However, existing windows can be turned into high performing units easily and inexpensively with window film – and does not make windows darker.

But which window film? Each film has its own energy claims, so picking them can be confusing.

Films are rated for their potential energy impact on a home, with a star rating just like the energy star stickers we see on whitegoods.

“Home owners look to film to reduce energy bills, control the temperature, improve safety and security, minimise glare, comfort, block UV radiation, protect furnishings, enhance the look of the facade, increase privacy or to provide signage and decoration,” says the president of the Window Films Association of Australia and New Zealand, Michael Miller.

He explains that many installers across the country have attained WERS For Film accreditation.

The Housing Industry Association supports the window scheme, recommending its members to use this certified product.
