If you already have single pane windows in your home, or want to install single pane windows but save some energy costs too, it is possible to fit glass windows with insulating film to improve their insulation and make them more energy efficient. It won’t be quite up to the standards of a double pane window, and it can sometimes be more of a hassle than it’s worth, but adding window film can be a reasonable solution if you need an alternative to a full refit of double pane windows.
Window films can also serve other purposes, including preventing neighbors staring in and reducing UV-A that can damage furnishings. They’re not the best solution for noise, but have occasionally been used for that purpose as well.
And there you have it! While double pane windows have become a compelling design trend in San Francisco in recent years because of the cooling insulation and the ability to save on your energy bills, single pane windows continue to be a strong choice for ease of replacement and budget-friendly pricing.
