Tinted vehicle windows are common, but have you considered tinting the windows in your home? Installing window tint in your home provides similar benefits as it does in your vehicle, except on a grander scale. A few of those benefits are listed below.
Appreciate the Energy Saves
Cooling systems work hard in the summer and harder when heat gain from windows increases the temperature in your home. Though you may lose some heat gain in the winter due to the tinting, you'll still benefit from the heat retention provided. Window tinting can reduce home energy costs 30-50 percent. Further, window tinting is an affordable option to replacing windows.
Protect your Furnishings and your Family
Direct sunlight can cause home furnishings, paint, artwork, and even flooring to fade over time. Leather furniture is also at risk to cracks and tears due to the damaging rays of the sun. Selecting the right window tint can block up to 99% of UVA and UV-B rays.
Along with protecting your furnishings, reduction of the sun rays entering your home protects your family. By blocking these damaging sun rays, the household's risk of skin cancer drops, especially in rooms that receive direct sunlight.
A common concern is that window tinting will be too dark to allow light and even potentially kill houseplants. There are a variety of tints to choose from, and some appear clear.
Enjoy Privacy and Safety
Window tint allows you to see out of your windows. However, you can choose tints that prevent anyone from looking in during the daytime.
Further, window tinting film holds the glass in place, thereby preventing shattered glass from accidents, storm damage, or an attempted break-in.
These are just a few of the benefits of residential window tinting. A concern we've often heard regarding this type of tinting is that ages rapidly and ends up looking ugly. We guarantee proper installation that will last for years to come. For more information about window tinting in your home or business, contact us today.
