When you think of window tinting, you might think about your car, or about the windows on a high-rise office building. But did you know that just like your vehicle and your business, having window film installed on your home’s windows, can have a number of benefits that will allow you to open the blinds even on the hottest days?
We created the following list of 5 of the benefits window tinting for your home can provide. After reading this post, we hope you’ll understand more about residential window film and will know if window tinting is the right solution for you and your family.
1.Health: You probably know that UV rays cause damage to your skin when you’re outside, but over the last few years it’s become increasingly clear to scientists that UV exposure affects skin cancer rates and aging when you’re indoors as well. Having your home’s windows tinted can block nearly 100% of the UVA and UVB rays from the sun.
2.Safety: When glass shatters it’s dangerous for your family, including your pets and children. Just like window tint on your car helps strengthen it, window films for your home can also make your house’s windows stronger by creating a barrier that holds the glass in place if it’s broken by accident or a break-in attempt.
3.Privacy: Untinted windows on your home can be like a welcome sign for peeping Tom’s and thieves because they show everything to the world outside. It can be tempting to hide behind heavy curtains instead of enjoying the view. But window tinting can allow you and your family to look outside while preventing anybody from seeing in, thus protecting your privacy and belongings.
4.Comfort: Have you ever tried to watch a movie on your tv during the day, only to give up in frustration because of the glare on the screen? What about the big game? Adding tint to your windows can reduce glare by as much as 87%. Plus it helps block solar heat, which means your home stays cooler in the summer as well.
5.Cost: When you have your home’s windows tinted, you can actually save money. Because window tint helps reduce heat loss in the winter and helps block heat from the sun during the summer, your energy bill will be lower every month. In addition because of the UV protection that window film provides, you won’t have to replace your furniture as often because the film will help protect it against fading.
As you can see, having your home’s windows tinted, can accomplish many things including increasing your safety and privacy while decreasing your energy and furniture replacement costs. If you have questions or concerns about home window tinting, or you’re ready to find out more, contact us today.
