From the light they let in to the views they reveal, windows are an integral part of our homes. Yet with all the beauty, they can also create many problems — excessive glare, trapped heat and premature fading of carpets, furniture and drapes. The most unforgivable of these, however, is higher energy costs.
Yet the fix is pretty simple. Tinted window film prevents damaging sunlight from pouring through your windows, eliminates glare and helps regulate the temperature in your home (much in the same way tinted windows keep your car cool).
The EPA Energy Star Buildings Manual notes that about 50% the average American household’s utility bills are wasted because of untreated windows. Tinted window film rejects solar heat from the outside, eliminates hot and cold spots inside and prevents heat from escaping, which is exactly how you lower heating and cooling expenses. In fact, window tint can lower your expenses by up to 30%!
Just like UV rays are harmful to our skin, they’re also damaging to most fabrics, furnishings, artwork, wooden furniture and instruments and carpeting. The light passing through your window each day slowly warps materials and leeches the color right out of them.
Window tint blocks over 99% of all UV rays, which means it protects everything in your home — including you. So aside from saving on energy costs, window tint will also extend the life of your carpets and furnishings while protecting your priceless possessions from discoloration and fading.
Window tint also gives you and your family the kind of privacy you expect to have in your home. You can leave the curtains open without worrying that any passerby can see inside. It also deters would-be criminals from seeing any valuables you may have in your home.
Quickly and easily applied to the inside surfaces of your home windows, installing tint requires no construction, doesn’t make a mess and doesn’t disrupt your life. As long as you avoid ammonia-based cleaners, no special cleaning is required to keep your tint intact.
