The concern over solar film on insulated windows is warranted. Years ago, window film sometimes did cause double pane glass to break. Dual pane windows are unique because they are sealed with a space in between that is typically filled with gas. When old, outdated window films were applied, they would absorb heat, and the heat would get trapped between the two panes. The heat would then cause the seal to break, making the windows look foggy.
Luckily, today’s modern films will not cause this to happen, so you can dispel these rumors for good. Modern solar film is completely safe for double pane windows, but it’s still important to consult with a professional window film company that knows about dual panes and what types of window film are recommended for dual pane windows There are some types of window film that should not be applied to double pane windows, but these products are clearly labeled.
