A 3M Night Vision Window Film Case Study

Ask anyone who lives in Denver what they love best about our bustling city and a number of those people will say they moved here for the sun. It is well known that Denver has the most sunshine of nearly any other city in the continental United States. By most estimates about 300 days a year. While the benefits of the sun are excellent, more chances to exercise, a better mood, more vitamin D intake, it can also wreack havoc on your skin, your eyes and your wallet. Here we present a case study on a home in AZ that struggled with the negative side effects of the sun and how he was able to “have his sun and enjoy it too”.

Situation: A Sedona homeowner built his dream house in the desert of Arizona. It included towering windows in front to enjoy the desert views and an almost entirely glass back wall to make his concept of indoor/outdoor living a reality. Since a fantastic view and closeness to the outdoors were his goal, he did not want to obfuscate the views with drapes or blinds. However, he found that during the day the sunlight made it much too hot inside and it was almost impossible to take in any desert view without a harsh glare.

Solution: His builder recommended the new 3M Night Vision Window Film. This cutting edge film:

-Reduces solar heat by up to 59%

Decreases glare by 72%
-Reduces unwanted light reflection

Results: The 3M window tinting performed exactly as residential window tint application should. The homeowner reported, “The Night Vision film has given our home a nice shaded look—it’s just pleasing to the eye. And, when I’m inside at night looking out into the lighted courtyards, the view is clear as day. Without the film, the glare from the lights would have prevented that.” Additionally, the homeowner’s utility bills are down 15%. Meaning, the 3M night vision window film will pay for itself in just a few short years to come.
