enjoy. Your options are to either close the blinds or move to another room. Either way, these hot spots cause you to lose that terrific view and natural light.
Glamour Glaze Heat Control Window Films can help restore the comfort of your home or business all day, every day. As Utah’s top window film provider, our heat and light minimizing products allow you to cool key areas, reduce painful glare and lessen the amount of harmful UV rays in your personal space. You’ll gain an important level of comfort throughout your home or business without having to draw the curtains.
Window Films Help Control Heat
The radiation we experience from the sun takes three different forms. There is the light that we see every day. Then there are infrared and ultraviolet (UV) rays that we feel but don’t see. Window film is designed to block the harmful rays that may be unhealthy for us. It can also reflect heat. That means window film is energy efficient in terms of cooling your space. Because our products are based on the latest non-metallic, multilayered and Nano-technologies, we’re able to provide an optimal product for any window.
Infrared Light and UV Light
We experience infrared and UV in the form of heat. As we’re all well aware, too much can have a damaging effect on our skin. These unseen rays discolor furniture and rugs, cause wrinkling and even skin cancer. It’s important that you and your loved ones are not unnecessarily exposed to infrared and UV rays. Our window films can reduce harmful rays by up to 97 percent. At Glamour Glaze, we help create a light healthy environment.
Window Films Mean Energy Savings
Controlling the level of infrared and UV rays that penetrate your windows has a direct relationship with your energy costs. Window film helps reduce energy loss in two ways. When temperatures spike into the 90s during the summer, so do Utah energy bills. That’s because 15 percent of the average home’s exterior is made of glass. Our window films push those heat-causing rays away.Non-treated glass also gets cold and allows heat to escape at a higher rate than a film-treated window. The U.S. Department of Energy reports that the average home wastes $760 per year in energy costs. By having our authorized dealers at Glamour Glaze install your window film, you will be able to reduce energy costs and waste throughout the year. Our window films rank among the industry’s best products for energy conservation.

Heat Control Window Film FAQ
Absolutely. Window film cools your interior, enhancing comfort and concentration. Window film also offers UV protection. The film allows you to enjoy window views and natural light in complete comfort, while you go easier on your AC unit throughout the summer.

Window film is not just a purchase. It’s an investment, with a return that begins the day the tint is installed and continues in every season.
Our expert installers measure your windows and properly clean and dry them. Next, the installer cuts your selected window film to fit each window, allowing for subtle contractions and expansions of the panes.
Then the window and the film are treated with a light application of soapy water, to manage static electricity. The tint is applied and pressed with a squeegee twice, to eliminate trapped water or air.
The adhesive is designed to work with glass only—not acrylic, polycarbonate, plexiglass, or other non-glass surfaces.
Window film will not work well on beveled or etched glass, but it can certainly be used to give your windows a textured or etched look.
You can wash and dry the tinted windows as you would any other windows. Just avoid ammonia, and any sharp cleaning tools that could scratch your film.
Most homes can be finished in a single day. If you have a number of large or elaborate windows, the work can take two days or more. We’d be glad to assess the work and offer you an estimate for both cost and work hours.
Yes. Today’s architectural window tinting films used for homes and commercial buildings are excellent for double pane windows.
